World of Football
1 October 2022 - 1 April 2023
The exhibition is a celebration of the historic FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ – the first time the world’s biggest football tournament is hosted in the Middle East.
Like a football match, the exhibition is displayed in two halves: the first half – Football for All, All for Football – examines the universal and global appeal of football – the beautiful game that is played, watched and enjoyed by millions regardless of age, gender, nationality or socioeconomic status. The second half – The Road to Doha – follows the long journey to Qatar 2022, from the first FIFA World Cup™ matches in Uruguay in 1930 to the final match of this year’s tournament at the Lusail Stadium. Visitors to the exhibition can relive memories of some of the greatest World Cup moments of the past, get behind the scenes of Qatar’s successful bid to welcome the world, and see the country’s plans.
The final FIFA Making Memories section will grow during the exhibition, as objects and artefacts are added to celebrate and record historic milestones as teams make new World Cup history.
The exhibition is supported by FIFA Museum, Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, National Football Museum (UK), Musée National du Sport (France), and Qatar Football Association.
