Plans are currently underway to redesign “Urbis”, an exhibition centre in the UK, which is expected to be converted into a football museum.

The redesigned centre is expected to undergo an £8m ($12.7m) reconfiguration to reopen as National Football Museum in 2011.

Reconfiguration of the interiors will involve remodeling the shop, cafe and education spaces.

Urbis was designed by English architect Ian Simpson and was opened in June 2002.

The building features a green glass façade and the centre holds changing exhibitions on the subject of city life, and hosts talks, gigs and other events.

Urbis is expected to be closed from 27 February 2010.
