It aims to establish a football academy, host amateur and global league matches around the world, develop and operate a betting platform and marketplace.
And also develop digital VR stadiums that will analyse player skills and compile a blockchain database with which to create new teams.
The stadiums will be developed in 300 locations around the world, with facilities planned for countries in Africa, S.E. Asia, and the Middle East over the next three years.
Ronaldinho Soccer Coin
Hoje eu apresento a vocês um grande projeto que estou participando, a Soccer Coin, que trará muitos benefícios para o esporte. Acessem o site https://t.co/jJTySvt5qk pic.twitter.com/uH9QILJ43c— Ronaldinho Gaúcho (@10Ronaldinho) 20 February 2018
The project is called ‘Ronaldinho Soccer Coin’, formerly World Soccer Coin, prior to inking the partnership with the football superstar.
Earlier this year, Ronaldinho tweeted about the project, now entering the ICO phase, to his 18.1 million followers.
Stadiums in the Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand will be operational in 2019 and an eSports tournament will be held in Bangkok in July 2019. All services in terms of betting, enrolling in the academy, or participating in the VR stadium eSports, will be secured by NEO technology.
“Ever since I thought of retiring, I started to think about my life after retirement,” said Ronaldinho of his decision to partner with the project.
“I wish to contribute to the world as much as I can,” he added.
