Ronaldo de Assís Moreira, better known as Ronaldinho, is an ex-Brazilian international soccer player – and one of the most popular footballers alive. Now he’s looking to get into another field entirely – that of esports. Ronaldinho is putting together his own esports club, and has the backing of controller manufacturer SCUF to do it.

As reported by our sister site The Loadout, the former international football star is the “official brand ambassador” of SCUF Gaming – who apparently want to “inspire the next generation of competitive gamers, replicating the effect the Brazilian had on football in the world of gaming.” The way to do that? With SCUF controllers, of course – “the most cutting-edge equipment available.”

Ronaldinho is reportedly in the process of searching for the best talent in the Brazilian esports scene to join his new club, which will be called ‘R10’. As of yet neither Ronaldinho nor SCUF Gaming has revealed exactly what games the club will be competing in – although it’s a safe bet to assume it’s a football game, such as FIFA 20 or the latest PES.
