There cannot have ever been a more world renowned footballer than Pele, the Brazilian genius who is still considered by many to have been the greatest player ever.
He won fame throughout the planet not just for his astonishing ability, but for his sportsmanship on the field and his conduct off it. His name sits alongside Mohamed Ali as arguably the two most influential sportsmen of the 20th Century.
So it is with huge excitement that Boadicea the Victorious can confirm that Pele will be the guest of honour at the Football Writers’ Association’s glittering Tribute Night at the Savoy Hotel in January.
This is an event we have been a partner to for the last six years – bringing together the biggest names from the world of football each year to honour one of their brightest stars.
The evening will celebrate 60 years since Pele first stepped on to the world stage at the 1958 World Cup, and we look forward to presenting such a sporting icon with one of our iconic fragrances during the evening.
Boadicea the Victorious will also be providing table gifts at what promises to be a very special evening.
