Marcelo joins WPG

22-11-18

We Play Green is ecstatic to announce that Brazilian football player, Marcelo Vieira, will join our team of engaged football players as an ambassador!

Marcelo is best known for his long-lived career with Real Madrid, winning 6 La Liga titles, 5 Champions League titles, and as one of the greatest left-backs in Brazilian National team history. The 34-year-old is still making an impact on the pitch by playing for Olympiacos FC in Greece, but has decided to join the WPG team to ensure he is making just as big as an impact off of the pitch.

“I am very concerned about the climate and nature and am impressed by the work Morten and We Play Green is doing to save us and the planet,” he told NRK.

As a WPG ambassador, Marcelo will take on a more senior role, meaning he will act as more of a mentor to other players. With almost 17 years of experience as a professional player and an expansive following of over 60 million people, players like Marcelo have the untapped potential of using their platform to create support for the green shift.

We cannot wait to see what we will achieve together with Marcelo! Together, many avenues have opened to save ourselves and the planet.
