Goal: Fortuna Sittard Football Club, the oldest professional club in the Netherlands, wanted to convey the illustrious history of the club, its players and successes in its state of the art Fortuna Museum. A 150 square meter exhibition space, designed by architect Koen Savelkoul, located within the Fortuna Sittard stadium, the Fortuna Museum required a digital solution that would bring the artifacts such as photographs, jerseys and trophies to life in a way that would satisfy the long-standing fans while also engaging those who may be visiting the club for the first time.
Challenge: The rich history of the club and its predecessors Fortuna ’54, Sittardia, Sittardse Boys, VVS and SV Maurits, had to be showcased in a way befitting the club and its generations of supporters. In order to provide as entertaining, informative and engaging an experience for visitors as possible, the Fortuna Museum required a solution that would bring context to over 300 historical artifacts. A balance needed to be struck between providing the more in-depth information required by long-serving followers of the football club while also giving those who may only have a passing interest or be new to the club, an experience that would be entertaining and inclusive. The Club desired opportunities of interaction across the museum with all visitor touch points robust and reliable to ensure a seamless experience.
