Football legend Ronaldinho will be arriving in Mumbai this Friday to explore his future with Premier Futsal,  a variant of association football played indoors, according to media reports.

It is expected that the Brazilian footballer will make a Premier Futsal announcement in the city. According to PTI, Ronaldinho said of his upcoming India visit, “My association with Premier Futsal has been a fruitful one. It was a great experience to be in India and play in front of local crowds last year and I look forward to another warm welcome from this sports-loving country.”

Being the world’s largest futsal promotions company, Premier Futsal brings together football legends, futsal superstars and home-grown talent on one platform.

Ronaldinho served as the brand ambassador at the Rio de Janeiro Paralympic Games, for which he had to quit Premier Futsal last year after two games and go to Rio.
