Uncover more of the hidden history of the women’s game on one of the free dedicated tours, this International Women’s Day at the National Football Museum in Manchester.
Learn how the women’s game grew during the First World War, drawing substantial crowds in the early parts of the twentieth century. Hear the story of Dick, Kerr Ladies, one of the game’s most successful outfits, and find out why this popularity and success could not prevent the FA from banning women’s football in 1921.
Chart the game’s progress and rebirth through the kits, memorabilia and artwork, featuring many fascinating items on show
The free women’s football tours are being staged at 11am, 1pm and 2pm. To join, book your place by clicking here, or enquire about the tour on the day at the Welcome Wing or on the Match Gallery.
