ATLANTA, Oct. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Scuf Gaming, innovator and creator of high-performance gaming controllers, is proud to announce its newest official brand ambassador: no less than Brazilian football legend Ronaldinho, one of the greatest, most iconic players of all time.
Ronaldinho rose to fame playing in his homeland thanks to his daring attitude on the pitch: there was no move he wouldn't try, always with a smile. The 'Gaúcho' changed the game thanks to his unlimited creativity and unrivalled ball control, which allowed him to play in the greatest stadiums in the world just as if he was doing so in his backyard. His uplifting attitude encouraged millions of young footballers to try moves that had never been seen before.
Now, Ronaldinho's passion for inspiring the next generations has brought him on a new mission. After creating the eLigaSul, a league that features professional Pro Evolution Soccer teams and hosts competitions across 26 countries, the Brazilian is currently gathering the best rising talent from his homeland to launch his own world-class esports team: R10. Scuf Gaming, who shares Ronaldinho's vision, will proudly support this exceptional initiative by providing the team with the competitive edge they need to succeed: a specially crafted SCUF controller, optimised to the Brazilian's exact specification.
"To perform on the pitch, I relied on the best boots," said Ronaldinho, who, as an elite sportsman himself, perfectly understands how demanding it is to remain at the summit of competition. "In the game, I need a SCUF controller to win," he added.
"Nine years ago, we embarked on a journey to change the way gamers can play by introducing innovative features that allow users to reach their maximum potential," said Duncan Ironmonger, the CEO and founder of SCUF Gaming. "Ronaldinho has been an inspiration to everyone that recognizes greatness, and his skills have impacted football for many generations to come. This partnership with Ronaldinho for his next step into esports is a natural connection to what we both believe in: pushing the limits every day to achieve greater heights."
To celebrate this new partnership, Scuf Gaming will offer all its customers a special 5% promotional discount using the code Ronaldinho. This way, both the Brazilian and Scuf Gaming hope to help all gamers achieve the simple yet tremendously ambitious goal they share: to change the game —forever.
