Royal visit for Clarets
Burnley will welcome the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh to Turf Moor as part of this year's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
The royal couple will enjoy lunch at the Clarets' stadium during their visit to the town on Wednesday, May 16.
Chairman Barry Kilby will host the event, one of his final engagements before stepping down at the end of the season.
"It is a fantastic honour for Burnley Football Club to be welcoming Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh," said Kilby
"We would like to feel this is partly a reward for all we do as a community club and especially our close links with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.
"Everyone is very much looking forward to welcoming Her Majesty and The Duke and we can assure them of the warmest of Lancashire welcomes at a club with a great tradition."
