The Kings League gathered more than 90,000 spectators at the mythical Camp Nou for the season finale which was finally won by Barrio, comfortably beating Annihiladores 3-0. But, beyond the announcement of Neymar’s arrival in the championship that Gerard Piqué and Kun Agüero created by recreating Lionel Messi’s Topo Gigio against Louis Van Gaal, the exceptional note was given by the sovereign. What he said? Is that a large part of the Barcelona stadium sang for the return of La Pulce to the city in the presence of Joan Laporta. Did you take note?
The Kings League is a 7-a-side football competition created by Kosmos, Gerard Piqué’s company, and is broadcast entirely in streaming. The maximum audience for the competition occurred at the end of February, with the presence of Ronaldinho, who gathered 2,120,962 spectators on the aforementioned streaming platform.
A few days ago in Barcelona Kun Agüero’s declarations caused a stir. Is that the close friend of Messi has confessed that if Laporta makes an effort, the return of the Argentine would be possible. Then, on Sunday, the former Independiente and Manchester City got busy in front of a full stadium and emulated the captain of the national team in the match against the Netherlands in Qatar 2022.
And this Sunday the Blaugrana people spoke. “Meeeessi, Meeeessi,” sang the stadium dreaming of the return of the prodigal son.
The first season of the Kings League was full of surprises. From the participation of Agüero and Ronaldinho, to the masked players. In the preview, Piqué arrived at the stadium by helicopter and was part of a cinematic announcement where the news was the arrival of Neymar in the league for next season.
But, in addition to the show, there was a football match in which the team led by Adri Contreras “annihilated” the Annihilators. The team in which the Argentine Nicolás Pareja played up to the quarterfinals had another compatriot in the decisive match, Martín Montovani, the defender who made his first weapons in Kimberley de Mar del Plata. And the man from MDQ was key and scored the third winning goal and was chosen as the MVP of the final.
This is how the first season of the Kings League went, uA different circus with millions of viewers via streaming that can already afford the luxury of filling stadiums. In this case, a Camp Nou stadium which saw a football match and which, when no one expected it, asked Barcelona president Joan Laporta to make the necessary effort to get Lionel Messi back in his place.
