adidas Originals announces SPEZIAL F.C. Manchester

Legions of three stripe aficionados are set to descend on Manchester over the next couple of weeks as another event celebrating their cultural resonance takes place.

In partnership with END. whose new Manchester store opened last month, adidas Originals ‘Spezial FC’ exhibition will open from Friday 18th – Sunday 27th November (noon – 8pm) in a purpose-built space at Circle Square, Manchester.

The focus of the event is to celebrate the culture of football, with adidas quite rightly front and centre. The content of the exhibition will comprise of adidas trainers (both vintage and reissues) that are strongly associated with football culture alongside a mixture of football boots (some match worn) and a complete adidas Spezial archive including unreleased samples, working prototypes and the archival shoes that inspired those designs

To celebrate the exhibition, there will be an accompanying series of events at neighbouring venue CANVAS MCR, kicking off with a headline show from Happy Mondays followed by live performances from Confidence Man, Graham Massey, Liam Fray, DRS, Pastel and Afflecks Palace.

For more information on the SPEZIAL F.C. exhibition and the series of events including talks and screenings taking place at Canvas please sign up at

Admission to the exhibition is free, but donations to the Manchester Young Community Champions Charity (MYCC) are encouraged. The MYCC is a not-for-profit charity that supports young people’s development through a variety of sports programmes, focusing on growing physical, social and emotional health and wellbeing.
