The National Football Museum has re-opened its doors after 200 days of closures with a brand new exhibition dedicated to 50 of the game’s most influential figures.
The English Football Hall of Fame, supported by the Professional Footballers’ Association, celebrates the achievements of those who have made outstanding contributions to the game, both on and off the pitch.
Stars featured in the exhibition include Tom Finney, John Barnes, Lily Parr, Hope Powell, Kenny Dalglish, Alex Scott, Gary Lineker and Alex Ferguson.

Special pieces will also be on display, some for the first time ever, such as Colin Bell’s MBE, Tony Adams’ England shirt from 1994 and Sheila Parker’s England shirt from 1972.
Players’ own belongings, such as personal music collections, will also be on show.
Tim Desmond, Chief Executive National Football Museum, said: “We are delighted to be able to reopen the museum on Thursday 27 May with our rebalanced Hall of Fame equally celebrating both men and women.
“We are thrilled to welcome back visitors with fantastic new exhibitions, new historic objects and gallery tours, and fresh optimism for the rest of 2021.”
The museum is currently open Thursday to Sunday and is free to City of Manchester residents.
Tickets and timed slots can be purchased on their website.
