Patron of the association 1000 Smiles, Fabrice Abriel is currently passing through Reunion Island. Reunion Island Tourism (IRT) gave him a diploma naming him an Ambassador of Reunion Island. The professional footballer of Reunion Island origin, evolving today to OGC Nice in Ligue 1, was proud to be presented with this honorary title.
Combining 1000 Smiles aims to sponsor children of modest origins to allow them to travel to metropolitan France and meet players from national football clubs and live a real dream for these young lovers of football. It is in this context that Fabrice Abriel recalled: “Beyond the smile, there is a prospect for the future; it is hoped to see youngsters knocking on the door of the national clubs.”
Today, as Fabrice Abriel was named Ambassador of Reunion Island by the IRT, the midfielder was delighted and honored to receive this award and recalled that “The meeting, as it is by its name, is still a force. It is one of the most cosmopolitan countries.” Fabrice is committed to love and adopt Reunion Island and visit whenever he can.
