Description

Visit the Irish Football Association Education and Heritage Centre and take in a Stadium Tour at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.

The Education and Heritage Centre tells the unique story of Northern Ireland football using a variety of media, interactive displays and key artefacts from the 1880s to the present day.
 
Visitors will be able to relive the atmosphere of famous nights, gain insights into the drama on and off the pitch and feel the rush of emotions shared by everyone in the stadium – win, lose or draw.
Northern Ireland have achieved so much on the global stage and the centre covers it all. As the world's fourth oldest governing body, the story starts at humble beginnings in 1880, weaving its way through three appearances in world cup finals to the country's first appearance at a European Championship finals in France back in the summer.
The centre will allow fans to relive their favourite moments following Northern Ireland, whether it was the famous win over England in 2005, that goal in Spain in 1982 or Gareth McAuley's header against Ukraine in Lyon.
The centre is self-guided and visitors will have 1 hour to explore the centre before the official stadium tour begins. IFA staff and volunteers will be at hand to assist and make visit the best possible experience.
