Red Stars: A History of Russian Football Calendar

13 June 2018 - 23 September 2018
10am - 5pm


Red Stars: A History of Russian Football opens at the National Football Museum in June 2018. A nod to the World Cup hosts, the display contains 6 original Soviet-era Russian posters (dating from the 1950s-1970s), along with shirts, trophies and other propaganda.

Explore the history of the beautiful game through a different lens this summer. Thanks to the Art of Football project and a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are now able to see some of the fascinating culture that surrounded the sport in the Soviet era, with many posters and objects being displayed for the first time.
