“It is an exhibition that brings together the milestones and the most iconic pieces of Pele’s path and football career.”

Shirts, medals, shoes, trophies, photographic records and historical documentaries, each thing on display marked a turning point or defined a magical moment of the immortal football star.

“For example, the T-shirt featuring a heart was what he wore for his farewell match at the Brazilian team. And with this ball, he scored his thousandth goal.”

Born into a hard life in Brazil in 1940, Pele grew up to be the undisputed “King of Football,” winning the World Cup for his country for three times and scoring 1,283 goals during his prolific and professional career.
