In a surprising announcement, football legend Messi has joined KRÜ Esports as a co-owner. This move adds another major name from the traditional sporting world to the team. Messi will take an active role in the organization after buying into it.
KRÜ Esports, which was formed in 2010, is primarily focused on Valorant esports and is currently owned by Sergio Agüero. However, with Messi coming on board as a co-owner, the team now boasts ownership by two of the biggest icons in the history of sports.
This development comes after speculation about the ownership of KRÜ Esports, with rumors suggesting that Sergio Agüero would be taking a less active role. However, the addition of Messi as a co-owner confirms that the team is strengthening its leadership.
As one of the leading esports organizations in Argentina, KRÜ is well-positioned for Messi's involvement, especially considering their successful Valorant squad. While other organizations also have traditional sports stars on their boards, the co-ownership of KRÜ by Messi and Sergio Agüero undoubtedly raises its profile.
For Messi, this move into esports represents a new chapter in his career, as he helps build an organization in a rapidly growing area of sport. With both Messi and Sergio Agüero at the helm, we can expect great things from the new KRÜ Esports.
