    RONALDO vs MESSI
    November 26, 2016 at Phi Centre
    5PM : MESSI by Alex de la Iglesia
    7PM : RONALDO by Anthony Wonke

    In collaboration with Carlsberg

    For its upcoming installment, Pitchfest presents a “football” packed double-feature, devoting its latest edition entirely to the art of cinema. As ambassadors of the beautiful game, the festival has decided to honor two of the most lauded football giants in modern history: Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

    Having stepped foot on the same pitch numerous times over, one for Real Madrid and the other for FC Barcelona, these two players maintain similar, interstellar career paths. Recipients of the coveted Ballon d’Or and crowned by FIFA as the world’s best, both Ronaldo and Messi are icons that have managed to reinvigorate the football world through their ground-breaking competitive spirit. Although rivals on the pitch, they share a heightened passion for the game that has gone on to enlighten and inspire football fans all over the world. Off the pitch, these two professional footballers, by different means, have also displayed a greatness that has cemented them as the gold standard of the football world.

    This is why Pitchfest has decided to reunite them on the silver screen by showing both of their biopics: “Messi” by Alex de la Iglesia and “Ronaldo” by Anthony Wonke.
    In the comfort of the Phi Centre on November 26th, the screening of these two documentaries will offer football fans the opportunity to retrace the origins of two of the most memorable careers in soccer history that to this day continue to unfold and dazzle.
