AS Monaco star Caio Henrique delights young fans with appearance at Christmas Village

The AS Monaco Kids Tour stopped off at the Principality’s Christmas Village in Port Hercule over the weekend to offer a day of games, prizes and a meet-and-greet with Brazilian international Caio Henrique.  

Almost 150 children turned out on Saturday 16th December to meet the popular defender, who posed for pictures and signed autographs as part of the AS Monaco Kids Tour appearance in the Christmas Village.  

“It’s important to share moments like this with the children of Monaco and the surrounding area,” he said. “They are our supporters of tomorrow, the ones who will come to support us at the Stade Louis II, and we need to be close to them. It’s a real pleasure to be here today, especially in this magnificent setting with the Christmas Village right next door.”

Those young fans were given the chance to win a raft of exciting prizes, from a signed jersey to match tickets for upcoming games featuring the Monaco side, and AS Monaco mascot Bouba was also in attendance at the event, but with an extra special festive twist to his uniform.  

Engagement and entertainment 

The AS Monaco Kids Tour is now in its second year. Since September, the initiative has visited 14 locations and venues in three countries and reached more than 1,300 children. Numerous players from the main team and the Academy have taken part, such as goalkeeper Philipp Köhn and defender Vanderson de Oliveira Campos.
