Brazilian soccer star Neymar Jr. has joined Facebook Gaming with a streaming deal and will stream exclusively on the platform moving forward.
According to Facebook, the 29-year-old will stream multiple times each month and alongside other content creators.
His first official live stream after the deal happened on December 17th, 11 am PT that fans can check out on his official Facebook page.
This major move by Facebook Gaming has certainly put the platform one step ahead in its ongoing competition against other popular services like YouTube or Twitch.
Previously, Neymar has been seen streaming multiple times on Twitch, with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive being one of his favorite titles to stream. For those who don’t know, he is quite good at the game as well.
“We’re excited to welcome Neymar Jr. to Facebook Gaming, where he can connect with his global fans through games,” said William Pimenta, strategic partner manager at Facebook Gaming. “Like football, gaming brings people together across borders and languages. And our global approach to supporting creators is one of the things that makes Facebook Gaming special.”
Neymar Jr. is undoubtedly one of the best soccer players in the world. The star currently plays for French giants Paris Saint-Germain alongside Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappé.
