GLAM FOOT, a successful first edition
The first edition of GLAM FOOT took place in Monaco on Tuesday 27 June.
As expected, the four announced teams turned out in force, each keen to win the trophy designed by the artist (ACIDE ART).
Set in the heart of the Espace-Saint-Antoine, the tournament brought together a variety of sporting and charitable challenges.
During the off-season, players such as Tiémoué Bakayoko and Éric Bailly (both with JPK HEALTHCARE) took the opportunity to treat the spectators. A technical demonstration, always in good humour.
Rolling, dribbling, fast-paced action, a festival of goals… everything came together to make this first instalment of « GLAM FOOT » a success.
In addition to the light-hearted, friendly atmosphere, the participants showed themselves to be committed and concerned about the causes they were defending.
Despite an injury sustained at the end of the season, Anthony Martial was obviously on hand to sponsor the event, of which he is one of the main instigators.
As Honorary President of the GLAM FOOT association, he was on hand to support his team’s representatives throughout the afternoon.
The Barbagiuans and their president Louis Ducruet were equally committed. As determined as ever, Prince Albert II’s nephew did not spare any effort, just like his team-mates.
Although SISIK does not come from a football background, he did not lose out to a number of professional players. With his key partners in the field of influence, such as Laurent Correia and Emine, SISIK flew the colours of the ‘OR BLEU’ association, of which he is an ambassador. They were joined in the team by ‘El Fenomeno’ Hassan N’DAM, six-time world champion in English boxing.
A close-knit, combative group that gave the best a run for their defending values.
Monegasque boxer Hugo Micallef was keen to support the event, as he was present on the sidelines to show his support for the Principality’s charity work.

Anthony Martial: « I’m really happy with this first edition, which was friendly and family-oriented. What’s more, my team won, so I’m delighted! I can’t wait to come back next year and see this great event continue to grow. »
Louis Ducruet: « I’m delighted with the commitment shown by all the participants. This GLAM FOOT is a success and I have the feeling that everyone enjoyed being together. This concept has great potential and should certainly be revived next year, at a date that will make it easier to attract a large audience. »
A first edition that calls for others…
