The Art of the Football Shirt
When: 14 June – 28 June (Shankly shirt displayed over 2 selected dates)
Where: Camp & Furnace
We’re delighted to announce that The Shankly Family Experience will be contributing to The Art of the Football Shirt in Liverpool. Hosted at Camp & Furnace, we’ll be showcasing an extremely rare football shirt worn by the one and only Bill Shankly.
The shirt we have chosen to feature in this spectacular free exhibition dates back to Bill’s early days of football at Preston North End Football Club. The vintage jersey will only be displayed for a limited number of set days.
So, make sure you’re there on Wednesday 27th June or Thursday 28st June to see for yourself. The special shirt will be revealed from 4:30pm and available to see until 7pm.
Bill Shankly slipped on the famous jersey during the 1938 FA Cup Final. The victorious match saw Preston come out on tops over Huddersfield with a 1-0 win. The game was the pinnacle of Bill’s playing career.
