According to the Clarets website: On April 25, 1914, the Clarets won the world’s most prestigious cup competition after defeating Liverpool 1-0 at the Crystal Palace Grounds, courtesy of Bert Freeman’s goal.

The match was the first occasion that a reigning monarch, King George V, had attended an FA Cup final.

To celebrate that triumph, and in conjunction with the 1914 Exhibition currently on display at Towneley Hall, the specially commissioned claret and blue shirt will feature the Royal Coat of Arms instead of the usual club crest. Permission was sought from Buckingham Palace for the club to use this special crest.
