Victor Wanyama lands major FIFA World Cup role

The appointment comes just 22 days before the global showpiece.

Wanyama was on Wednesday named the DStv Connect With Greatness Brand Ambassador.

Speaking during the agreement signing, MultiChoice Kenya Managing Director Eric Odipo said Wanyama was the ideal brand ambassador to represent Kenya as he represents the country both locally and internationally.

“We’re honoured to have a great football player like Wanyama to be the local ambassador of the overly anticipated world football games happening in Russia from next month," Odipo stated.

An estatic Wanyama said he was honoured to be named the brand ambassador.

“It is a humbling experience to be unveiled as the brand ambassador for the DStv FIFA Connect with Greatness campaign. My aim is to inspire other young people into the sport. Through platforms like DStv, I was able to achieve international recognition and finally play international football. As the World Cup begins in June, I would encourage young and upcoming footballers to see it as an inspiration to sharpen their skills and talents in an effort to one-day represent Kenya at the World Cup,” Wanyama stated.

Apart from appearing on the Pay-TV company’s advertising and public announcements, Wanyama will also undertake football clinics for young players across the country throughout the one-month World Cup period.

Last year, Wanyama was also appointed the brand ambassador for Safaricom Limited.
