The former Montreal Impact striker was to make an appearance at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM) to represent the Didier Drogba Foundation at this event, which will see the participation of Ivorian students for the first time.
He will still provide encouragement to young students in fifth and sixth grade in virtual mode, said UQAM communications advisor Frédérique Tremblay-Ouellet.
Drogba was also scheduled to attend the Paul Gérin-Lajoie Foundation gala on Wednesday. Coincidence or not, the unveiling of the new CF Montreal logo is scheduled for next Friday.
