National Football Museum

The National Football Museum launch with Rachel Brown and Jill Scott

The PFA is proud to support the National Football Museum in Manchester. Launched in 2012 as a international visitor destination, and has taken over the whole of the city’s landmark Urbis building.

The National Football Museum exists to explain how and why football has become ‘the people’s game’, a key part of England’s heritage and way of life. It also aims to explain why England is the home of football, the birthplace of the world’s most popular sport.

The Museum is for everyone, regardless of age, gender, disability, sexuality, religion or any other factor.  It is not just for those who are interested in or passionate about the sport.

“Manchester is possibly the UK’s biggest footballing city with millions of football fans as well as other tourists visiting every year.”

National Football Museum director, Kevin Moore.

It was launched as a  “world-class home for the greatest collection of football memorabilia ever assembled” and is already ahead of schedule to become one of the biggest visitor attractions in the UK.

The National Football Museum will continue to work in close partnership with the major national and international football bodies, to reflect and celebrate their history, including the PFA, FIFA, UEFA, The Football Association, the Premier League, the Football League and the League Managers Association.
