Venue Description

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. The National Football Museum aims to be the first point of contact with football for non-fans and an introduction to wider aspects of culture and history for football fans. It has a particular focus on those sections of the community that do not usually visit museums and galleries. The Museum has a long-term mission, a responsibility to protect football’s heritage and culture for future generations as well as current audiences.
