THE FIFA FAN AWARD: SILVIA GREGGO
Greggo is certainly a deserving winner of the award. Her son Nikollas is autistic and is blind, but she doesn’t let that stop him, or them, enjoying football together.
They go to matches together, where they support their favorite club, Palmeiras. While there, she provides special match commentary for her son as they experience the games together.
Speaking to FIFA.com before the awards, Greggo explained: “I’ll describe the details of the environment, the characteristics of each player. Narrating the goal is the most exciting part, I have no doubt about that.
“At the stadium is complete freedom, he is transformed. He feels at ease, stands up, cheers and jumps. Nikollas becomes another child. I am the eyes of Nikollas.”
