FIFA is planning to build a football museum including 3D animations, interactive games, trophies and “everything a football fan could wish for” as part of an extension to its headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.
“It is high time that world football had a meeting place for its millions of fans,” FIFA president Joseph Blatter was quoted as saying by Xinhua.

It has been designed by architect Tilla Theus who was the inspiration behind the main building, guaranteeing a perfect symbiosis between the two buildings.

Blatter said Friday an investment of around 180 million Swiss francs will be required for the construction of the extension, which will also include a cafeteria and a creche, and has already been agreed by the FIFA Executive Committee.

Zurich City Council welcomed the fact that their cooperation with FIFA was to be continued in the shape of the project while it also stated that the design plan of the project should be validated by the Zurich Municipal Council.
