Our five-part series ‘5 years – 5 topics – 5 pictures’, in celebration of the five-year anniversary of the museum, looks back at a selection of memorable moments through five different topics. We continue with part 3: The World Cup Champion visitors
Merely World Cup champions, heads of state and the FIFA President are permitted to touch either of the two World Cup trophies with their bare hands. Our staff at the FIFA Museum wear the typical white museum gloves when handing over a trophy to a world champion during a visit. For them, the moment is also very exceptional, as the trophy often symbolises the greatest success of their career.
