FIFA and the FIFA Museum to participate in Zurich 'Informatiktage'
On 16 and 17 June 2017, the 'Informatiktage' (IT Days) will be held in Zurich for the second time. As part of this event, the FIFA World Football Museum, in collaboration with the Football Technology & Innovation department of FIFA, will be presenting the latest technological developments in the world of professional football.
Since The Football Association (FA) was founded in England in 1863 and the International Football Association Board (IFAB) – the guardians of the Laws of the Game – was founded in 1886, the rules have only changed in a few areas. And yet digitalisation has certainly had a major impact on the game. As a result of technological developments, in particular when it comes to game analysis, in future referees and trainers will have a better basis for making match-changing decisions in professional football.
During the 'Informatiktage', FIFA's Football Technology & Innovation department will be presenting the latest technological developments in professional football both live and at interactive stations. The new Event Hall of the FIFA Museum in Zurich will be open to the public for free on the following dates:
Friday, 16 June 2017, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday, 17 June 2017, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
