FIFA To Ask Every Country In The World To Name Stadium In Honour Of Pelé

FIFA will ask every country in the world to name a stadium in honour of Pelé.

That’s according to its president Gianni Infantino who was attending the football star’s funeral today.

The organisation boss said every country will be asked by the group to name one of their football stadiums with the name of Pelé.

There were plans to name the Maracana stadium in Rio after Pelé in 2021, however this was halted by the state governor at the time.

The sportsman’s coffin is being displayed at his home club, Santos, at the Vila Belmiro stadium for 24 hours today before a private burial on Tuesday.
