Special Guest

Ronaldinho is a Brazilian football icon who in his peak was regarded as one of the world’s best players. The attacking midfielder won the FIFA World Cup in 2002 with Brazil and also won the Copa America and Confederations Cup with his national side. He represented some of the biggest clubs in the world during his career, including CR Flamengo, Paris Saint Germain FC, FC Barcelona and AC Milan. He won the UEFA Champions League with FC Barcelona in 2006 and will now take part in a series of worldwide teqball events, to raise its profile and encourage more people to take up the sport.

 “I’ve been playing teqball for a long time, I love the technical aspect of it and how it helps to improve your football skills,” he said. “I’m looking forward to working with teqball to help grow interest in the sport and hope it’s soon included in the Olympics because then I might have the chance to become an Olympic champion.”

Recently, at the world’s largest technology conference, at Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal, Ronaldinho showcased the new FITEQ mobile application SQILLER, which allows players to develop their skills using a smart device and a football.
