Mini pop-up exhibition in memory of Diego Armando Maradona

In honour of Diego Maradona, the FIFA Museum in Zurich has created a mini pop-up exhibition with various original objects from his career.

Last week the football world was shocked and saddened by the death of Diego Maradona. To commemorate his career, the FIFA Museum has created a mini pop-up exhibition - giving visitors to the museum the opportunity to cherish the life of one of the greatest footballers of all time.

The exhibition contains a variety of objects marking significant moments in Maradona’s unique story. On display, for example, is the jersey he wore when he scored his first two goals for the Argentinian senior national team in a preparation match on 9 May 1979. His first competitive international goal would come a month later.

The official match report from the legendary quarter-final at the 1986 FIFA World Cup in Mexico against England is also on display, alongside an original ticket for the 1986 World Cup Final in which Maradona became a World Champion. These objects are accompanied by a touch screen monitor, which allows visitors to relive Maradona's most iconic goals, his most memorable tricks and much more.

The mini pop-up exhibition is open to all visitors to the permanent exhibition of the FIFA Museum in Zurich with immediate effect and until further notice. More about Maradona's unique life and career can be found in our homage - Diego Armando Maradona: "The King of Soccer".
