FIFA MUSEUM PLANNED: WORLD FOOTBALL INSIDER reported FIFA President Sepp Blatter "has unveiled plans for FIFA’s new museum project." Instead of being built in FIFA’s grounds on the Zurichberg in Switzerland as originally planned, "it will be constructed in" the Haus zur Enge in Zurich-Enge. The museum "is expected to open" in spring '15. FIFA said that the estimated cost is $111M -- for the renovation of the building, which is owned by Swiss Life, and "realisation of the museum project" (INSIDE WORLD FOOTBALL, 4/26).
