my name is Kate Carlisel and I am the communications manager for Mr Seedorf.

Yesterday we held an international press conference in Milan (May 27th) and tomorrow (May 29th) he will speak in Dubai.

Clarence Seedorf announced the start of 2 years of initiatives for Goal4Africa....the Live Aid of the football world.

He spoke as the global ambassador and explain all that is to come. Including the first match July 12th at Allianz w Clarence and a throng of contemporary world-level players, many of whom Clarence has played with in different countries, whose names will be announced shortly... officially, only Clarence has announced his commitment and it has been Clarence who has tirelessly gotten in touch with the others to solicit their participation. That said, he has spoken with those whom he knows share a common vision and passion for giving their most.

This truly will be the enormous and has the potential to leave 1billion euros worth of well-allocated legacy throughout the continent of Africa.
