Real Madrid Star Cristiano Ronaldo to Kick Off the World Cup in Hong Kong


May 20, 2014 - Hong Kong, China

One of the most influential players in sports today, Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo is ready to tackle his way through football grounds before arriving at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong today. With one more month to go until the World Cup, and with the completion of the revamp of 'The Champions' zone at the Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, Cristiano Ronaldo will be kicking off the 2014 World Cup fever with football fans and fellow 'Champions'.

With his passion for football, immense physical strength and lightning speed, Cristiano Ronaldo is a player with great talent. He started his career in 2001 and quickly came to the attention of Sir Alex Ferguson where he eventually signed with Manchester United in 2003. Now, the first ever Portuguese footballer to have won the FIFA Ballon d'Or award twice plays as a forward for Real Madrid in Spain and captains the Portugal national team in a bid to win the championship title in the World Cup.

'With the 2014 FIFA World Cup coming up soon, we are honored to welcome Ronaldo as our second football star to be part of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong. In conjunction with the upcoming big event, we are excited to unveil our revamped 'The Champions" area, where fans can now meet with their favorite sports heroes through an extended new setting,' says Kelly Mak, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Hong Kong.

To celebrate the occasion, guests who visit the attraction wearing a number '7' football jersey starting today until July 13, 2014, will enjoy a 25% discount on their regular-priced admission ticket* and also a 7% discount on all Madame Tussauds Hong Kong branded souvenirs.

Cristiano Ronaldo will take up permanent residence at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong in the newly renovated 'The Champions' area, joining other sports stars such as David Beckham and Maria Sharapova.
