After retirement, many professional athletes embark on a tour to give speeches, meet and greet fans and do their best to
relive their glory days. And they're great. Fans get a chance to get up close and personal with the sports star they spent
x number of years worshipping on television, and the sports stars get to stay connected to their fans and their sport. But
what's even more exciting is the chance to do all that with your favorite sports star that' still in the game, and not just
in the game but at the peak of his professional career. That's what you get when you come to see Lionel Messi. He's the Argentine
soccer phenomenon, and he's coming to Soldier Field in Chicago to give audiences a rare glimpse into the life and mind of
one of the world's greatest footballers. Get your speaking

His family and friends call him Leo, but you may know him as the formidable striker for FC Barcelona and the Argentina
national team. On the field, Lionel Messi is a fierce player, unafraid of going for the ball, but also a mature defenseman,
knowing when to shield and when to strike. Messi plays with the energy of a rookie but the temperament of a seasoned veteran,
and that deft combination has helped make him one of the greatest players in the game.
He's been called the next Deigo Maradona, and for soccer fans, that's quite the prediction. And quite an honor for Lionel
Messi. Messi grew up watching fellow Argentine Maradona dazzle on the field, and to be considered someone who could fill Maradona's
cleats is an immense source of pride as well as encouragement for Messi. He certainly has the skills for it. He's competed
in two World Cups and at the Olympics, representing his native Argentina with pride. But above all, Messi says what pushes
him to excel the most is a split between his determination and the support of his fans. Get your Soldier Field tickets from StubHub to see Lionel Messi live!
In June of 2012, Forbes Magazine ranked Lionel Messi as the 11th highest-paid athlete in the world, and he's
earned every penny, or Euro. In that same year, Messi broke the 39-year record for most goals in a European club season when
he finished the season with 73, and absolutely stunning feat. He also became the first player to score five goals in a Champions
League match. The Barcelona forward is a four-time FIFA Player of the Year, and at age 25, there is still plenty of steam
left in this phenomenal athlete.
He's FC Barcelona's all-time leading scorer and beloved icon. He's a national hero in his native Argentina and loves representing
the light blue and white in international tournaments. He's shattering records left and right. He's recently become a proud
father. And he's barely halfway to 30. With so much soccer left to be played for Lionel Messi, everyone is excited to see
just how far this star will go. A sight to behold on the field, Lionel Messi is equally adept at holding the attention of
a crowd, and his dexterity with words is matched by his agility with a ball. Visit StubHub to get your Lionel Messi theater tickets to see this living legend live in Chicago!
