Collections Overview

Collections relating to the history of Manchester United Football Club, its players, managers and grounds from 1878 to the present day. There are in excess of 18,000 items within the Manchester United Football Club collection with a further loan collection of c.1,000 items and a significant archive collection.-The Manchester United Football Club Collection is probably the finest club collection in England comprising items from 1881 to the present day. Included are collections of medals from most of the major successes in Manchester United's history. These include local competitions such as the Manchester Cup, national domestic competitions such as the FA Cup or Football League Division One and international competitions such as the European Cup.

There is also a significant collection of kit and equipment worn by current and former Manchester United players both at the club or on international duty.

The Club programme collection is nearly complete for home matches back to 1945 but both the away collection and the pre-war collections are considerably more incomplete.

The Museum owns a comprehensive collection of pennants swapped before tour and friendly matches, FA Cup finals and cometitive European matches.

The museum also includes such objects as international caps, gifts and trophies, items relating to Old Trafford Stadium, books, printed ephemera, archival material, Minute Books and a small collection of audio, video and photographic material.

Manchester United's collection is most representative of the period 1950 to date although there are periods from earlier in the club history that are also well represented.

Collections Management

Manchester United Museum is still actively collecting items to fill gaps in the collection. A summary of the Museum’s Collections Management Policy will be available to view in due course.

Memorabilia out of our collecting area may be of interest, firstly to your local museum that may be looking to add to their sporting and social history collections, or The Football Museum, Preston. For Scottish items you can contact The Scottish Football Association Museum in Glasgow.

Valuations

Manchester United Museum and its members of staff are prohibited from giving valuations on items held by members of the public. This is in accordance with the policy of the Museums’ Association to which members of staff belong. We recommend that if you would like a valuation you should contact an auction house as their members of staff are trained to give valuations. We also recommend that you get a ‘second opinion’ from another auction house as you may get different opinions regarding the value of the item. Please contact us for an information sheet.
