1966 World Cup Exhibition Open

On 25 June, the National Football Museum unveiled the 1966 World Cup Exhibition. The exhibition will transport you back to England’s Golden summer and share the stories of people on and off the pitch who helped make it such an iconic tournament.

Just for fun, and inspired by some of the stories of the key players who featured in England’s win on 30 July 1966, take the quick quiz to find out which England hero you’d be:

The National Football Museum’s 1966 World Cup Exhibition is being created in partnership with The Football Association (FA). The exhibition will be jointly staged at the museum’s Manchester home (opening June 25 until 23 April 2017) and Wembley Stadium (opening July 12) and will celebrate the glory of 1966 and the legacy of England’s win fifty years after the event.

It has been made possible thanks to a £302,500 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) grant. A major part of the project will be dedicated to collecting and sharing memories of the tournament, thanks to the Sporting Memories Network. See http://memoriesof66.sportingmemories.org/. #Memoriesof66
