While the world’s attention turns to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia this summer, where 32 teams are competing for soccer’s ultimate prize, Forest Lawn Museum is proud to present “GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments”, an original art exhibition supported by the FIFA World Football Museum in Zürich, Switzerland.
The event will feature 15 soccer jerseys from renowned FIFA players from the 1920s to 2010, and objects from four of the six regional confederations that help make up FIFA: The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL), the Confederation of African Football (CAF), and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).
Images, jerseys, soccer balls, medals, tickets and other soccer objects that reveal the greatest and most controversial moments in soccer history—spanning from a pennant awarded to Garrincha, the hero of Brazil’s second World Cup victory in 1962, to the 1998 FIFA World Cup France™ jersey belonging to Zinédine Zidane, one of only three players since 1966 to score twice in a final—will be on display in GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments.
The event is being helding at Forest Lawn Museum from May 3 through September 16, 2018 and is an exhibition that builds on Forest Lawn Museum’s ongoing efforts to present subjects and installations that resonate with contemporary society.
