Gianni Infantino Opens FIFA Museum In Zurich

New FIFA President Gianni Infantino opened FIFA's new museum in his first official act as president of football's governing body on Sunday. The 45years old Swiss was elected on Friday, ahead of Bahraini Sheik Salman bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, to become only the ninth president in FIFA's 112-year history.

He inherited an organisation in crisis after several dozen football officials, some holding high ranks in FIFA at the time, were indicted in the United States while former president Sepp Blatter was banned for six years by FIFA's ethics committee

FIFA said it invested 110 million Swiss francs (£79.54 million) on renovating the building with 30 million Swiss francs spent on the museum itself, which features more than 1,000 exhibits. Infantino said “This is the place where football will be lived and breathed, here you can catch the football virus, if you are not already a carrier. This is only about football. It's become a great museum with attention to the worldwide development of football”.
