The former American footballer Mia Hamm is the new ambassador to the World of the Fundació FC Barcelona and the Catalan club, although the campaign will focus on the United States, where she is one of the most recognizable athletes, so Barcelona will have the right to use the image of Hamm to promote the club.
Hamm, three time Olympic medalist with the U.S. selection (Gold in Atlanta and Athens and Silver in Sydney), was also world champion in 1991 and 1999, besides getting two third place finishes in the Women’s World Cups in 1995 and 2003. She made her debut at the tender age of 15, and her long and successful career made her the myth she is today .

The fusion was  revealed since last Thursday, but Mia was going to be presented to the Spain Media on Friday where Jose Guardiola welcomed her with the Barcelona Jersey with Mia’s name on it as you probably have seen in many photos going around the world.

Mia also took the chance when she arrived at the facilities of the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper and greeted the first female soccer team players and their coach, Jose Guardiola

The new ambassador of the Catalan club is a founder of the ‘Mia Foundation’ which helps patients needing marrow transplants and other points, since her brother died in 1996 because of a bone marrow disease.

Since 1994, the Fundació FC Barcelona has been a wellspring of civic participation by numerous social, cultural and sporting clubs, and that they reflect an advanced society that has been in the club and the Foundation, the perfect  source to promote them.
In the first stage of the Foundation members and supporters of Barca offered, individually, their unconditional support, as promoters of this entity, with contributions that were complemented by contributions from major companies in the country, built on the foundation as members of honor, members and staff members protectors.

Enhanced efforts to combat extreme poverty and diseases affecting mainly the planet’s most vulnerable children, and for universal education and gender equality as stated in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
