For a couple of years now Pitchfest has brought soccer to fans. Soccer in different formats that is. Film screenings, art exhibits and other great ways to take in soccer are offered. Next up is a film event called Ronaldo vs. Messi.
Even the most lightweight of soccer fans knows the names Ronaldo and Messi. They are the two biggest names in soccer today. Ronaldo plays for Real Madrid and his home nation, Portugal. Messi plays for FC Barcelona and his home nation (maybe), Argentina. There are two films/documentaries being screened at the Phi Centre that will give fans an insider’s viewpoint of the two soccer legends.
