Tiled murals showing scenes of sporting glories at Wembley will be back on display for two-and-a-half weeks in in March.

Brent Council announced some of the murals in Bobby Moore Bridge, near Wembley Park Stadium, will be exhibited from March 10 to March 28.

They will show American footballers – a nod to games played at Wembley Stadium since two US forces sides faced off during the Second World War – rugby league stars honouring the annual Challenge Cup final and ice hockey players in tribute to the matches held at Wembley Arena in the past.

Cllr Ernest Ezeajughi (Lab, Stonebridge), mayor of Brent Council, said: “I’m delighted that residents living close to Wembley Park and our amazing keyworkers who are still travelling into work will be able to enjoy these wonderful murals during the month of March.

“We may not be London’s Borough of Culture this year, but we remain the borough of cultures, including the major events we host in Wembley.

“It’s great to showcase that and pay tribute to some of the icons of our recent past especially as we start to look forward to the Euro football finals coming to the stadium this summer.”

The murals, which highlight sporting and entertainment achievements in Wembley, were originally unveiled in 1993 dedicated to footballer and England’s 1966 World Cup winning captain Bobby Moore.

However, many of them have been covered up with advertising boards following agreements between the council and developers.

Local historical groups have campaigned for the tiles to be on more regular or, ideally, permanent display, particularly when matches as part of the Euro 2020 football tournament – rescheduled for 2021 – are held at the national stadium in June and July.
