Notts County are to be officially inducted into the National Football Museum's Hall of Fame.
On 3 November, The city of Nottingham will host a celebration of football to mark Notts' induction, which recognises the club's status as the world’s oldest Football League club.
More than 3,000 football fans and enthusiasts are expected to attend the historic occasion, which will be hosted by Nottingham City Council and celebrates Nottingham’s status as the City of Football.
Fans will have the chance to meet the stars from past and present as they share their favourite goals and moments from the club’s rich footballing history, as well as looking forward to the future of football in the city and the achievements of the Nottingham City of Football project.
Les Bradd, the Magpies' record goalscorer, said: “Notts County has a very special place in the world of football and we are delighted to be given such an accolade on what will undoubtedly be a very special night for football in the city.”
Local neighbours Nottingham Forest will also be part of the celebrations, with the European Cup-winning squads of 1978-79 and 1979-80 set to be commemorated.
Councillor Jon Collins, Leader of Nottingham City Council and portfolio holder for strategic regeneration, said: “We are delighted to be hosting such a prestigious event to celebrate football in the City of Nottingham.
“We have a proud history of sport, and in particular football, in the city and for both clubs to be recognised in the Hall of Fame is testament to Nottingham as a whole.
“As well as celebrating the rich history of football in Nottingham it is also a time to be excited about the future of football as our status as the City of Football suggests. Participation in football across Nottingham is at an all time high and the City of Football project continues to break down barriers and get more and more people involved in the beautiful game.”
Amanda Chambers, managing director of Nottingham City of Football, added: “This will be a fantastic event to celebrate everything that is great about football in Nottingham, both on and off the field, across all generations, genders and backgrounds and abilities.”
