About the event
Classic Football Shirts ‘Fabric of Football’ exhibition gives fans the chance to see some of “The greatest football shirts of all time.”
- Global leaders of vintage shirts curate a display 500 + designs, including collections from iconic World Cup Finals, Champions League, FA Cup matches and more
- Pop-up exhibition to support the Bobby Moore Fund (Cancer Research UK) for the ‘Football Shirt Friday’ campaign
The four day pop-up exhibition captures memorable moments in the history of the game and document the evolution of football shirt design, focussing on the incorporation of classic designs in the latest Nike and Adidas releases ahead of the 2018 World Cup. The exhibition will include sections dedicated to the World Cup, European Championship, Champions League, Cup Finals, and more. Each will include shirts never displayed before and of extreme rarity. As the season approaches its climax and the buzz around the World Cup Finals kicks into full swing, there will be both a topical and editorial angle to the event.
The four day pop-up exhibit hopes to attract over 5000 people building on the success of a one day launch at the National Football Museum in Manchester last month which saw over 2000 attendees, supporting the Bobby Moore Fund as part of the Football Shirt Friday campaign to raise awareness of bowel cancer and encourage donations throughout the festival of football fashion.
Classic Football Shirts director Doug Bierton said: “We’ve been building our own private collection for the last few years and have had a great deal of enjoyment in putting these amazing shirts together. Now I feel it’s time to share them with the rest of the Football community and beyond.”
