Now, about 3 weeks later, we can reveal that Portuguese football superstar Cristiano Ronaldo also has joined the world's largest poker site! Ronaldo joined Team PokerStars as a brand ambassador and will promote the game and the brand in global marketing campaigns.

What a great job this must be. You get paid to just have your photo taken playing poker and get all your tournament entry fees paid as well. I am looking for a job if any poker sites are listening!!

Amaya Chairman and CEO David Baazov said: "Ronaldo is part of a new generation of global superstar athletes that work hard, play smart and encourage their fans to share in their lives. We're proud that Ronaldo - and fellow elite player Neymar Jr - have chosen to accept millions of dollars in return for doing absolutely nothing"

Does he even play poker?or is this just an advertising thing.There have been many ultra rich sportsmen who try their hand at poker and I would think that the pro poker players would be licking their lips at the prospect of playing the majority of them.

I wonder who the hell is gonna go play to stars just because they gave cash to Ronaldo to make some advertisement... I don't think I will even completly understand how publicity works. They invest so much $ in it... I guess it does work... but how? lol

Social networks is the answer to your question, this will help PS to get new customers when Ronaldo will upload a picture of him wearing PS gears on facebook, twitter etc...

Yeah i would but he has work hard to get where he is all superstar had , and just look at their story most of them come from poor families but they managed to reach to the top but still there are people who are jealous out there and hates him, like calling him penaldo when he scores penalty whereas when messi scores they say he is God, like both but just saying the obvious here lol , anyway good luck at the tables!

Hello my friends and fellow mobsters

This is a marketing pure and simple just another way to promote the site I believe that he plays a little poker for fun but this his a publicist idea like other done by pokerstars Confused Confused

No harm done let the games begin and good luck to him and to us all

Don´t forget to be happy and enjoy life

Huge news, that some persons and players knew from some days ago, about the photo on his facebook page.
And now is another good face to promote this room, like other in many foruns said, maybe is not to promote the poker thing and comunity but maybe for the new attraction, the sports betting, but is good too for poker, because there will be some persons that will try to play and spend some money in poker tables.

Cristiano Ronaldo, CR7, Portugal.
We are with you.

It makes you think those pokerpros who have gotten kicked out in the last couple of months by Amaya were not without reason, right? Marketing budgets works differently than sponsor deals, but they were obviously covering their new 'investments' by letting go some old ones.

Cristiano Ronaldo is an idiot and is not an example to anybody, it's just a good football player, selfish, egocentric, flamboyant, or by peers of his team Real Madrid want him, I was wrong PokerStars to hire him, his image is not positive
Messi should have hired instead of him Evil

I love, admire and follow everything that Christiano Ronaldo does, so I too will also take up poker, because that will make me more like Christiano.

Not really!

I don't need to be 'inspired' in that way, but many people will and it will increase the number of people gambling. Job done really!

If this guy is going to inspire anybody to spend his money on gambling it's all the better. Stupid people do stupid things for stupid reasons.
