Four legends who left their mark on world soccer history will step on Korean soil.
“Ronaldinho (43-Brazil), Fabio Cannavaro (49-Italy), Marco Materazzi (49-Italy), and Julio Cesar (43-Brazil) will arrive in Korea on the 8th and 9th,” LASING City Group Korea said on June 6.
Ronaldinho will be the first to arrive in Korea at 5 p.m. on Aug. 8 through Incheon International Airport Terminal 1. Nicknamed 온라인바카라“The Alien” during his playing days and known for his spectacular personal style, Ronaldinho won the Ballon d’Or (2005), the world’s best player, and the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) World Player of the Year (2004-2005).
Cannavaro, Materazzi and Cesar are scheduled to arrive at approximately 4 p.m. on Sept. 9. Cannavaro and Materazzi combined to help Italy win the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Cesar was the goalkeeper for Inter Milan’s 2009-10 treble.
After their arrival, they will check into the Fairmont Ambassador Seoul and begin their domestic activities. The four legends will hold a joint press conference at 11 a.m. on Oct. 10, followed by a variety of activities including youth soccer clinics, YouTube shoots, and Korean cultural experiences.
