The inauguration of the new Olympique de Saint-Paul stadium on Réunion Island on Saturday May 26th 2012 was also the occasion for the launch of ELA’s Indian Ocean branch. A gala football match was organized between a Reunion Island selection and the France 98 All Star Team led by Zinédine Zidane, ELA’s emblematic patron. The game was kicked off by Mathias, a 15-year-old boy with leukodystrophy, seen here accompanied by Zinédine Zidane and Jackson Richardson, the patron of the Indian Ocean ELA. All receipts from the match were given to ELA.
