The Football Association is celebrating its 150th birthday!
Some of the greatest names in English football history will come together at the FA headquarters today to pay tribute to the world's oldest Football Association.
This coming year will see the FA bring its unique history to life, telling the story of the founding fathers who paved the way in the organisation’s formative years.
A stunning calendar of events has been confirmed for the next 12 months.
"The coming year will be a terrific opportunity for us to showcase our work to the whole country and the wider world," said FA Chairman David Bernstein.
“It is a wonderful achievement for any organisation and I certainly hope it will capture the imagination in the way it has mine.
“From humble beginnings to today’s global spectacle, we can be proud of this country’s contribution to football."
