FIFA President Infantino welcomes President of Rwanda

FIFA President Gianni Infantino and FIFA Deputy Secretary General Zvonimir Boban invited the President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, to visit the FIFA World Football Museum in Zurich on Thursday, 8 June 2017.

Guided by the museum staff, they went on a 45-minute trip through football history focusing on objects related to the football history of Rwanda, the FIFA World Cup™ as well as the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ and how the game is able to connect and inspire people all around the globe.

Just three weeks ago, on International Museum Day, the museum organised a lecture on nation-building and the role of football in that process in Rwanda under President Kagame in the 1990s.

The President of Rwanda enjoyed the tour through the permanent exhibition – a mix of original artefacts, storytelling, films, multimedia experiences and interactive stations.

“It is a big occasion for me to visit this wonderful museum”, President Kagame wrote into the museum’s guestbook after his visit.
