What goes on behind the scenes in the build up to a match? How is the club leading research to help prevent player injury? Which Southampton player introduced football to Brazil in 1894? And which player had the worst haircut in the 1980s?
Discover these things and a great deal more in a major exhibition about the Saints which will explore the club’s rich history and how it operates today to meet the challenges of Premier League Football. The club runs one of the country’s leading football academies and a state-of-the-art training facility at Staplewood, in the New Forest. The academy has produced many players who have gone on to play international football and become shining stars on the world stage.
Southampton Football Club has a strong spirit of community, with a legion of loyal fans, and has been an integral part of the City’s life since its foundation more than 130 years ago. The exhibition will chart the highs and lows, and provide an insight into life at the club through the supporters, ex-players and backroom staff.
