1954 Football World Championship comes to life in ELA room system

Mobile “World Championship Box" travels through Germany

“Rahn should be shooting from the background - Rahn shoots! Goal! Goal! Goal!” radio reporter Herbert Zimmermann yelled into the microphone on 4 July 1954 - as Germany won the Football World Championship.

Now a special exhibition of the “Museum of the 1954 World Championship” serves as a reminder of this special moment in German sport history.

A mobile World Championship Box is travelling through the cities that were home to the protagonists - players and coaches - of the successful world championship. Other cities are also included in the tour.

The World Championship Box is a speciality module from ELA Container, the specialist for mobile room systems from Haren (Ems). In the premium container with a size of 30 square metres, visitors experience the unforgotten moments of the 1954 World Championship and its heroes up close and personally. The exhibits and memorabilia include documents and artefacts surrounding the qualification games, the 5 final round games and the finale.

Jerseys, balls, cups, medals, tickets, programmes, the goal net from Wankdorfstadion stadium, the clock from the announcer’s booth and a board from the seats of the grandstand are on display among other things. An image gallery with large-format posters, photos and graphics forms an authentic setting for the finale in Bern.

A reproduction of the Wankdorfstadion stadium in Bern as of 4 July 1954 at the scale of H0 1:87 is one of the highlights. Visitors can place and position one or more miniature spectator figures in the model according to their wishes. Everyone therefore gets their own place in the finale of Bern.

The exhibition draws on the world’s largest film archive “World Championship Finale 4 July 1954" Johann Schlüper – Herzogenaurach. In the World Championship Box, the legendary minutes of Bern with all their highlights are presented on monitors. A special film of the Germany-Hungary world championship finale is shown each time the exhibition opens at the various locations.

“The ELA exhibition room is an ideal solution for us. It can be set up anywhere quickly and easily,” says Hans Schlüper of the Museum of the 1954 World Championship. Cooperation with ELA in the planning phase was very good as well.

As a mobile museum, the World Championship Box can be deployed wherever there is interest. Cooperation with museums, municipalities, associations and other cultural organisations is expressly desired.
