Local teams are set to be immortalised as film stars in a brand new movie exhibit at The National Football Museum, ‘Our Beautiful Game’
The museum, due to open in Manchester on July 6th 2012, will celebrate all aspects of the beautiful game and museum bosses have been working with multimedia production company Centre Screen to create an exhibit which brings grass roots football to life.
The immersive cinema experience celebrates every level of the game and sees local teams take their place in national history, alongside Premiership champions Manchester City and Team England. Teams include Ullswater United, Marine FC Juniors, Drax Primary school, Hackney Marshes and Wallsend Boys Club.
The film, ‘Our Beautiful Game’, will be viewed by visitors on a 10m by 3m high definition wraparound big screen within the museum. It captures every element of football at all levels, from pre match build up to the aftermath following the final whistle, and will take you on a journey through everything that makes football so special to individuals, fans, and players – from kids in the street to international superstars.
Richard Oliver, Director of The Beautiful Game said, "We went out expecting to find broken Britain, but instead found a country totally united by its love of football."
Kevin Moore, National Football Museum Director said, “This film celebrates everything we love about the game. Football is so much more than just the game we see on the TV; it’s a part of our life, culture and passion. The film is a must see, and makes one of the great attractions for the new museum in Manchester when it opens in July.”
