NEW YORK — Jason Sudeikis, award-winning writer, producer, actor and star of Ted Lasso, is joining Abbott and Real Madrid at an event outside the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) today.
Earlier in the day, Abbott and Real Madrid announced a partnership that will support the health and nutrition of children globally; provide nutritional science for Real Madrid’s first men’s, women’s and Academy football teams; and support the Real Madrid Foundation programs.
Outside the NYSE, Sudeikis will step into his “coach” role on a soccer pitch with teens from Real Madrid Foundation’s Social Sports School in New Jersey.
“I’m proud to stand beside Abbott and the Real Madrid Foundation as they continue to push forward together to provide a brighter, healthier future for kids around the world,” said Sudeikis.
“Together with Real Madrid and the foundation, we’re aiming to have a positive impact on the health and nutrition of thousands of children around the world, and ultimately to support them in achieving their potential,” said Melissa Brotz, vice president of global marketing and external affairs at Abbott.
