Messi has achieved a lot in football, so now he seems to be getting involved in the world of gaming. We’ve seen other famous people like Neymar and Formula 1 drivers take part in Esports events, which has made those games even more popular.
Lionel Messi is a very famous athlete from Argentina who has had a successful career in football for almost 19 years. He has won many awards and titles in football, and now he’s also getting into the world of digital gaming.
What is KRU Esports?
Kru Esports is a gaming team from Argentina that was created by Sergio Agüero, who is a famous soccer player. They started the team in 2020 when many sports couldn’t be played due to COVID-19. Sergio Agüero also streamed his gaming on Twitch.
They began with playing FIFA because Agüero loves soccer, but later they tried other games like League of Legends and VALORANT. In VALORANT, they did really well and got a good position in a big tournament in 2021.
Now, they have a team that plays Rocket League, and they also have both male and female teams in VALORANT.
Messi joining KRU will likely bring more attention to Esports, and more people around the world might start following KRU and Esports in general. This could lead to more support for KRU and the Esports community.
