Booking.com, the global leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, on Wednesday announced world-renowned footballer Thierry Henry as the company’s official ambassador for the 2016 Summer of Sport.
“My love of football opened up the world to me,” comments Henry.
“I followed my passion to every corner of the globe and was lucky enough to spend time in destinations I only dreamed of visiting as a kid. That’s the real power of following where your heart leads you. The unusual places I’ve stayed, the amazing people I’ve met, the incredible food that I’ve eaten—these are all experiences that have changed my life and memories that I’ll cherish forever. It’s exciting to partner with Booking.com and to share this message with the world.”
“We are so thrilled to be working with Thierry,” said Pepijn Rijvers, Chief Marketing Officer at Booking.com.
“Like sport, travel has a special power to transform lives. We want to spark people’s imagination with possibilities they might not have considered before and Thierry is the perfect person to help us amplify and deliver on that mission. Especially this summer with the buzz around such inclusive and captivating sporting events, there are so many once-in-a-lifetime experiences just waiting to be had. Whatever you’re interested in, pursue it, travel for it—the world is yours to discover.”
