Following its debut in Melbourne, Real Madrid World of Football Experience will tour the world for five years, visiting a further 14 cities in a partnership between Real Madrid C.F. and two leading Australian entertainment companies, iEC Exhibitions! and TEG.

Real Madrid World of Football Experience captures more than a century of sporting history. It includes original memorabilia such as original football boots worn by Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and Raúl; Federative cards of players such as Roberto Carlos and Raúl González Blanco and the original documentation by the president, Mr. Santiago Bernabéu, to the Organising Committee of the European Cup officially confirming the participation of Real Madrid C.F. in the competition on April 12, 1955.

“It is a global touring experience that allows visitors, through spectacular audio-visual displays, physical interactive experiences, playable gaming technologies and historical club memorabilia and trophies, to go behind the scenes to discover the spirit, passion, players and epic victories that make Real Madrid C.F. the Club of the Century,” said Tony Cochrane, Founding Director of iEC Exhibitions!, the producer of the exhibition, in partnership with TEG.

Geoff Jones, CEO of TEG, Australasia’s leading ticketing, live entertainment and data analytics company, said: “The visitor experience offers 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.”

Mastercard is the official Australian partner of Real Madrid World of Football Experience.

Real Madrid World of Football Experience is on at Melbourne Museum Plaza for a LIMITED SEASON from Saturday 9 June until Sunday 5 August.
