The Pele Exhibition
Between games visitors to Berlin can visit the Pele Exhibition at the Berlin's Potsdamer Platz station which houses an exhibition which depicts the life of Pele. On show are a collection of trophies and memorabilia marking the career of the greatest footballer of all. Exhibits include the famous Number 10 shirt and black boots as well as the white ball he kissed after scoring his thousandth goal in 1969. All three of Pele's World Cup medals hang on the wall next to the sceptre and crown he was given by Yugoslavia's national team in a 1971 farewell match, declaring him king of soccer. There too is the FIFA Player of the Century trophy and a portrait of player by Andy Warhol. The Pele Exhibition will go on tour in Europe and Asia after the World Cup.
