English Schools' FA Continue Fantastic Partnership with National Football Museum
Tuesday 05 December 2017By ESFA Office
The ESFA are thrilled to be able to confirm their ongoing partnership for 2017/18 with the National Football Museum. By bringing together two fantastic football-based Charities, we plan to continue not only be able to offer our membership some great opportunities at the Museum but also to be able to work together to promote the past, present and future of football to all fanatics - whatever their age!
The Museum, based in Manchester, has a long term mission to uphold its responsibility to protect football's heritage and culture for future generations as well as current audiences, but it acts as a fantastic destination for everyone, regardless of their level of interest in the sport. By introducing community and cultural factors of the game to visitors, the museum not only shows off some incredible collections with over 140,000 items, but tells the stories of the artefacts, teams, fans and also helps the history of football to come alive with interactive exhibits too!
Tim Desmond, Chief Executive, said "The National Football Museum is committed to learning as part of our social mission and therefore we are delighted to be continuing our partnership with the English Schools Football Association (ESFA).
The ESFA is a key part of what we see at the ‘Football Family’ and we are again looking forward to welcoming their young people to the museum to recognise their achievements and engage them with the heritage of the game.”
Together, the NFM and ESFA are working on ways in which we can engage and reward our Member schools and teams as a result of the new partnership. We plan to host some flagship ESFA events at the Museum as well as offering exclusive deals on education sessions led by the Museum's fantastic Learning Team. Last year the Museum offered some great deals on tours and visits for our National Cup champions and we also let our members know about any other exciting offers and exhibitions available. This year, we are hoping to work even more closely with the Museum on some exciting new prospects and will announce further information as soon as the details are available.
In the meantime, entry to the museum is FREE and well worth a visit - tweet us any pictures of your visits so we can share the wonderful journeys you go on!
