Just A Ball Game? vitrines feature at National
Football Museum as part of 13th birthday celebrations.
Celebrations for Just A Ball Game?’s 13th birthday begin on 9th November 2023 with the unveiling of two vitrines which will feature trophies, medals and other memorabilia from JBG’s Women’s Futsal/Fives team alongside their campaign materials at the National Football Museum .
The team won 16 league, cup and tournament titles between their formation in January 2014 and April 2018, and finished regional and national runners up a further 3 times during those 4 years of dominance.
Alongside the exhibit cases JBG? will have their patrons women’s game exhibition panels on display and a small stand handing out free resources to those visiting the museum this week.
The LGBT+ campaign has been working with the National Football Museum on a number of event days since it opened its doors on the Urbis site in the summer of 2012.
It’s hoped that in February 2024 JBG? will co-curate a fan exhibition featuring items collected from the 2023 Women’s World Cup, including a giant 20ft flag with over 4.500 fan names and messages of support for England’s Lionesses WWC Final squad alongside media and photographic collections from supporters who travelled out to Australia and New Zealand for the tournament.
The JBG? displays and staffed stand can be visited on these dates:
Thursday 9th Nov 10am -5pm, Friday 10th Nov 12noon to 5pm, and Saturday 11th Nov 10am to 5pm.
