LONDON – Nov 7, 2013: Some of football’s finest players – including a World Cup Final goal-scorer – visited Fiat UK’s flagship dealer Motor Village Marylebone this week to help raise money for charity.

Italian legends Gianfranco Zola and Marco Tardelli – who scored for Italy in the 1982 World Cup showdown with West Germany – joined former AC Milan, Watford and England star Luther Blissett, ex-Wolverhampton Wanderers striker George Ndah and current Watford forward Troy Deeney for the launch of this year’s ‘Movember’ moustache campaign for Prostate Cancer.

Event organiser Luther Blissett chose Fiat’s Motor Village Marylebone to hold the fund-raiser (Monday, 4 November) because of its central London position and unique design and space. Situated just off Oxford Street, on Portman Square, the showroom was originally created in 2008 with exhibitions and receptions in mind as well as the ability to showcase and sell cars.

“It is the perfect place for an event like this one,” says Luther, who won 14 caps for England. “I’m doing my bit to raise awareness of prostate cancer and I’m delighted that the team at Motor Village Marylebone was able to help us.”

“We have once again hosted and supported an important social gathering for this worthy cause at Motor Village Marylebone, and I’m delighted the showroom continues to attract these types of events,” says Tony Dittli, managing director, Motor Village UK. “We were again able to combine a first class reception with our unique showroom environment which features, of course, Fiat Group cars.”
