The Football Museum opened in 2008 in São Paulo and is one of the most visited museum in the country. It was an initiative of the State Government and City Hall of São Paulo – with the Municipal Secretariat of Sports and Tourism of São Paulo –, with design and support of Fundação Roberto Marinho. The Football Museum became famous for presenting football in an innovative and creative way, as a cultural expression in Brazil. History and technology were united to give visitors an experience that stimulates the senses and enhances the affective memory of the Country’s most popular sport.
The exhibition ‘Football Museum in the Area’ has the purpose of making that experience accessible to bigger audiences. In eight modules, we present images and narratives that show why football is more than a sport: it is part of the development of our cities, our language, our attitudes and social values, and enhances our identities.
In this itinerant project, we have the privilege to expand our collection with stories and references from each city. These acquisitions will be present in the exhibition and in the Reference Center of the Brazilian Football, an area of the Football Museum that is responsible for the research and documentation of collections about the memories of this sport.
Visit the exhibition and be surprised with memories that are part of a trajectory that begins at the end of the 19th century and ends in the last World Cup. Celebrate football and the story of every Brazilian citizen!
Supporting the access to culture is one of the missions of the Department of Culture of the State of São Paulo. To make this happen, we need a lot of commitment and creativity, as will be seen in the exhibition ‘Football Museum in the Area.’ Although the museum is under the Pacaembu Stadium stands, in the Capital of the city, its collection can travel several miles since the exhibition was carefully designed for this purpose. Thus, the most popular sport in Brazil hits the road in a different way: not with a team to win championships, but as part of national identity. Stories, culture, emotions, feelings, good and bad memories, all that rolls with the ball. This is the universe the Government of the State of São Paulo is proud to share with you, in your own city.
