Ms Nikki Ng, Non-Executive Director of Sino Group, said, “we believe that soccer is one of the most popular sports in the world, representing energy and passion. As Make-A-Wish® Hong Kong enters its 25th anniversary year, The Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel, as the event’s exclusive hotel partner, is delighted to share this meaningful opportunity with the children to meet their favourite soccer stars and make their dreams come true. The encouragement by a sports hero is one of the strongest forms of motivation, and we are very grateful to Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Hong Kong’s very own specially abled athletes who were invited to meet the Make-A-Wish children and offered them messages of support.”
Over the years, Make-A-Wish® Hong Kong has been dedicated to creating life-changing wishes come true for children suffering from critical illnesses. The Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel hopes to join hands with international soccer superstars to fill their lives with hope, strength, and happiness. At the event, two soccer-loving wish kids had their wishes come true as they got up close and personal with their idols. Additionally, So Wa Wai, Lee Ho Yung and Kim Mok also had the opportunity to meet and interact closely with their soccer heroes. The iconic presence of soccer superstar Messi, his teammates Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets on the international football stage remains an unforgettable experience for all present. The soccer stars demonstrated exceptional kindness and warmth towards the young fans, with Messi going the extra mile by presenting a signed photograph to one of the wish kids, leaving him immensely thrilled.
The Tatler XFEST Hong Kong is the first international tournament of its kind for Inter Miami CF, and will kick off tomorrow (February 4) at the Hong Kong Stadium with an all-star line-up of players, including eight-time Ballon d’Or winner and Argentina’s World Cup champion Lionel Messi, teammates Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets. As the exclusive hotel partner of the event, The Fullerton Ocean Park Hotel offers a series of exclusive accommodation and dining experiences that sold out quickly. Additionally, the hotel has specially created a themed spot in the hotel lobby for fans from all over the world to join in the fun.
