Weltsprache Fußball (Football - A Global Language)

Martin Luther King Library in San Jose currently hosts an exhibition of superb soccer photography.

From the introduction to the touring exhibition “Football - A Global Language”:

The Goethe-Institut would like to thank MAGNUM PHOTOS Paris for their cooperation and their commitment to making this exhibition possible, and the DFB National Charitable Culture Foundation WC 2006 ltd. through the German Federal Government for the generous financial support that has allowed this “mini-encyclopedia” of the most universal language on earth to reach as many people as possible around the world.

This is what soccer really should be about and what FIFA and many others gave up a long time ago with ever-increasing commercialization of this sport.
