UFL, before the unknown launch date of the video game, has already started the announcement of their game’s global ambassadors. These delegates’ criteria must fit in with the creators’ vision for the game – they put their team, fans, and country first, like Strikerz Inc. puts the players first in their fair-to-play concept.
That said, I’m not so sure Ronaldo fits the bill following his recent media outburst about his current club, Manchester United. However, considering the hype around him and his pull on social media, he will undoubtedly gain the traction needed for the game to succeed globally.
Here Is the Five-Man Roster of Ultimate Football League Ambassadors:
- Oleksandr Zinchenko (Arsenal, Ukraine) – The Ukrainian who made the career move from Manchester City to Arsenal at the start of the regular season was the first pro footballer to join the UFL team as a global ambassador of the game.
- Roberto Firmino (Liverpool & Brazil) – Roberto Firmino, better known as Bobby Firmino by the Anfield faithful, is the second player who joins the team of reps for the groundbreaking football game. Firmino, who will be in-game to help promote UFL to the public, was the first Brazilian footballer to reach 50 goals in the English Premier League.
- Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan & Belgium) – Despite finding life in England difficult and forcing a return to the San Siro to rejoin Inter Milan, Lukaku makes the UFL cut and is named the third ambassador of the video game.
- Kevin de Bruyne (Manchester City & Belgium) – The king and maestro of Manchester City and probably one of the few players who can find water in the desert and send it to Mars with calculated precision. Kevin de Bruyne is the second Belgium player on the list and the fourth player to join as one of the ambassadors.
- Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United & Portugal) – Like the global online mode is UFL’s flagship game mode, Ronaldo will be their poster boy. Hands down their most decorated player and hands down the player who produces a bucket load of sales because of his worldwide image and stardom.
Ronaldo is a serial winner in La Liga, Premier League, and the Champions League. Included with his club and country achievements over his highly decorated football career are six Ballon d’Or awards.
The list of heavy hitters or goal-getters, whichever you prefer, will only grow over time. The last ambassador announcement came back in January with de Bruyne and CR7. Strikerz Inc. has not released any new information except for gameplay leaks.
