The exhibition offers a unique, 3D immersive experience for football and gaming fans alike, taking them on a journey through the history of football-themed video games from their first release in 1973 to present day.

Museums have been transformed by digital technology, allowing visitors from all over the world to learn about and experience different cultures around the clock. This is an ideal space for conveying sports history and innovation, which often cross borders and cultures," highlights Federico Winer, who heads the Sports Line of Business in Switzerland and acted as Project Manager during the development.
