Ronaldo de Assís Moreira, greater known as Ronaldinho, is an ex-Brazilian international soccer player – and a single of the most well-known footballers alive. Now he’s hunting to get into a further field completely – that of esports. Ronaldinho is placing with each other his personal esports club, and has the backing of controller manufacturer SCUF to do it.
As reported by our sister internet site The Loadout, the former international football star is the “official brand ambassador” of SCUF Gaming – who apparently want to “inspire the subsequent generation of competitive gamers, replicating the impact the Brazilian had on football in the globe of gaming.” The way to do that? With SCUF controllers, of course – “the most cutting-edge gear offered.”
Ronaldinho is reportedly in the procedure of browsing for the very best talent in the Brazilian esports scene to join his new club, which will be known as ‘R10’. As of but neither Ronaldinho nor SCUF Gaming has revealed specifically what games the club will be competing in – though it is a protected bet to assume it is a football game, such as FIFA 20 or the most current PES.
The announcement is rather light on particulars about the actual esports side, with Ronaldinho’s tweet mainly becoming about SCUF controllers – with the attached video not mentioning esports or the club at all.
To carry out on the pitch, I relied on the very best boots. In the game, I will need a SCUF controller to win.@ScufGaming & @SCUFDunc is the ultimate gaming companion for me 🤙🏽🎮https://t.co/58cE1U4YS0

As The Loadout reminds us, is not the very first footballer to launch an esports brand of their personal. Leicester City’s Premier League winner Christian Fuchs set up his personal esports group in 2018 – with the excellent title of ‘No Fuchs Given’.
Arsenal players Mesut Ozil and Bernd Leno, along with former Netherlands international Ruud Gullit, also have their personal esports clubs.
