YOU won’t be able to shout on the boys in green at next year’s European Championships but you can still revel in Irish soccer glory in Cork this March — completely free of charge.
St Peter’s on North Main Street will host the National Football Exhibition from March 9-23 as part of the FAI’s bid to promote the game with four UEFA European Championships being played at the Aviva stadium 2020.
The senior Irish international team last played in Cork in 2016 just before the European Championship against Belarus.
The free exhibition provides access to more than 60 years of the European Championships and relives some of the greatest moments in Irish footballing history, with rare memorabilia, programmes, jerseys and artefacts, interactive stations and a photobooth.
The exhibition is made up of six zones, with each zone designed to give an overview of the various different aspects of football in Ireland.
The zones will be made up of memorabilia displays and interactive stations with videos, quizzes and an opportunity to step up to the mic and record your own commentary.
Visitors can download the National Football Exhibition App from the App Store or Google Play Store for additional information. The exhibition will open 11am-3pm on Sundays and Mondays; 11am-6pm on Tuesdays to Fridays, and on Saturdays, 10am-5pm.
