Gilberto Silva said, “I’m honoured to be heading home to Arsenal to support the work of Street Child United. Their Street Child World Cup is something I will never forget; the children said I AM SOMEBODY and I was deeply moved.

Now I’m a proud Ambassador and in 2016 we will host the Street Child Games in Rio and once again use the power of sport to celebrate the potential of every child, no matter their background, to reach their full potential.”

Gilberto Silva will join special guests including host for the evening Sky Sports presenter David Garrido, and friends of Street Child United for a night of Brazilian themed entertainment and auction prizes including Usain Bolt’s signed trainers.
