A ceremony for some 100 guests celebrated the opening of the FIFA World Football Museum to the general public this Sunday in Zurich. 

There was a special surprise in the programme as the newly elected President of FIFA, Gianni Infantino, was also in attendance, and he was visibly delighted to open the museum as his first official duty since attaining office. 

“This is the place in which football is lived and breathed,“ he said in his welcome message to those present. “Here you can inoculate yourself with the football virus, if you don’t already have it in you. In this place, only football matters!”
Covering an area of 3,000 m², over 1,000 objects, 1,400 photos, some 500 videos, 60 screens and 15 interactive stations all come together to form a unique football experience. 
Additionally, the museum also boasts a sports bar, a bistro, a café-bar and a library – all of which are available to the public – as well as events and seminar rooms.
