GLENDALE, CA.- This summer, while the world’s attention turned to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™, where 32 teams competed for soccer’s ultimate prize, Forest Lawn Museum is presenting GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments, an original art exhibition that marks the premiere traveling exhibition of objects from the collection the FIFA World Football Museum in Zürich, Switzerland.

Images, jerseys, soccer balls, medals, tickets and other soccer objects that reveal the greatest and most controversial moments in soccer history—spanning from a pennant awarded to Garrincha, the hero of Brazil’s second World Cup victory in 1962, to the 1998 FIFA World Cup France™ jersey belonging to Zinédine Zidane, one of only three players since 1966 to score twice in a final—are on display in GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments at Forest Lawn Museum from May 3 through October 28, 2018.

In Forest Lawn Museum’s exhibition GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments, the focus is on significant soccer events and rare collectibles that will forever remind visitors of the triumphs, heartbreaks and real-life heroes like Pelé (Brazil), Diego Maradona (Argentina), and Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal) that continue to motivate young, aspiring soccer players and fans everywhere.

GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments features 15 soccer jerseys from renowned FIFA players from the 1920s to 2010, and objects from four of the six regional confederations that help make up FIFA: The Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF), the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL), the Confederation of African Football (CAF), and the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

"Because soccer is played and revered throughout the world, it unites cultures and societies across international boundaries," said Rodolfo Saenz, Forest Lawn's Senior Vice President, Marketing. "It enables people of all backgrounds to come together and celebrate their similarities, their passions for the world's most popular sport, rather than their differences. The objects in this exhibit reignite a passion for the game and for the engrossing tournament that is the FIFA World Cup. But beyond that, Forest Lawn Museum is honored and proud to be the first museum to host the FIFA World Football Museum's collection outside Zürich and to present this once-in-a-lifetime viewing opportunity to our community."

GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments presents objects from the FIFA World Football Museum for the first time in a new country and on a new continent, reflecting the way the internationally significant sport of soccer unites the global community across continents in both sport and spirit. The exhibition builds on Forest Lawn Museum’s ongoing efforts to present subjects and installations that resonate with contemporary society.

Yahoo! Travel named Forest Lawn Museum one of the Top 10 Free Museums in the country. It is housed on the 290-acre site of Forest Lawn–Glendale, which has been a renowned Southern California landmark since 1906. Featuring a stunning array of art, architecture and three beautiful chapels—Forest Lawn is committed to enriching the community through the educational presentation of artwork that focuses on history, culture and religion.

GOOOOL! The World Cup’s Greatest Moments is open to the public from May 3 through October 28, 2018 at the Forest Lawn Museum, Forest Lawn-Glendale, 1712 S. Glendale Blvd., Glendale, California.
