Irish FA Tours

Irish FA Tours is excited to welcome visitors back to The National Football Stadium at Windsor Park. We may not be able to get everyone back into the stadium to watch live matches but a visit to the Education and Heritage Centre will have you reliving past games and reminiscing about wins and defeats.

We have carried out Risk Assessments and put in place new health and safety procedures in line with government advice and local health requirements. This will ensure the best experience possible whilst visiting Irish FA Tours.

The Education and Heritage Centre tells the unique story of Northern Irish football using a varied range of media, immersive physical interactives and key artefacts from the 1880s to the present day.

Here, visitors will relive the atmosphere of match day, gain insights into the drama on and off the pitch and feel the rush of emotions shared by everyone inside the stadium, whether their team wins or loses. 

Each visitor, whether schoolchild or grandparent, will leave having understood the achievements of football in Northern Ireland, feeling a sense of pride at our country’s unique contribution to the world sport and having enjoyed a taste of the beautiful game.
