FIFA President Infantino Pelé wants to honor this idea

To honor the late football legend Pelé († 82), 211 countries are to become active. Fifa President Gianni Infantino makes a corresponding proposal.


Gianni Infantino proposes that all 211 member countries of Fifa name a stadium after Pelé.

Fifa President Gianni Infantino expresses a curious idea that is probably difficult to implement: “We are asking all our member associations to name a stadium in the country after Pele.” World football’s governing body is asking all 211 member countries to pay tribute to the late football legend.

“The children, the coming generations around the world, need to know who Pelé was. And if in 30, 50, 100 years they score a goal in a stadium named after Pelé and ask who he was, we can say: He was the greatest and he moved us,” Infantino said at Pelé’s wake in the port city of Santos near São Paulo.
