Describing Otto Pfister as a globetrotter is almost doing him a disservice. In his nigh-on 60 years as a football coach, he has been at the helm of 24 different club and national teams.As part of the "Foot et Monde Arabe" special exhibition, we spoke to him about his time and experiences as coach in the Arab world.

It’s been an exciting month so far, with two world champions visiting the FIFA World Football Museum in Zurich in October. Anja Mittag, 2007 Women’s World Cup Winner with Germany, and Kaká, 2002 Brazilian World Champion, enjoyed being reunited with their respective FIFA World Cup Trophies.

Three months after the end of the Women’s World Cup, the mega-event has its own showcase in the permanent exhibition of the FIFA World Football Museum in Zurich.

From Tuesday, October 8th, the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup Winner’s Trophy will be on display in the FIFA World Football Museum. For a short period of time it will take the place of the original FIFA Women’s World Cup Trophy.

Overview of the events held to complement the special exhibition ‘Foot et Monde Arabe’.

The display case at the FIFA World Football Museum for the 1978 FIFA World Cup in Argentina contains a jersey from each of the two finalists from the Netherlands and the host nation. The jersey worn by eventual world champions Argentina is even signed – but by a Dutchman. How did this happen?
