Fans who paid $2,500 to meet Lionel Messi after his charity soccer match were stiffed, as Messi left the game early. They didn’t even meet Messi before the game like they were supposed to. Morever, they didn’t receive the signed Messi jersey they were promised and a lot of the soccer stars who were supposed play in the charity match, didn’t.
However, Messi said he’s going to make it up to these VIP ticket holders. First off, they will get their money back, but Messi said he wants to do something extra special. He plans to invite the 75 VIP ticket holders to Barcelona to watch a match at the Camp Nou. And not only will they attend the match but they will get an inside look at what Messi does before, during and after the match. Here’s a run down of what Messi has planned:
Update: While we joke about Messi not showing up to meet the VIPs, there were some young kids who really were expecting to see him. However, I’m sure a lot of this as to do with the sports agency running the event and not necessarily Messi – who may not have agreed to all they presented to the fans. But again, Messi’s name is on this charity game, so he should make it up to these fans.
