“George Best was the greatest player in the world” Pele. That pretty much sums up Best’s position in world football as arguably the greatest player ever to lace a pair of boots and take to the field. The lad from East Belfast lit up the stage. We’re very proud of him, Belfast City Airport now bears his name as the George Best Belfast City Airport. So if you’re a football fan (or soccer if that’s your local term) and you’d like to find out more about Best, see the house he was born, the streets he grew up in and where he first played, this section will tell you more about the great man and show you how to do just that.
