If you’re a student please have a look at our press releases and general information to find out more about us. Due to the amount of enquiries we get we are unable to give interviews to students, unless we have an existing relationship with your university. For student filming and photography requests please email us at press@nationalfootballmuseum.com and we will look at these on a case by case basis.

There is a selection of museum images here. You can find past press releases below.
