Video: Bedlam in Burnley as Clarets earn Premier League promotion

You’d think Burnley had just won the title for how they celebrated after earning promotion to the Premier League following their 1-0 win over QPR on Monday.

Following Brighton & Hove Albion’s 1-1 draw with Derby, Burnley merely needed to beat their former 2014-15 relegation partners in order to secure a spot in the 2016-17 Premier League season. And they did just that with a goal from Sam Vokes that served as the only score of the game.

In the video, the Burnley players pop the champagne and cheer at the top of their lungs while holding a banner that reads “We’re Going Up!”

The Clarets have not clinched the Sky Bet Championship title yet but can do with a win or draw against Charlton next week or if Middlesbrough and Brighton & Hove Albion play to a draw in Matchday 46.

Burnley were relegated last season after winning just seven games and scoring only 28 goals.
