Burnley ban ITV
Burnley are owed 6m over two years from the collapsed contract
Burnley are owed 6m over the next two years
Burnley will not allow ITV cameras in Turf Moor on match days after losing almost 5m from the collapse of ITV Digital.

The First Division club took action after the Football League lost their case to recoup 178m from Carlton and Granada, the digital channel's parent companies.


If they can come to some agreement with the Football League we would reconsider our stance
Edoardo Abis
Burnley marketing manager
Burnley are owed 6m over two years from the collapsed contract, and with Sky's new rights deal not covering the loss, the club hopes to force the television companies back to the negotiating table.

Burnley marketing manager Edoardo Abis said: "Due to the distress Carlton and Granada have caused us, we have taken the decision to ban them from entering Turf Moor.

"If they can come to some agreement with the Football League we would reconsider our stance.

"If all the clubs in the Nationwide League do the same then Granada and Carlton would have no programme to offer. Maybe then they would start to realise what they have done."
