I enjoyed and loved playing in India last year and entertaining the audience. I love the food and warmth of the Indian people. Futsal has been an important part of my life ever since I started indulging in the sport as a young kid. Premier Futsal has quickly become the biggest futsal event in the world and I am here to support this league in the long term, and make it a huge success globally. Now with Season 2 of the tournament, we want to break the glass ceiling and set the benchmark for sporting leagues across the world. We want to inspire more and more youngsters to take up the sport and all of our efforts especially the Launch Pad are directed towards bringing in youth closer to the game" - Ronaldinho
