The National Footbal Museum recently relocated to a new home within the former Urbis building in Manchester city centre.

The new site is twice the size of the original, Deepdale in Lancashire which closed in April 2010. With art exhibitions as well as the opportunity take a penalty against a "virtual goalkeeper" standing between real goalposts from the old Wembley stadium, the site is sure to appeal to more than just supporters of the beautiful game.

Working alongside Wilmslo-based exhibition designers, Mather & Co. as well as the museum fit-out team, Patton Heritage, ClickNetherfield provided 57 showcases for the project in total, including a wide range of Prism, Mono, Inca and Radian designs. World-renowned for our bespoke glass engineering, we also supplied a unique large curved Mono style case with double doors to match perfectly the requirements of the project design team.
