With the football community standing together and staying at home to contain the spread of COVID-19, FIFA is sparing no efforts to keep bringing the beautiful game closer to fans around the world.

Following the launch of the #WorldCupAtHome campaign last week, FIFA is today kicking off another initiative with this intention: #LegendTakeover live chats on FIFA’s social media platforms.

Over the course of the coming weeks, a slate of football stars will be invited to take the helm of FIFA’s social media accounts and answer questions from fans. The first guest was Brazilian goalkeeping great Júlio César, who took over the @FIFAcom Twitter account on 26 March.

On Tuesday, 31 March, the FIFA Women’s World Cup™ Instagram account was in the hands of two-time world champion and two-time FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year/The Best FIFA Women’s Player of the Year Carli Lloyd.

Kaká took part in a #LegendTakeover on the FIFA World Cup™ Instagram account on Thursday 2 April and he will be followed Yaya Toure and Fabio Cannavaro. Follow FIFA’s social media platforms to keep up to speed with the many more live chats that will be announced.
