Football and the media have always been closely connected. Join former TV and radio commentator Beni Thurnheer on an exciting media journey through time at the FIFA Museum.
The history of the FIFA World Cup is also a reflection of the evolution of the media: from little to more and more, from local to global, from purely informative to entertaining. Football-specific expressions such as the 'Wembley goal' or the 'hand of God' found their way into common usage. Using selected objects from the FIFA Museum exhibition, former television and radio commentator Beni Thurnheer shows the close entanglement of football and the media.
