Fifa World Football Museum

8.8

The FIFA Museum is an association football museum operated (but not owned) by FIFA. It is rented under suspicious circumstances (the building renovation costed SFr 140 million and was paid by FIFA, enriching the landlord, who signed a lucrative contract with above the market fees for long-term rental; the case has been referred to the Swiss prosecutors, who are investigating potential fraud by Sepp Blatter, FIFA's former president, and his associates). The museum is located in Zürich, Switzerland, across town from the FIFA headquarters. It opened on 28 February 2016. The project, costing over SFr500 million ($563m), is currently under investigation for "suspected criminal mismanagement".

The 3,500 m2 (38,000 sq ft) museum occupies the lower three floors of the renovated Haus zur Enge, a ten-story mixed-use building located in the Enge quarter, across from the Zürich Enge railway station and the FIFA-owned Hotel Ascot. The building also contains a sports bar, a bistro, a café, a library, a museum shop and conference rooms; the upper floors have office spaces and 34 luxury apartments.
