Footballing royalty will be in the capital this weekend. Edson Arantes do Nascimento, better known as Pelé, is in London to lend support to his country, Brazil, on their quest to win the only trophy that has eluded them in their rich and unrivaled football history: Olympic gold.
The most famous footballer in history, who scored 77 goals in 92 games for the seleção, will be at Wembley to cheer on the samba boys against Mexico. But before he reaches the famous stadium he will be dropping into Soccer Scene, at its Carnaby Street store.
For an hour from 1pm on Saturday ‘The King’ (O Rei) will be signing autographs and meeting fans.
August 11, 1pm-2pm
56 Carnaby Street, W1F 9QF
