FIFPro celebrated the presentation of the 2011 FIFA FIFPro World XI with a special meet and greet with players from this year’s elite team. Special guest at this event was the winner of the FIFPro Facebook competition, Sebastián Yalle Vázques.


FIFPro had invited thirteen-year old Sebastián and his father Walter to travel from Peru to Switzerland, to attend the FIFA Ballon d’Or Gala.


During a special meet and greet hours before the gala would commence, Sebastián shook hands with all players from the FIFA FIFPro World XI that were present in Zurich. Unfortunately, four players from Real Madrid had to cancel their attendance, due to a match in the Spanish cup tournament.


FIFPro board members and representatives welcomed the following players from the FIFPro World XI: Daniel Alves, Andrés Iniesta, Lionel Messi, Gerard Piqué, Wayne Rooney, Nemanja Vidic and Xavi. There were some other guests as well, amongst them Alex Ferguson, manager of Manchester United, and Neymar, the Brazilian international from Santos FC.
