Daniel Sturridge

Active Kids ambassador

Daniel joins us once again as an Active Kids ambassador, fresh from a record-breaking season with Liverpool. The fastest player in Liverpool FC history to score 20 goals and then 50 goals for the club, Daniel also achieved the third best goal per game ratio in the 2015/2016 Premier League.

It was his last minute winning goal for England against Wales at the 2016 UEFA European Championships that was the talking point of a game watched by 9.5 million viewers.

Daniel’s equalising goal against Italy in the 2014 World Cup was the UK’s third most tweeted about moment of 2014, which is part of the reason we’re delighted to have the much talked about, and hugely respected role model representing Active Kids in 2017.

‘Encouraging children to be active and enjoy sport is a real passion of mine. I remember the launch of Active Kids in my school and the difference it made to our PE lessons and look forward to seeing even more children benefit from it.’
