Lionel Messi joins KRÜ Esports as co-owner

This venture with KRÜ Esports has been Lionel Messi's first foray into the esports industry.

The legendary football player, Lionel Messi has been named the new co-owner of Sergio Kun Agüero’s esports organisation, KRÜ Esports.

The former Manchester City striker formed the company, and this has been the Inter Miami star’s first foray into the esports industry.

The organisation was started by Agüero to fuse real-world and virtual sports. Among other games, KRÜ Esports presently fields teams in League of Legends, Rocket League, and Valorant.

The owner of KRÜ Esports announced the news in a brief video message that was shared on the social media accounts.

Sergio Kun Aguero, CEO of KRÜ Esports, commented, “I am happy to share a club with Leo, of course now in a new stage and with other challenges. It is an honour that you are part of KRÜ. He is the best footballer in history, and also a great friend. His presence is relevant because he projects values such as perseverance, humility and resilience. He is a figure that inspires everyone and will be a great contribution to the scene in general.”

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Agüero started streaming, and his passion for esports has only increased since then. With the addition of the Argentinian to the squad, KRÜ Esports, which was founded in late 2020, will only continue to expand.
