Dear Supporter

Re: University & College of Football Business

Prior to the public launch of the world's first institution of higher education in football business at Turf Moor tomorrow (Friday), I write to introduce the concept to you as a valued supporter of Burnley Football Club.

The University & College of Football Business is being run as a separate entity to Burnley FC but as the first educational establishment of its type to offer three different degree courses in the football industry will be a valuable addition to Turf Moor in bringing round-the-year usage to parts of our wonderful stadium.

For the full package of information on UCFB and how it will operate, see:

The UCFB website provides a full Prospectus, which can also be requested from Student Recruitment & Admissions Officer Lucy Phelan by email at 

The three degrees courses that are available beginning September, 2011 are:

Football Business & Finance (BA Hons)
Football Business & Media (BA Hons)
Football Business & Marketing (BA Hons)

All programmes are three-year degree courses, validated by our educational partner Buckinghamshire New University.

These degree courses provide the opportunity for a student to study a traditional subject area, motivated by an industry of great interest.

If any members of your family of university age are considering a university course and want to study at 'their club' to gain a valued qualification in football business please contacts us.

For further information, email Lucy Phelan or call our admissions office on 0843 208 2222

Kind Regards

Paul Fletcher MBE
