A celebratory exhibition at SeaCity Museum

SeaCity Museum will be unveiling their latest exhibition on March 29th, a tribute to Southampton Football Club. We March On: Southampton Football Club, Then and Now will be open at the SeaCity Museum from Thursday March 29th until Sunday October 28th.

The exhibition offers an inside look at the club. Going behind the scenes to locker room strategising, exploring the role that the Premier League plays in the club's organisation, and celebrating the fans that have supported their team over the last over the years.

You can also learn more about the club's history. Southampton Football Club (previously known as St. Mary's Y.M.A) was founded in 1885 and has been active for 132 years. They officially became Southampton F.C. in 1897 after winning the Southern League title. Past players are recognised for their contributions to the club and the greater world of football, including the player who established the first football league in Brazil and the team that helped secure the club's victory in the 1976 FA Cup.

Throughout the exhibition, the museum will also have other special events related to the exhibition aimed at both big and little Saints fans. This includes an afternoon of history, a crafting day during the Easter school holidays as well as conversation evenings with former captain Kelvin Davis on April 11th and May 3rd. More will likely be added over the months, so stay up to date.

All temporary exhibitions at the SeaCity Museum can be viewed with a regular admission, but if you're not planning on visiting the rest of the museum you can purchase a special 'pavilion-only' ticket at a discounted price.
