For club and country

Even if the club you support doesn't have a connection to the First World War, or if you'd like to support this project as a whole, you can support the National Football Museum's own appeal.

Please help to create a living and digital legacy to the footballer's who made sacrifices during the First World War.

About the National Football Museum

The National Football 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.

As a charity, the National Football Museum relies on contributions of all sizes from individuals, trusts, foundations and organisations.

Our ambassador

Sir Trevor Brooking

"During and after the First World War, trees were planted in remembrance, marking the loss of life and the sacrifices made. We feel strongly that we should continue this tradition and create a living and growing legacy as a fitting tribute to football’s involvement that people can visit."
