TEG in conjunction with iEC has announced that the Real Madrid World of Football Experience will make its world premiere in Melbourne this June.
The interactive football experience will open on 9 June, just a few days before the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Melbourne will be the first city to host the new, state-of-the-art touring football exhibition that showcases Real Madrid, acclaimed by FIFA as the Best Club of the 20th Century.

Real Madrid C.F. has won a record 12 European Club Championships and 33 Spanish Club Championships. The Real Madrid World of Football Experience allows visitors to explore behind the scenes, feel the atmosphere and discover the culture of the world’s greatest football team as they go on a journey into over 116 years of sporting history.
TEG CEO Geoff Jones said: “The visitor experience will be a truly innovative way for Real Madrid C.F. to connect with its huge global fan base across Australia, Asia, and the Americas. Before this touring experience was devised, the only way to see first-hand the remarkable history of Real Madrid C.F. and its players was to visit the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium.
“Now we are bringing that experience directly to fans, starting in Melbourne. I commend the Victorian Tourism and Major Events Minister John Eren and Visit Victoria for the vision and commitment to bring the world premiere to Australia’s sporting capital.”
Tickets go on sale through ticketek.com.au from tomorrow (22 March) from 2pm (AEDT). Ticket prices start from $19.50. For more information visit: www.RealMadridWOF.com
