The figure of Johan Cruyff will be remembered at a unique event that will bring together, at the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam, leading personalities from the world of sport and representatives of The World of Johan Cruyff network. The Cruyff Legacy Summit, which will be inaugurated by His Majesty King Willem Alexander, is organized by Johan Cruyff Institute and the Johan Cruyff Foundation to pay tribute to the life and work of its founder in the year in which Johan would have turned 75 and the Johan Cruyff Foundation celebrates its 25th anniversary.
The social legacy of Johan Cruyff, the man who revolutionized the beautiful game and created an impact and a school for his way of being, thinking, acting and transmitting in different spheres of society, has proven to be eternal. His imaginative mind, capable of seeing far beyond the purely obvious, his innovative character, always ahead of his time, his ability to seduce the masses on and off the field, and his mentality that led him to demonstrate that, by taking care of the details, anything is possible, continue to this day to be a source of inspiration for millions of people.
The Cruyff Legacy Summit will feature the participation of prominent personalities from the world of sport who saw and continue to recognize in Johan, not only a reference but also a role model for future generations. Most of the different sessions will be streamed live and will be inspired by Johan’s way of seeing sport and society, with special emphasis on three pillars on which the management of the sport of the future is projected: sustainability, leadership and inclusiveness.
