Nissan Signs Seedorf As UCL Ambassador

Strengthening their position as the Official Global Automotive Sponsor of the UEFA Champions League, Nissan has signed Clarence Seedorf as an ambassador for this year’s Final.

Seedorf is the only player to have won the UEFA Champions League (UCL) with three different clubs and has shared his thoughts on joining the automaker’s activities:

I’m pleased to join Nissan in celebrating their sponsorship of the UEFA Champions League, and what should be an exciting Final in Milan. One thing I know is that humans like excitement, adventure, adrenaline and speed – and football is all of that! Nissan has embraced the UEFA Champions League, as I did during my career, representing the values of innovation, technology and quality“, said the football/soccer player.

A former manager of Milan, who also played for Ajax, Sampdoria, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Botafogo, will join the brand’s existing lineup of ambassadors and “engineers for excitement”, which counts Andres Iniesta, from Barcelona, Thiago Silva, from Paris Saint-German, and Yaya Toure, from Manchester City.

“Excitement” is the word execs at Nissan are looking for when it comes to this year’s UCL Final, as they will allow fans to experience driving the facelifted GT-R through the streets of Milan, Italy, via a virtual reality experience in partnership with Sony PlayStation.

This year’s UEFA Champions League Final will have a Spanish flavor, as Real Madrid and Atletico will meet on San Siro Stadium on May 28.
