The FIFA World Football Museum presents a new selection of stories on the topic of refereeing. Twenty intimate showcases explore a selection of interesting facts about the duties of match officials and notable moments from refereeing history.
During the temporary closure of the museum, a mini pop-up exhibition about a Swiss World Cup record holder who is also an ambassador for the FIFA Museum was being prepared behind the scenes. It will be open to visitors from 3 March.
From the goal that sent the reigning world champion packing, to the shirt of the best goalkeeper of the tournament, our 2006 showcase relives Italy’s incredible journey to become FIFA World Cup champions for the first time in 24 years.
