The Long Night at the FIFA Museum

On 2 September, we will once again turn night into day and open the museum until 2 am for Zurich's Long Night of Museums. As usual, we have prepared an exciting and diverse programme for this year's event.

In addition to our permanent exhibition with numerous highlights from football history, including the original FIFA World Cup trophy, we will present a new tour on the history of women's football this year. You will also be able to enjoy an exclusive look behind the scenes and be taken into the virtual world of football. As a very special highlight, you will also be able to get the autograph of a world champion and four Swiss football legends. Of course, food and drinks will also be available.


Programme for the LONG NIGHT at the FIFA Museum on 2 September from 18:00 to 02:00.
