The exhibition incorporates two stories. The 1st is the history of the women's game from the 1880s up to the Second World War, in particular the highpoint during the conflict of 1914-1918.
The 2nd story is that of the recent revival of the game, focusing on the successful run for the Lincoln City Ladies team that came to a controversial end in 2013.
The exhibition has been curated to coincide with the performances of the Lincoln Mystery Plays creation, "The World at Her Feet". The play was written to mark the final centenary year of the First World War. The script recognises the contribution of munitionette workers, some of whom formed football teams.
The players in our Premier League team include:
