Guest Speaker: Guillem Balague
Guillem Balague is a renowned football journalist, author and presenter who appears regularly both on Sky Sports live match coverage and on the weekly round-up show Revista de La Liga. He is also the UK Correspondent for AS, the Madrid-based Spanish sports newspaper and Onda Cero, a Spanish national radio.
His work appears regularly in The Telegraph, Bleacher Report and in Champions magazine. In 2013, Guillem wrote the first authorised portrait of Leo Messi, full of insight and conversations with coaches, players, teachers and his family. The book, ‘Messi’ was shortlisted for the Football book award in the UK in 2014.
Guillem heard about FBB’s Legacy Projects in the favelas of Salvador during the World Cup and was immediately attracted to FBB’s ethos and vision. Guillem kindly contacted us and offered to donate the proceeds of his ebook “Guillem Balague’s World Cup diary” to FBB. We got talking, and when he spoke to us about his own desire to do good with football, it soon became clear that we had common goals and passions. We invited Guillem to be our patron, and we are extremely proud that he accepted.
