FAI in association with Galway 2020 presents


LOCATION Galway City


As part of the build-up to UEFA EURO 2020 football competition, the National Football Exhibition moves to Galway for a two-week stint. The exhibition charts the history of the national team and contains a treasure trove of memorabilia.


Running alongside the National Football Exhibition, Galway 2020 and FAI present Onside, a project that brings people together through football. Onside kicks off on Saturday 21 March, International Day Against Racism, with football games in Eyre Square involving teams from different cultural communities in Galway.

On the following weekend (28 and 29 March), Onside will take over Eyre Square once more, inviting people to watch or join a series of fun street games, demos and a unique football-led language exchange.

Finally, Onside will deliver a series of workshops to local schools and clubs, pooling experiences from across Europe to discover how we can cross cultural divides through football.
