#FootballDads: World Cup edition!

12 June 2018

Celebrate the arrival of Father's Day and a summer of World Cup action the best way imaginable with our ever-popular #FootballDads competition.

We've teamed up with Cafe Football and Classic Football Shirts to deliver the ultimate football experience for football-mad dads.

Take in the World Cup's greatest moments on a private tour, see the Jules Rimet Trophy gleaming on display, and pit your wits against the kids on Football Plus+ with a family museum day pass.

Bring back childhood memories and relive the tournaments of old with an international Subbuteo set, complete with a miniature FIFA World Cup Trophy for the proud victor. Take your tastebuds on a trip around the globe with a free World Cup sharing platter from Cafe Football, and get kitted out for the summer with a retro jersey from Classic Football Shirts.

To win this golden package for your old man, simply share photographs that capture the relationship between father, child and the beautiful game. Full-kit toddlers, decked out in dad's colours? Celebratory selfies in the stands? Generations of the family, all united by their love of the game? We want to see your snaps and hear your stories.

The deadline is 5pm on Friday 15 June. Share your images with us on Facebook, Twitter (@FootballMuseum) and Instagram (nationalfootballmuseum) using the hashtag #FootballDads for your chance to win this worldie of a gift.

Even if you don't win, we're a brilliant place to bring your dad on Father's Day. Check out and for some great gift ideas, or follow @cafefootballuk for the latest from our cafe neighbours.
