After 7,000 miles, 17 school workshops, 14 visits to top European soccer clubs, 1,250 signatures and 30 days on the road, soccer’s Olympic Torch has arrived in the United States en route to the FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Superstars of the world game, like Lucas Leiva at Liverpool FC, Robert Lewandowski and Marco Reus at Borussia Dortmund, Italian international Alberto Gilardino at Genoa CFC, and the FC Barcelona superstars have all signed it. So too have homeless street soccer players and hundreds of socially disadvantaged school children across Europe.
Now it is your turn to touch and sign the ball before it travels to Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay and to its final destination, Brazil.
Join Orange County Blues Football Club on February 28th, 2014 to take part in this amazing event and the journey of The Ball to Brazil. More details on the event will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, enjoy this recap of The Ball at Camp Nou with FC Barcelona.
