Families will be able to tackle the trail at Peterborough museum in Broadway from 10.30am on Saturday where they will collect a passport and map highlighting six city centre businesses, who will be hosting football-themed challenges based on the countries they represent in the tournament.

After visiting all six stops and getting their passports stamped, families return to the museum for an exciting penalty shootout finale. One participant will then be drawn as the lucky winner of the championship prize - tickets for a Peterborough United match, thanks to the POSH Foundation, plus a family meal out at a city centre restaurant.

Pep Cipriano, Chief Operating Officer at Peterborough Positive, said: “Excuse the pun, but our family football trail in partnership with the museum is going to be a ball! We're looking forward to seeing lots of families join us for this goal-den opportunity to explore our city centre through an exciting blend of football, culture and learning.”

Sarah Wilson, Heritage Manager at Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Peterborough Positive to support this unique trail, which focuses on having fun and learning. The museum encourages engagement with the heritage of the city and its people, and the trail is an excellent way to do this.”
