FA Vase on display at Guildhall

Press Release: 26/01/2005

The FA Vase won by Winchester City Football Club can be seen in the Civic display case at Winchester Guildhall. It will be on display until 25 February, along with a match programme and ticket from the City Council's Museums collection.

The Vase was won by the football club in May 2004 when they beat Sudbury AFC in the final at Birmingham City's ground.

Ross Turle of Winchester City Council Museums Service said "making the display case available to the football club so that fans can see the Vase was an opportunity not to be missed."

The FA Vase can be seen in the display case by the entrance to the Guildhall Gallery during Guildhall public opening hours.
