Welcome to National Sporting Heritage Day

National Sporting Heritage Day Promo 2021

The annual celebration began in 2014 with a handful of activities and has grown each year to cover a variety of events and promotional activities.  There are many ways to get involved from hosting an event to promoting your work and sporting collections online all with support from Sporting Heritage CIC.

National Sporting Heritage Day can help your organisation find new audiences, celebrate your sporting pioneers, and inspire a new generation. The public can get involved by attending an event in their area or by engaging with #NSHD2022 and exploring sports heritage online.

On the 30th September we celebrated this year’s National Sporting Heritage Day.

We saw fantastic engagement with this year’s campaign from museums, community groups, National Governing Bodies of sport, schools and others. This year we hoped to use National Sporting Heritage Day to encourage people to celebrate and share their sporting heritage and use it to inspire others, and we saw some brilliant projects focusing on inter-generational learning, reminiscence sessions and women’s and disability sport. We also saw brilliant content being shared across social media using #NSHD2021

We enjoyed Twitter take-overs from our Sporting Ambassador’s Ian McMillan and Nick Matthew OBE, and the launch of our first online exhibition, new education resources, and illustrated family quiz.

Over the next few months, we will begin to share some of this amazing work, bringing you the best of National Sporting Heritage Day 2021.
