Sporting Memories

Sporting Memories enables older sports fans (50+) to meet and reflect on the beautiful game.

The group usually meets at the museum on Monday and Wednesday mornings. It involves themed discussions where everyone has the opportunity to listen to and share memories about amazing players, great games or match-going-anecdotes.

With the museum currently closed, our Sporting Memories groups are continuing to meet virtually (using Zoom) every Wednesday from 10.30am-noon.

In the latest session, our group members are discussing European competition cup finals. From the old European and UEFA Cups to their modern equivalents; even the defunct competitions that still hold cherished memories, like the Cup Winners’ Cup and the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup. What memories do you have of grand European nights under the floodlights?
