Brabners Chaffe Street advises National Football Museum

Brabners Chaffe Street advises National Football Museum

Monday 20th August 2012

Leading North West law firm Brabners Chaffe Street has acted for the National Football Museum ahead of its launch tomorrow.

The firm advised the museum on the lease of the Urbis centre, its new home in Manchester, and the negotiation of its grant funding contract with Manchester City Council.

The legal team at Brabners Chaffe Street was made up of Ross Shine, Property Partner, John Boydell, Corporate Partner and Stephen Claus, Charities and Social Enterprise Partner.

Ross Shine said: “We are delighted to have advised the National Football Museum on its move to Manchester. Urbis is a prestigious multi use building in central Manchester and the ideal location for such a high profile cultural attraction that has both national and international appeal and is set to become one of the top places to visit in the UK. Advising the museum complements the work of our sports law team, the leading, and largest, practice in sports law in the UK, who now regularly act for many Premier League and Championship clubs.”

The National Football Museum covers the whole of football's history and collection highlights include a shirt from the world's first international match played in 1872, the 1966 World Cup Final ball and the shirt worn by Maradona during the infamous 1986 ‘Hand of God' quarter-final match between England and Argentina.

The museum has three floors of objects, stories, ‘hands on' interactives and a changing temporary exhibition programme. It will also provide a permanent home for its nationally-recognised Hall of Fame, with new legends being inducted in a prestigious awards ceremony every year.
