Just like football, World of Tanks isn't always about winning. It's about dedication, raw emotion, and most importantly — teamwork. Whether you’re 15 vs 15 in our game or 11 vs 11 in football (soccer), it’s coordinated team efforts that win battles. And as we celebrate the Italian Tech Tree launch, we’re thrilled to welcome on board our global community the Italy’s football maestro who’s proved to be the man you want to rally the troops: Gianluigi “Gigi” Buffon!
This legendary goalkeeper has won just about every major honour in European and world football, including the prestigious FIFA World Cup. Recognized by many as the greatest goalkeeper of the 21st century, there’s no doubt he’s left his mark on the sport and influenced generations of aspiring professional and amateur players. Now, the player who has given so much joy to football fans is representing his nation in the game.
"Surviving in the world of the brave isn't easy. There’re always new challenges ready to knock you down, but your teammates are here to back you up. And having a few tanks at your command makes life a little easier," Gianluigi Buffon says. "If you think you're up for it, then join me in World of Tanks!"
The renowned goalkeeper was reimagined as a tank commander as part of our partnership. He honored World of Tanks by becoming the ambassador of the Italian tank line and granting his image and voiceover to the Italian Crew.
Roll out Italian style and win with Gigi!
