世界盃美洲區 Gianni Infantino and President Paul Kagame were present as Rwanda became the latest country to follow the FIFA President’s call for every member association to name a stadium after Pelé, following his passing in December 2022.
President Infantino made the call for the global football community to join together in solidarity to forever remember the three-time FIFA World Cup™ winner earlier in 2022 – and at the inauguration ceremony in Rwanda, gave a speech to acknowledge the gesture.
President Infantino ended his address by praising the work carried out by President Kagame and his government.
