Houllier, LeBlanc and Pires join as ambassadors for social initiative AFDP Global

March 5 – AFDP Global, the international social enterprise set up to use football as a tool for change in deprived communities, has appointed its first three ambassadors.

Former France and Liverpool manager Gérard Houllier, Canada’s longest-serving women’s international women’s Karina LeBlanc and ex-Arsenal star Robert Pires will help promote the work and vision of the newly-formed group spearheaded by two-time FIFA presidential candidate Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein of Jordan.

AFDP Global, which used to be called the Asian Football Development Programme before being expanded, endeavours to deliver long-lasting social impact through football by funding specific initiatives, making equipment donations and providing other material support.

“All three individuals have a unique authority in the world of football and really exemplify our belief that football can be a force for good in any part of the world,“ said AFDP Global’s CEO JF Cecillon.
