An event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Nottingham Forest’s first European Cup triumph will be held later this month.

A fan park will be set up at the City Ground alongside Nottingham-based designers Art of Football on May 30 to pay tribute to the historical night when the club lifted the iconic trophy.

To commemorate the Reds’ success in Munich, the event will have German-themed food and drink as well as the opportunity for fans to watch highlights of the 1-0 win against Malmo with the squad, dubbed “The Miracle Men”, in attendance.

Nottingham Forest, managed at the time by club legend Brian Clough, won back-to-back European Cups in what is the most successful period in their history.

In 2016, the team behind the memorable victory were inducted into the National Football Museum’s Hall of Fame, based in Manchester.

The museum director Dr Kevin Moore told the BBC: “Our expectations have been surpassed this year as our inductees have continued to amaze us not just with their talent, but their commitment to the game.”

Although other celebrations are being hosted on the same date, the club have confirmed that this is the official club event. Tickets and further information will be announced soon.
