Bend it like Beckham

Manchester United Museum and Tour just recently unveiled a special temporary exhibition to honour one of football’s most famous names: David Beckham.

David Beckham first signed as a schoolboy with the Club at the tender age of 14 and the exhibition records his career at Manchester United. From the training kit he wore as a teenager, to his first team shirts from big matches such as the 99 Champion’s League Final.

He made his first-team debut for Manchester United in 1992 aged 17, going on to win the Premier League title six times, the FA Cup twice, and the UEFA Champions League in 1999. Some of David’s winner’s medals and commemorative shirts feature as part of one of the displays.

In addition to this there are also interactive aspects to the exhibit which sounds really fun! Beckham is famed for the precision of his free kicks, so as a fan you can try to predict exactly where within the goal posts he will place the ball during one of his many famous strikes.

Just as famous off the pitch as he is on it, ‘Becks’ is also well known for his changing hairstyle and as a visitor you can relive some of these via an interchangeable portrait of his famous face.

The temporary David Beckham exhibition at the Old Trafford will be on display during the next 12 months.
