Golden Foot - Layer
Under the high patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco

“I feel incredibly privileged for Monaco to have the “Promenade des Champions”. It is a unique feature, not only in the Principality, but probably in the world. It has welcomed so many champions over the years, including mythical figures of football like Pele and Maradona, and I can name many others. The “Golden Monaco Awards” is a wonderful occasion to celebrate all these great champions and I am very proud the Principality is home to the “Promenade of Champions”.

“I always hoped that my most talented players would be remembered not just in books and encyclopaedias, which with today’s advanced technology, are disappearing. That’s why I wanted to create something which would remain in the legend of football, and I thought of putting, in a unique place in Monaco, the moulds of the footprints of all the greatest champions of the world and the history of football”.
