At a press conference in São Paulo yesterday, Soccerex announced that Brazilian football superstar Neymar has been confirmed as their ambassador ahead of the Soccerex Global Convention in Rio de Janeiro, 26-30 November 2011.

Heralded by many as the future of Brazilian football, Neymar of Santos FC is one of the most sought after players in world football today, the subject of immense transfer speculation and an idol in his homeland. Commenting on this impressive latest addition to the Soccerex team, Duncan Revie, Soccerex CEO said:

“I am delighted to have Neymar as our ambassador. He is a huge global star and it is a big step for Soccerex to have a current player of his stature representing us.  It is great to see him taking an interest in matters off the field at such an early stage in his career, which I am sure will be a long and successful one”

Neymar, who attended last year’s Soccerex Global Convention in Rio de Janeiro, becomes Soccerex’s first official ambassador still playing at the highest level and his role will focus on education issues and social responsibility around Soccerex events.  In becoming Soccerex ambassador, he join’s fellow Brazilian Carlos Alberto Torres, captain of the legendary Brazilian World Cup winning team from 1970.

The press conference also featured Andres Sanchez, President of Corinthians and the man responsible for bring Brazilian legend Ronaldo to the club. Sanchez confirmed that the club will have a big presence at this year’s Global Convention and that they will be bringing some of their big names to experience the event and to enhance the club’s marketing activities. Corinthians will be joining a host of clubs from Brazil and the rest of the world at this year’s event including Barcelona, Flamengo, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Boca Juniors, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Santos.  

The Soccerex Global Convention 2011 will be held from 26-30 November 2011 and will consist of an in-depth conference schedule, packed exhibition, a large range of networking and two-day Football Festival all taking place in the host city to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final, Rio de Janeiro.
