What a way to start the year – new and full of IMPACT! Say hello to former professional soccer defender and commentator Marcelo Balboa as he represents the company as an official Zurvita endorser!
“We’re thrilled to welcome Marcelo into the Zurvita family. He’s a true talent and legend within the soccer world as a Hall of Famer and commentator who has made a big impact in his community. His passion for health, fitness and the youth – as a head soccer coach and mentor –speaks to our core values as a company and brand,” said Mike Vaught, vice president of leadership development at Zurvita.
As a member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame and the Colorado Hall of Fame, Marcelo joins Zurvita from a highly successful professional soccer and broadcasting career. The two-time All-American played defender in three World Cups with the U.S. National Team while playing professionally in Mexico and the U.S. with the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer (MLS).
Named the U.S. Soccer Athlete of the Year in 1992 and 1994, he retired shortly after in 2002 to embark on a professional broadcasting career. Since 2003, he has worked as a reporter, announcer, commentator and soccer analyst for ESPN and ABC and MLS games on HDNet and Altitude, as well as FIFA World Cup games on Univision.
When he’s not broadcasting, he sits as the head coach of a local youth soccer team in Colorado – giving back to his community through mentorship and athletic development.
