FIFA to build football museum in Zurich

PanARMENIAN.Net - Football’s world governing body, FIFA, plans to extend its Zurich headquarters to include a football museum, Swissinfo.ch reported.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter said in a statement on the organisation’s website the museum would require an investment of some SFr180 million ($197 million) and would increase employment capacity from the present 380 to 500.

“It is high time that world football had a meeting place for its millions of fans,” Blatter said, noting that clubs such as Real Madrid and Manchester United had set a benchmark in football museums.

The FIFA museum will showcase 3D animations, interactive games and trophies. Design plans for the museum will have to be agreed to by Zurich cantonal authorities, who have expressed support for the project, FIFA said.
