Strip! How Football Got Shirty is an exhibition of more than 200 football shirts, looking at their design and evolution.

The exhibition examines the very fibres of shirt fashion, design and technology through the ages, from the heavy woollen jerseys of the Victorian era to the heavily branded polyester of today, capturing the growth of the football shirt phenomenon and charting the replica boom and the bold designs that followed.

The accounts of designers, manufacturers, artists and experts are woven throughout the exhibition, but nothing tells the story better than the shirts themselves. Over 200 jerseys are on display featuring bona fide classics, unexpected game-changers and some spectacular own goals.

Have your say in the Icons display, showcasing the top 20 shirts ever created, and pass judgement on the disasters which have made it into the Hall of Shame.
