Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng has been invited by the United Nations to attend its International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.
His club, AC Milan announced the news on its website Wednesday.
Boateng this month led his teammates off the field to protest racial abuse by opposing fans during an friendly match against fourth-tier Italian club Pro Patria.
The U.N. event, which takes place in Geneva on March 21, has been in place since 1966. This year's focus is on racism in sport.
