The German football federation says the blue V-neck garment will be one of the exhibits when the museum opens in Dortmund in 2014.

The sweater was acquired for 1 million Euros ($1.43 million) at a charity auction by a retail chain and will be donated to the museum.

Loew wore the sweater at all World Cup games except against Serbia, which Germany lost.

However, the lucky charm failed to work its magic in the semifinal against Spain, with Germany losing 1-0 to the subsequent tournament winners.
