Scotland and Liverpool star Andy Robertson has been announced as an ambassador for Street Soccer Scotland.
Robertson has enjoyed a great start to the season on both domestic and international fronts. He is playing some of his best football for Liverpool whilst also helping Scotland to a Euro 2020 play-off final.
The left-back is no stranger to using his platform for good. In recent times, he has been heavily involved in foodbank projects both north and south of the border.
Linking up with Street Soccer Scotland is his latest move. The charity work across Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow, using the power of football to help people make positive changes in their life.
One notable ambassador is Sir Alex Ferguson, the legendary Scottish manager. The Liverpool and Scotland man is following in his footsteps as he explains why he’s taken this role onboard.
“The positive influence football has on many of our lives should not be underestimated, especially during these difficult times,” said Robertson. “I’ve seen first-hand the amazing work that Street Soccer Scotland is doing to help those in need.
“It’s an honour to be an ambassador for an incredible charity that is playing a significant role in not only my hometown of Glasgow but across the whole country. Whether you’re struggling financially or battling with your mental health or an addiction, it’s so important to know there is help out there.
“I hope to shine a light on the vital services that Street Soccer Scotland is doing to help people day in, day out, and help as many people as I can through the power of football.”

“He’s always looking for ways to get involved in the community and give back to those who need it the most, so it’s brilliant to officially have him on board in an ambassador role.”
