National Football Museum

In 2011 the National Football Museum moved to Manchester and now boasts more than 140,000 items – including the FIFA collection – in what is arguably the beautiful game’s greatest collection of memorabilia in the world.

England is the birthplace of 'the people's game' and, as home to two of the country's most successful teams, Manchester makes for the perfect setting with the free-to-enter museum providing an exciting day out not just for football fanatics but for anyone who appreciates the sport's cultural heritage.

This extensive archive of football relics attracts a global audience; with exhibitions on show currently include a history of the World Cup in 24 objects (think vuvuzela!) and ‘The Greater Game’, which looks at football and the First World War.
