European Super League: Museum collection to capture supporters’ campaign

Did you take part in protests, campaigning or any action against the European Super League last month? If so, the National Football Museum based in Manchester wants to hear from you.

The National Football Museum is looking to collect fan responses to the proposed European Super League and its implications for the game.

And If you have an object or image that could form part of their new collection, they would love to hear from you.

These might range from protest placards, banners withdrawn from stadiums, open letters from supporters groups, to more personal items. The museum would like to hear from both fans of the six clubs involved, those who were not, and women’s teams and clubs.

Curators have already begun building a collection to capture the response to the Super League crisis for posterity, including Leeds United’s warm-up t-shirts (pictured above) and placards from supporter protests.

Laura Crossley, National Football Museum’s head of content, said: “We have a dynamic contemporary collecting programme and proactively acquire objects that record football history as it happens.

“News of the European Super League provoked a strong reaction in fans and players across the country and we were keen to collect objects that will enable us to preserve and tell the story of this huge moment in football.”
