In the basements of IMA, the scenographers did not go about things halfway. The black walls and the targeted lighting take us directly in the ambiance of ultra-confidential info gathered for the occasion. Four screens display the best moments of soccer since the creation of the FFF in 1919 and the different official jerseys are projected alternately on a white rack.

The famous logo-mascot of the FFF is reproduced life size in the middle of the room, and you can actually walk around the feathers of the French rooster. And to gather historical facts, you can refer to wall charts: feminine football was only integrated to the FFF in 1970!
