FIFA World Football Museum comes to Moscow with major exhibition to celebrate World Cup
POSTED 01 Jun 2018 . BY Tom Anstey
Fifa's World Football Museum is opening a temporary exhibition in Moscow, Russia, through the course of this year's World Cup.

To be hosted at the Hyundai Motorstudio in the Russian capital, the major exhibition – called The History Makers – will open on 9 June, five days ahead of the football tournament's kick off. The exhibition runs until 20 July, five days after the tournament's conclusion.

As part of The History Makers, the building's facade has been transformed into a giant scoreboard, which will be updated as the tournament progresses. Set over two stories, the ground floor will look at the fans of the competing nations, while the upper floor will be devoted to the history of the World Cup.

Inside, visitors will learn about the history of the tournament and the fan cultures that come together as a part of that. At the heart of the exhibition will be a giant LED screen, which will show highlights and memorable moments from past finals and some of the greatest players to have featured in them.

Two of the most prized items on display will be the iconic World Cup trophies. The current World Cup Winner's Trophy will be the feature attraction, with the classic Jules Rimet Cup shipped from Fifa's Zurich museum to go on display for the duration of the exhibition.

Following the conclusion of each of the World Cup's 64 matches, the ball used for each kick off will go on display, being added to the growing collection as the tournament advances.

In the upstairs area, objects and stories from legendary footballers like Lev Yashin, Pelé and Diego Maradona will be showcased. Among these memories and treasures, there will be a series of short films telling the story of each World Cup final.

“Football fans from all around the world can look forward to visiting a lot of attractions in Moscow during the 2018 FIFA World Cup," said FIFA Secretary General, Fatma Samoura.

"Thanks to this collaboration with Hyundai, this unique exhibition will showcase the history of the FIFA World Cup with many fascinating objects to celebrate the heritage of football."
