MANILA, Philippines – Former professional English footballer David Beckham will return to Manila next month to take part in the AIA Philam Life Live Better Expo, a wellness and protection summit at Enderun Tent in Taguig City.

The event, which takes place on October 13, features lifestyle sessions with other Philam Life Brand Ambassadors including Nico Bolzico, Solenn Heusaff, Raymond Gutierrez, and Wil Dasovich.

"We are thrilled to have David Beckham join us and share his daily wellness journey at the Live Better Expo," said Philam Life chief marketing officer Leo Tan.

"His healthy and active lifestyle best exemplifies what our brand promise of living a healthier, longer and better life means. We are happy to have him in Manila and inspire Filipinos to also embrace and bring to life our brand promise," he added.

Beckham previously visited Manila in December 2011, when he and the LA Galaxy played against the Philippine Azkals in a friendly. He scored the first goal in what turned out to be a 6-1 rout for the Galaxy.

As the AIA Global Ambassador, Beckham continues to promote the benefits and importance of living a well-balanced lifestyle.

The Expo will be preceded by a football clinic led by Philam Life 7s Football League Commissioner Anton Del Rosario in tandem with Beckham, who is known for his range of passing, crossing ability, and bending free-kicks as a right winger.
