Piotr and Tomek are two Polish boys who have seen their wish come true. To meet Ronaldinho. On Sunday, they were guests of the Club and met the man himself outside the dressing rooms in the Nou Camp.



The 'Make a Wish' Foundation Works to bring happiness to children who are suffering from terminal or irreversible illnesses. Two months ago, it got in touch with the FC Barcelona Foundation and asked if Piotr and Tomek, from Trojmiasto in the north of Poland, could fulfil their dream of meeting Ronaldinho. Finally, on the Saturday before the Getafe game, the two lads arrived in Barcelona and on Sunday were in the Nou Camp to see Barca beat Getafe 2-0, including a goal from their hero Ronaldinho. After the final whistle, the two boys met up with the Brazilian star outside the Nou Camp dressing rooms.

A marvellous experience

It was a thrilling game and the boys were delighted with the atmosphere in the stadium and the performance of their footballing idol. At the end of the match, they were taken into the depths of the stadium right to the very spot where the players come out onto the pitch.

A number of players emerged from the dressing room to greet the two boys, shake their hands and have their photographs taken together, including Valdés, team captain Puyol, Gio, Xavi and Motta. But there was still one very important person missing.



A wish come true

Ronaldinho was one of the last players to leave the dressing rooms but the wait was worth it. The faces of Piotr and Tomek lit up when Ronaldinho made his appearance, wearing his trademark smile as usual. The Brazilian star thanked the boys for their sincere expressions of admiration and brought some precious moments of happiness to two Polish boys who had their wish come true. Piotr and Tomek will also take away with them a photograph with President Joan Laporta and the insignias of the Club.



Experts in fulfilling wishes

The 'Make a Wish' Foundation works to turn wishes into reality for children with terminal or irreversible illnesses. It was created in 1980 and its first act was to allow a boy Chris Greicius- to be a policeman for a day. Over the last 25 years, it has fulfilled the dreams of some 127,000 children from all over the world. Last Sunday, Barca was able to add its little bit to the wonderful work of this organization.
