Diego Forlán has been announced as the FIFA World Football Museum’s official international ambassador. The winner of the adidas Golden Ball as the best player of the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ will help safeguard as well as celebrate football’s rich heritage and culture on the global stage.
“I am very proud and honoured to get the chance to represent the world’s home of football history. My passion and excitement for this new mission is huge. We have already started to create wonderful ideas. Exciting, big new projects are coming up and I can’t wait to start working on them,” says Forlán. “Taking the responsibility to represent football heritage and culture is something significant and meaningful that I can completely identify with, and being able to use my voice to bring the FIFA Museum to a broader audience excites and thrills me a lot. It’s a new and fascinating role for me!”
Forlán meets fellow FIFA Legends
The 42-year-old former world-class striker will promote FIFA Museum’s exhibitions and cultural programme not only in Zurich, but also worldwide. He will also be involved in creating and sharing engaging content around football history and culture on its digital channels @fifamuseum. “Part of my mission will be to exclusively interview other FIFA Legends about their most precious football memorabilia. Based on this idea, we are also working on developing exhibition formats that will be something completely new for football fans from all around the world.”
