On the day (July 22) current Ballon d‘Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo arrives in Shanghai, a CSL match between Shanghai SIPG and Guangzhou Evergrande is slated to kick off that evening. 

It has been confirmed that Ronaldo will attend the match on July 22. Media reports have said that a huge portrait of the Real Madrid and Portugal‘s Euro 2016 star will be unveiled in the stadium. Ronaldo will walk onto the pitch accompanied by 20 kids and interact with spectators. After the interactive section, both teams will receive gifts from the Euro 2016 captain and winner. Another source has reported that Ronaldo is expected to kick off the game.

Although Ronaldo has been to China several times before this upcoming Chinese tour, it is his first time coming to Beijing and Shanghai under his own brand name and not as guest a of his sponsors. He will appear in a series of sponsors’ activities sharing stories of his football career, in order to encourage more Chinese teenagers to play football.
