The Champions Speakers agency has teamed up with the Government of China to deliver world-famous former footballers turned football speakers for the 2019 Football Achievers Awards.


Gabriel Batistuta, Ruud Gullit, Carles Puyol, Oliver Khan, Lothar Matthaus, Steve Mcmanaman and Andrea Pirlo make up an all-star cast at the event aimed at honouring footballing greatness and influencing the future generation of footballing talent in China on the 13th and 14th July 2019.

Guiyang City in the Huaxi District of China will play host to the occasion, bringing together the past and present of the footballing sphere. It will recognise the extraordinary contribution of the planet’s most inspirational footballers, offering awards that include a Lifetime Achievement Award and Football Personality Award. In addition to the award ceremony itself, the stars will interact with youth players, fans, deliver a keynote address and speak to the local and international press.
