Brazilian football player Neymar Junior has become the latest world-class athlete to join the PokerStars team having been appointed the brand ambassador. The famous online gaming operator announced the news at an event in Barcelona, where media crews gathered to witness another important step in the company’s plans to establish a global presence. Neymar Jr is expected to help PokerStars increase its coverage in Latin America, where the football player has an iconic status, especially in his native country of Brazil. The Barcelona forward has thus joined an exclusive selection of athletes that already promote the brand, including compatriot Ronaldo Nazario da Lima, tennis champion Rafael Nadal and Olympic gold winner Fatima Moreira de Melo. “Neymar Jr is a young and extremely charismatic megastar who loves interacting with fans on social media, is comfortable on camera and loves the game of poker,” Amaya CEO David Baazov said. “And as a superstar with one of the world’s most famous football clubs and football nations, his appeal is global. This partnership is a great opportunity to market the game of poker across the globe and attract new fans.” Neymar to Take Part in Live and Online Events Under the terms of the agreement, Neymar will take time from his busy schedule to attend PokerStars live and online poker tournaments and you can find him playing online poker under the name neymar-jr. The famous footballer is also an avid poker fan and he often plays the game with his Barcelona teammates on the travels or at his home with friends. The Brazilian will now get even more involved in the game of poker, and he will also take part in the brand’s charity program called Helping Hands. It is important that 12th season of the famed PokerStars European Poker Tour will take place his August in Barcelona and we can definitely expect Neymar Jr to meet some of the high-profile players and even play a couple of hands during the event. About Neymar Junior Neymar Jr is already regarded as one of Brazil’s best ever football players and has been compared to the Seleccao legend Pele on numerous occasions. Despite his fragile age, the 23-year-old has already scored 43 goals in 62 appearances for the Brazil national team and has been an important member of the squad since 2010. After enjoying a bright start to his professional career at Santos, Neymar made a much publicised switch to Barcelona in 2013, with the entire transfer reportedly costing around €100 million. Together with Leo Messi and Luis Suarez, the highly rated forward has been the part of one of Barca’s most successful attacking tridents in history that have already scored 112 goals between them this season.
