In the organizer's words:

The European Football Championship in our own country is just around the corner. We are all hoping for another "German soccer fairytale" - both on and off the pitch. Throughout Germany, there is a varied cultural program around "King Football". An exciting program also awaits visitors in Hamburg.

From May 7 to September 1, the BallinStadt Emigration Museum is also taking a look at a particularly interesting facet of the global ball game in the special exhibition "Football & Migration" . "Migration and soccer are inextricably linked. This symbiosis is exemplary for our lives and shows in various ways the importance of sport on a social level," says Volker Reimers, Managing Director of BallinStadt.

The role of the migrant background in the national team plays a central role in the theme, with the current focus on Euro 2024. How has the importance and visibility of professional male and female players with a migrant background developed over the decades?

Other topics include internationality and globalization or the racism that still exists in parts of soccer. "The special exhibition at the Emigration Museum is designed to invite visitors to discover and be amazed, and to inspire reflection with the odd 'aha' moment," continues Reimers.
