now open: the La Roja museum

Starting on Dec. 21, you can visit the Spanish national team museum at the RFEF headquarters in Las Rozas!  Among the objects housed in the museum are the ball used in the first ever World Cup final (1930 in Uruguay), the shirt worn by Olivella in the final of the 1964 Eurocopa won by Spain, as well as one of the gold medals from the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.  Also on display are one of Alfredo di Stéfano’s cars, letters written by the likes of Samitier and Zamora and a shirt signed by all of the World Cup winning players from this past July.  And of course, you can also gawk at the Eurocopa and World Cup trophies.

The museum was inaugurated by Prince Felipe on May 24 of this year.

Practical information:  the museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10-19h (except on Dec. 25 and Jan. 1, with special hours on Dec. 24, Dec. 31 and Jan. 6).  The price of tickets is €12 for adults and €8 for children (up to 12 years old), which can be acquired at the entrance of the museum.  There is also an Adidas store on the premises where you can purchase official La Roja products.
