"The FIFA 100" Charity Auction will take place in London on 4th March 2004 at the Natural History Museum. All the proceeds will go to "Project Goal"
The auction, being conducted by Christie's, will offer over 20 football lots, including memorabilia and unique world football experiences.
A central part of the evening and conducted by leading charity auctioneer Hugh Edmeades, Chairman of Christie's South Kensington, the sale proceeds will be donated to the FIFA Goal Programme Charity - a charity that supports the development of communities around the world through football.
Christie's is a world leader in charity celebrity sales and also leads the global Football Memorabilia auction market.
Who does Pelé think are the greatest footballers alive? This beautiful book, which celebrates FIFA's Centennial, reveals his selection. These portraits, commissioned from some of the world's leading photographers, including William Klein, Patrick Lichfield, Martin Parr, Tierney Gearon, Vik Muniz, Norbert Schoerner and Helena Christensen, are surprising and unexpected.
Unlike the familiar football books that are packed with action shots by anonymous news photographers, in "The FIFA 100" the very essence of athletic greatness is depicted. These arresting portraits reveal the footballer as icon; strength and artistry of movement are implied. In "The FIFA 100", art meets football, and this book is a fitting tribute to all the players who have made the game so beautiful.
It is designed by the award-winning and internationally renowned team of Why Not Associates. With forewords by Pelé and Joeseph S. Blatter, the President of FIFA, the book contains more than 100 stunning portraits, and a biography of each player and photographer and will be available in paperback at exhibition venues, in a hardback edition at bookshops throughout the world, and in a special limited edition signed by players and photographers.
The book is a Royal Academy publication.
