FC Barcelona legend Ronaldinho will make his return to playing football on Sunday when debuting in the King’s League. Here’s how, when and where you can see him in action.
Ronaldinho will run out for the Porcinos FC team headed by president and popular streamer Ibai Llanos, who is one of the driving forces behind the King’s League alongside its main organizer Gerard Pique through his Kosmos company.
On Matchday 8, the action starts at 16.00 CET from the Cupra Arena in Barcelona with five games taking place before Porcinos FC meet PIO FC at 21.00 local time.
The games can be watched here free of charge on Twitch. Given that Porcinos FC have already won five matches and lost just one as the joint leaders of the Kings’ League with Saiyans FC, they could notch a routine won over PIO FC (who have won two and lost five) given they now boast Ronaldinho.
