Football: Designing the Beautiful Game is a large-scale international touring exhibition from the Design Museum, London which explores the design story behind football and surveys how design has been used to push the game to its technical and emotional limits. From the master-planning of the world’s most significant football stadiums to the innovative materials used in today’s boots, the graphic design of team badges and the grassroots initiatives pushing back against the sport’s commercialisation, the exhibition will provide a rare and fun insight into the people and processes that have made football what it is today.

Football is unquestionably the world’s most popular sport, with a dedicated fan base and a truly international reach. This world-class touring exhibition comes direct to Wolverhampton from the FIFA Museum in Zurich and showcases over 200 objects on loan from The National Football Museum, Manchester, the FIFA Museum, Zurich and private lenders, including items worn or used by the likes of Stanley Matthews, Brian Robson, Pelé, Messi, Maradona and many other soccer giants past and present. The show will also feature selected items from the Wolves Museum which reflect the rich history of football in the city, and specially designed family-friendly activities to add to the fun!
