On the sidelines of the forum, a match of integrity was held at Morumbi Stadium in Sao Paulo, the second largest sports stadium in Brazil, with the participation of football legends led by Brazilian Ronaldo, along with other Brazilian and Congolese footballers.
Strikingly, the match witnessed Brazilian female footballers, alongside several prominent figures in the sponsoring company.
