Football Makes History inspired Football Makes Our Shared History, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Northern Ireland.
Football Makes Our Shared History (FMOSH) focuses on games (football, GAA, rugby, hockey, cricket, basketball and netball) heritage in the community. The essence of games in communities across the province and how it’s contributed and continues to influence a multicultural society. FMOSH will bring together a wide range of communities in order to explore and research a recorded, physical, oral and living history of football. Heritage through community games – focusing on women, ethnic minorities, children and special needs, lends itself to a generation of young people to take ownership of the project and celebrate heritage.
Football Makes History brings together history educators and youth workers from all over Europe to develop new educational resources that can help young people explore European history and heritage through the lens of football, as well as use football to tackle social exclusion.
A website to talk about our two favorite subjects combined: football and history. Some of us work in formal (school) education (as teachers or developers of educational resources), others are working outside the school with youngsters. Some of us are football organisations. Most of us are working in, with, around, through football. We initiated a project, and with support of Erasmus+, are working closely together.
