      The Juventus goalkeeper was awarded this important position during a ceremony held today in Turin

      An important and prestigious assignment. Gianluigi Buffon, today, was officially named Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations World Food Program (WFP), the main humanitarian organization and agency of the United Nations, committed to saving and changing lives by providing food assistance to about 90 million people affected from conflicts and natural disasters.

      The Juventus goalkeeper will have the opportunity to travel in some of the 83 countries where WFP helps communities in difficulty, also involving people through its social media with the aim of reaching the goal of Fame Zero by 2030 together. He arrived in the afternoon at the Allegroitalia Golden Palace in Turin, where the President of Juventus Andrea Agnelli was present in the room, while Dominik Heinrich (Innovation WFP Director) and Marina Catena (WFP Director for Goodwill Ambassadors and Celebrities) took the stage too. "I have known of this organization since 2003," Buffon said. "Because in a Serie A match in Udine we went onto the field with a shirt with the WFP symbol. I am proud to have become an ambassador, when I was offered itI immediately accepted this challenge. In the future I'll cut out some space to go and lend a hand on the field."

      "THE SEASON IS GOING VERY GOOD"

      On the sidelines of the investiture, the No. 77 of Juventus spoke about the current status of the team. "This season is going very well. I am happy for the harmony that I am experiencing with everyone, for the respect of my comrades and for having re-embraced my fans and my leaders. The number one rival in Italy is Inter, it's a team with top-level players. Sarri? He is a person who has very clear ideas with a thirty years of coaching behind him. He has many beliefs that he manages to transfer to the team. This is a philosophy of football that we had never known and we like."
