DOZENS of footballs are being hidden around the city as an art gallery gives people the chance to enter an exhibition for free.

Some 50 specially designed balls will be placed at areas of sporting interest and community spaces in Brighton and Hove for people to discover.

The prize for finding one is free entry to the Goal Power exhibition at Brighton and Hove Museum and Art Gallery.

Goal Power is a celebration of the women who have dedicated their lives to the “beautiful game”, making it as popular as it is today.

Jody East, who curated the exhibition, said: “This has been a wonderful summer so far for women’s football.

“We want everyone to have a go at football whether you’ve played before or not.

“Have a look out for our footballs and have a go, then come and see our fantastic exhibition looking at the trailblazers in women’s football who have changed the game through history.”

People who discover a ball should take it with them to the gallery or take a selfie and present it at the entrance.

The competition, which starts today, is also to encourage people to get involved and have a kick about.

It comes as England have made it through to the final of the Women’s Euros, after smashing Sweden in a four nil thriller at Bramall Lane on Tuesday.

The England squad are enjoying a stellar run of games, their most notable perhaps being thrashed Norway eight nil under the lights at the Amex earlier in their campaign.

England hosts scored six times in a rampant first-half display, with Georgia Stanway’s 12th-minute penalty and a finish from Lauren Hemp three minutes later being followed by a brace apiece from Ellen White and Beth Mead.

The demolition job was watched by a crowd of 28,847, from which cries of “football’s coming home” rang out at various stages as England’s unbeaten run under boss Sarina Wiegman extended to a 16th match with a 14th victory.
