The Leeds United Fans are some of the most dedicated in the world, and the creation of the Centenary Collection really demonstrated that. Numerous companies and fans pulled together to create the collection, either by donating priceless memorabilia or helping to create the exhibition itself.
The project was a community effort; Banana Kick created the overall design and context for the exhibition, the Merrion Centre donated an empty unit to host the collection. Some of the team’s most dedicated fans kindly donated thousands of pounds worth of memorabilia.
Imageco created the wide format prints of iconic imagery that was provided by the Leeds United Supporters Trust. Alongside this, they produced various other elements throughout the exhibition including acrylic cases to protect the priceless memorabilia. They produced a free-standing bespoke structure that hosts interactive games for the guests. Another interactive element was a magnetic board where guests could attach an individual message mentioning their favourite memories of the team. Oh, and they even donated a football table!
Nathan Swinson-Bullough, Director at Imageco said:
“As a huge Leeds United supporter, it was a no-brainer to work on this project and be a part of creating a great tribute to the team. It was so good to see both companies and fans working together to make this exhibition a success and I couldn’t believe how much memorabilia fans had collected over the years.
“The concept was to create a journey through the team’s history and highlight some of the most iconic moments and honour some of the most famous players.”
Due to the popularity of the Centenary Collection, its opening dates have now been extended and it will run until Sunday 22 December. The extended dates will feature new exhibits from Leeds United’s history.
