SFC appear in Chile Football Museum

Sheffield FC have been given pride of place in the Bajo Marquesina Restaurant-Museum in  Coyhaique , Chile. 

Club’s Chairman Richard Tims arranged for several items to be shipped to the Aysén Region city, including a 160th anniversary shirt, a copy of the original rules, and a copy of the earliest known Sheffield FC team photo, which have been exhibited alongside some of Chile’s most historic memorabilia. 

Local sports journalist Eduardo Hormazábal spoke on behalf of the Bajo Marquesina, which is part of the Chilean Museum Register, saying “It's a huge honour for us and we will always speak with gratitude about the World's First Football Club.”
