Soccer, a tedious sports popular solely because fans can socially engage their fellows while overpaid players run around aimlessly and then pretend to be mortally injured as result of near-contact, has a magnificent new museum.
In the centre of Zurich, and covering 3,000 square metres on three levels, the museum exhibits objects retracing the history of football, with a library including 5,000 works.
The museum is obviously no more entertaining than the sport it honours:
Fifa’s multi-million franc new museum, which opened earlier this year in Zurich, has recorded a loss of 30 million francs this year, according to reports.
All credit – probably in the form of construction kickbacks – to Sepp Blatter who came up with the idea.
