    Watch the Football World Cup at the Mercedes-Benz Museum.

Stuttgart feverishly awaits the World Cup.

Stuttgart feverishly awaits the World Cup: the Mercedes-Benz Museum provides the ideal backdrop for enjoying first-class football in a top open-air atmosphere. What’s more, it’s almost like the atmosphere in a stadium, as visitors are seated on the open-air stage or can lounge on deckchairs with a perfect view – a 24 square-metre screen will be in place on the open-air stage throughout the entire World Cup. Nearly all the World Cup matches will be shown at the Mercedes-Benz Museum live.

The World Cup opening match.

On 14 June 2018, World Cup transmissions will begin with the opening match between the host nation Russia and Saudi-Arabia (5 p.m. CET). Until the final around one month later, on 15 July 2018, almost all the World Cup matches can be viewed free of charge. The quarter-final matches are not shown due to another event: from 5 to 8 July 2018 the grand Mercedes-Benz Concert Summer will be held at the Mercedes-Benz Museum. Perhaps time to interrupt the football and enjoy the music of Savas & Sido (with Curse as the lead-up), Clueso and Kontra K.? Entry tickets are available at www.konzertsommer.com.


One highlight right at the start.

The radio station Antenne 1 will be adding a special touch during the Germany matches: these will be accompanied by a live commentator and a well-known football star, and you will have the opportunity to test your skills and win prizes in a penalty shootout, e.g. season tickets for the next special exhibition in the Mercedes-Benz Museum, “125 Years of VfB Stuttgart” from 9 September 2018.

One highlight will take place right at the start: during the first Germany match against Mexico on 17 June at 5 p.m. CET, football professional Benedikt Höwedes will be our guest on the open-air stage. In 2014 Höwedes was a member of the German World Cup winning team in Brazil.

The ALL TIME STARS Summer Lounge.

During the second Germany match against Sweden on 23 June at 8.00 p.m. CET, Helmut Roleder will be the guest of honour during the live transmission. Roleder was the VfB Stuttgart goalkeeper for 17 years, and a member of its German Championship team in 1984.

The ALL TIME STARS Summer Lounge provides a pleasant culinary backdrop to all the World Cup transmissions: before, during and after the matches it will provide cool drinks, summery meals and specials.
