“Kun” Aguero was the founder of KRÜ Esports a year before he began suffering from a heart condition that caused him to retire from professional football while still playing for Barcelona.

Currently, KRÜ Esports only has teams participating in VALORANT (shooting game) and Rocket League (soccer game). However, it is possible that Messi’s appearance and his significant amount of money will help this organization have more teams participating in LoL, CS2 and other electronic sports.

KRÜ Esports participated in both VCT Americas League, VALORANT Champions and Rocket League World Championship this year 2023. In all these tournaments, “Kun” Aguero was present and supported his team enthusiastically.

“Kun” Aguero is always considered “The best football player in history” and a great friend of Leo Messi. Aguero also mentioned that KRÜ Esports was the place that helped him rediscover the great values ​​of resilience, perseverance and humility.

Aguero “posted” an announcement about Messi

While Aguero had to retire from professional football due to health problems, Leo Messi also neared the end of his career. At the age of 36, Messi is currently playing for Inter Miami in the American Professional League (MLS).

Since Messi came to MLS, in addition to being a player, he is also a character that attracts many fans to Inter MIami in particular and MLS in general. After signing Messi, MLS has grown in many aspects and is now one of the top leagues in the world.

Now, KRÜ Esports hopes that Messi will also have a significant impact to increase the popularity of this brand in the Americas in particular and the world in general.

It is known that Messi is not the only star participating in the field of e-sports in the world. Previously, Gerard Pique together with Ibai Llanos founded KOI (Spain) in December 2021; Defender Van Dijk invested in Tundra Esports, a strong Dota 2 team in the UK; Jesse Lingard with JLINGZ Esports and David Beckham with Guild Esports.
