Daniel Sturridge is the star of a new bespoke film to showcase the work of streetfootballworld and Street League, featuring words crafted by spoken-word poet Polarbear.
The Chelsea striker visited a Street League Academy at Wandle Recreation Centre in Wandsworth to hand over a cheque for €50,000 on behalf of Hyundai, part of a larger €250,000 donation, to streetfootballworld – the leading network in the field of social change through football – and its UK network member and charity, Street League.
Sturridge, who has been linked with a January transfer to Liverpool, met attendees of the Academy and joined one of their employability sessions.
“I feel very happy that being part of Team Hyundai has let me become closely involved with the streetfootballworld initiative and Street League’s programme in the UK,” said Team Hyundai ambassador Sturridge.
“As well as having great fun with my new training partners, I found it very rewarding to see how football can help engage young people in something that’s giving them new opportunities.”
