Instead of the club badge, office of the British royal family, Buckingham Palace, has given permission for a royal coat of arms to appear on the one-off Burnley shirt. Burnley's 1-0 victory over Liverpool 100 years ago - courtesy of a Bert Freeman goal at the Crystal Palace Grounds - was the first final attended by a reigning monarch - King George V.
At the bottom left hand corner of the shirt, the names of legendary manager, John Haworth, and the 1914 match squad feature in a special embroidered panel.
Due to the inclusion of the royal crest, the shirt cannot be mass retailed, but the players' versions will be auctioned in the coming days.
