Leeds United warm-up t-shirt acquired by National Football Museum

T-shirt to be displayed.

Leeds United’s warm-up t-shirt, worn ahead of our Premier League draw with Liverpool earlier this month will feature in the National Football Museum.

Following controversial plans in recent weeks to form a European Super League, Leeds players wore "Earn it / Football is for the fans" tees in a united stance against the proposals.

Pictures of the t-shirts were broadcast around the globe and Museum Futures Trainee Tilly Johnson has now arranged for one of the shirts to enter the museum’s permanent collection.

Laura Crossley, National Football Museum Head of Content, said: “We are delighted to get a t-shirt worn by the Leeds United players.

“We have a dynamic contemporary collecting programme and proactively acquire objects that record football history as it happens.

“News of the ESL provoked a strong reaction in fans and players across the country and we were keen to collect objects that will enable us to preserve and tell the story of this huge moment in football.”

The National Football Museum is set to open on 27 May with new exhibitions and displays. Tickets are now on sale at www.nationalfootballmuseum.com

Plans to use the t-shirts to raise money for the Leeds United Foundation will be revealed later this week.
