Zurich's FIFA Museum close to completion

Work on the interior of the FIFA World Football Museum began last month, with the venue on target to open in Zurich in the first quarter of 2016.

Major construction work has been underway since March 2014. For the interior, fitting-out work is being undertaken on all three exhibition levels in order to install the complex background technology for more than 1,000 exclusive exhibits. The museum will have an interactive world of experiences with no fewer than 60 screens, as well as what FIFA terms a 'unique pinball machine'.

Stefan Jost, CEO of FIFA Museum said: "It is great that work has finally begun on the inside of the museum. Everything that we have only known from plans so far is now beginning to take shape."

Once complete, the FIFA World Football Museum will have an exhibition area measuring more than 3,000m² over three levels, covering all aspects of the world of football.
