The World Cup is in full swing, with the “Round of 16” beginning as teams are eliminated this week. We’re fortunate to have a small series of World Cup posters from the 1998 Games that we think are just the ticket to celebrating this exciting time:
Nike Park was an area set up around the Stade De France on the outskirts of Paris during the time of the World Cup of 1998, in the area of Saint Denis. Open to all young people in the form of a dozen fun workshops to sensitize them to the learning of technical gestures articulated on four themes: speed, precision, control and reflex. France hosted this 16th FIFA World Cup for men which was held from June 10 – July 12, 1998. The tournament was won by France, who beat defending champions Brazil 3-0 in the Final.
The main venue was the Stade de France, which was built specifically to host this event that held 80,000 people. The Nike Company created 4 different poster designs to promote their participation.
Each item in this series is an Original Vintage Poster; not a reproduction. Each poster has been conservation mounted, linen backed, and is in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.
