With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic starting to subside in 2022, the FIFA Museum was able to significantly increase its number of visitors in 2022, welcoming 195,000 football fans to Zurich from more than 135 different countries. A new special exhibition entitled “211 Cultures. One Game” in collaboration with FIFA’s member associations also opened in Zurich to shine a light on the unique football cultures around the globe.
The permanent exhibition has been partly redesigned to present the Trophy Room, in which all trophies from all FIFA tournaments are on display. The cinema has also been redesigned to give visitors easy access to the lift and to allow them to move freely between floors.
A new collaboration with the Zurich Film Festival was launched to bring football to the big screen, and a series of new live events called “History Makers”, with guests such as Lothar Matthäus, Diego Forlán and Gianluca Zambrotta, was also delivered.
