 Guan Xuan! Kobe is the global ambassador of Basketball World Cup.


In 20 years of brilliant career, Bryant won five NBA Championships for the Los Angeles Lakers and two Olympic gold medals for the U.S. national team. He is one of the best basketball players in history and one of the greatest athletes in the world. Kobe Bryant is unparalleled in China, where he is the most popular NBA player in social media with 6.84 million fans.

Kobe Bryant will join Yao Ming to become the worlds top basketball tournament - the 2009 FIBA World Cup global ambassador.

Growing up in Italy and visiting China several times have made me feel the international influence of basketball, especially the positive impact it has on young people. I am grateful for basketball, Bryant said. It is a great honor for me to be invited to serve as the global ambassador for the 2019 FIBA World Cup. And I hope my involvement will inspire the best players in 32 teams to represent their countries on the highest stage in the world. I am looking forward to the team that will win the world cup.

The president of the FIBA, Theo, Kobe, also welcomed the entry of Kobe.

Kobe is a basketball and sports legend, and we are very excited and honored to be able to contribute to the World Cup with him, he said. This shows the special status of the World Cup, the flagship event of the International Basketball Federation. There will be a record 32 national teams participating in the World Cup, and the qualifying matches currently underway will be equally fantastic. I believe next years basketball World Cup will be the most unique and attractive sports event in 2019.

Kobe has represented the US team several times in the battle field, and has made great achievements. So its only fitting that he will be the ambassador for the most competitive basketball World Cup ever. Before announcing Kobe Bryant as a global ambassador, we have witnessed a series of impressive World Cup-related events, including the announcement of Yao Ming as the first global ambassador, the appearance of the World Cup logo and mascot, the fierce World Cup preliminaries and the one-year countdown to the World Cup and eight host cities. The Tissot countdown clock was released. We will witness more events and milestones before the opening of the World Cup on August 31, 2009, including the World Cup Trophy Tour and the draw of the World Cup tournament in Shenzhen on March 16, 2019.
