For those who forgot it… The Only A Game? exhibition opened its doors to the public today as the UEFA-driven project takes up residence in the World Museum Liverpool from 11 October to 1 March.
With admission free, the interactive exhibition invites visitors to plunge into the emotions of football, inspired by a selection of prestigious artefacts, trophies and memorabilia, covering in particular the last 50 years of European football.
Only A Game?, which first showed in Brussels last year, has a wider appeal than just to football fans, however, as it charts the development of the European Community after the Treaty of Rome, in tandem with the growth of the European club competitions.
The exhibition's designer, Olivier Guilbaud, worked alongside UEFA's Brussels office head Jonathan Hill to bring Only A Game? to Liverpool as part of the city's European Capital of Culture celebrations. Thanks to the co-operation of partners – the National Football Museum, the Northwest Regional Development Agency and National Museums Liverpool – Liverpool 08 can enjoy a ground-breaking football exhibition for free.
Address: World Museum Liverpool, William Brown Street, Liverpool
Open: 10.00–17.00GMT every day
