Extra tours to be staged at stadium during half-term break

Irish FA Tours is staging additional tours at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park next week.

Due to increased demand Irish FA Tours will be putting on extra sessions to coincide with schools’ half-term break.

There will be two tours per day on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and a single tour on both Tuesday and Friday.

The tours on 14, 16 and 17 February are scheduled to run from 10am to noon and 1pm until 3pm, while the tours on 15 and 18 February will run from 1pm until 3pm.

Irish FA Tours, which includes visits to the Irish Football Association’s Education and Heritage Centre, aims to conserve and promote the heritage of Northern Ireland football for current and future generations through its tours and other activities.

The tours, run by a team of experienced and knowledgeable volunteers, enable fans to look behind the scenes when they visit the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.

They include a stop-off at the stadium’s media centre, including the press conference room where managers and captains face the media in the run-up to international matches, and a look at the changing rooms and tunnel area.

A focal point is the Education and Heritage Centre, which tells the story of Northern Ireland football using a variety of media, interactive displays and key artefacts from the 1880s to the present day.

Irish FA Tours has introduced health and safety procedures to keep both volunteer tour guides and visitors safe, including hand sanitising stations, new signage and social distancing measures.
