Danone's Zinedine Zidane to visit Indonesia in July

Former France international Zinedine Zidane is scheduled to visit Indonesia in July in his capacity as an ambassador of the Danone Nations Cup, an annual football festival for children 10-12 years old. According to Danone's Aqua Brand Director, Didi Nugrahadi, Indonesia will be represented by players drawn from trials in eight of the country's provinces, Jakarta, (DKI) Medan (North Sumatra) , Bandung (West Java), Semarang (Central Java), and Jayapura (Papua), from 14-15 April. The DNC national competition's final will take place in Jakarta from 12-13 May.

"The planned visit of Zidane to Indonesia hopefully could encourage the Indonesian children playing in the soccer teams joining the DNC to do their best," Nugrahadi said, as quoted by Antara newsagency.
