UFCB pick up top award at North West Football Awards

The University and College of Football Business (UFCB) and Burnley FC won the most innovative non-match day use of a football ground category, beating Premier League club Manchester City, at this week’s annual North West Football Awards.

Paul Fletcher, chief executive at Burnley FC believes the facility, which only opened its doors in September, will now be in big demand for those looking to obtain a commercially based football degree.

“It’s great for the town and the region to have an institution like UCFB right on our doorstep – attracting students and speakers from across the world, and giving Burnley’s young people the chance to study in their hometown,” he said.

“But my message to them would be ‘get in quick’ because UCFB is acknowledged as a world first - to have a university within a football club - and once word spreads we might not have room for everyone who wants to study here.”
