Attendees at the Acronis Global Cyber Summit in Miami Beach, Florida had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play in a match with the legendary Gilberto.
Acronis, our official data backup partner, invited the former Invincibles midfielder as a guest of honour to the event, which is committed to improving cyber protection around the world.
Gilberto participated in the Acronis Cyber Cup, coaching the two teams during a friendly game. His passion, dedication and tactical knowledge were clear to see, and the fans certainly relished the opportunity to be on the same pitch as him.
At the closing ceremony, the World Cup winner delivered a powerful speech on the importance of sports in today’s society, before spending the evening mingling with guests, signing autographs and posing for pictures.
Gilberto also encouraged attendees to donate to the Acronis Cyber Foundation, which supports multiple initiatives designed to stimulate education to gain and protect knowledge. That evening, attendees raised funds to finance the construction of a new, desperately-needed school in Nicaragua.
Whether it was creating special memories for fans, teaching the importance of cyber protection, or even chipping in for a good cause, Gilberto brought excitement and passion at every appearance he made during the Acronis Global Cyber Summit.
