Football Kit Con 2020

I never thought that I would be heading all the way to Edinburgh to see some football shirts but now I am on countdown to March 29th all thanks to Twitter.

On March 29th Football Kit Con will be taking over the BT Murrayfield Stadium (ironically that is a rugby stadium) to show off over 600 shirts, guest speakers will be there, a film will be shown, but that isn't all as there is so much going. In fact there is that much going on the hours have had to be extended so the event will now run 1-7pm. There has also been that much of a demand for tickets the event has been sold out twice but luckily they have been able to expand to accommodate everyone, there will now be a shirt room, a talk room & an entertainment room.  Tickets are priced at just £12 (plus £1.25 booking fee) and include a free programme (you may see a nice little ad from us in there) and a bar will be open throughout the event, so you can have a drink and hopefully meet new people who enjoy the same things as you.

There might be over 600 shirts on display but there will be a lot more as attendees have been given a dress code of football shirts, nothing current but retro or their favourite shirts, it is going to be a hard task for me to narrow down which I want to wear. There will also be shirts for sale on the day with a swap shop also taking place.

It isn't just shirts though as there will be exclusive talks and guest speakers throughout the day, there will also be books at the event with Football Attic will be launching their new book 'A-Z of Football Shirts' book at the event. I can't wait to pick this up and give it a read, if I do get a copy keep an eye out for a review very soon. There will also be art at the event which no doubt I will end up purchasing even though space in the house it  At the event there will also be an auction for the charity Back On Side who support people with mental health issues & challenging life circumstances.

We are making a weekend of it by heading up on the Friday night, having a day exploring Edinburgh on Saturday and then heading to the event on Sunday. Whilst exploring on the Saturday I am hoping we can get to the 6 yard box shop to see what they have to offer, I guess I will be needing to take a fair bit of money with me. On the Sunday straight after the event we will be heading back home where luckily I have the day off as it is definitely going to be a long journey home, but keep an eye on the blog as I will be using this time to do a write up of the event.

If you want to attend be quick as tickets are selling fast, I can't wait to meet some absolutely fantastic people I have spoken to on Twitter since starting the blog.
