As per the latest announcement by Krafton, he is all set to captain Global Chicken Cup, an in-game event coming to the game.

The event will feature Football-themed gameplay, and while announcing the Global Chicken Cup, Messi asks PUBG Mobile fans to gear up and join him in the new update.

In addition to this, a Football Carnival-themed area will also be released as a part of the collaboration featuring Middle Eastern architecture, abundant resources, and unique gear. You can also use Zorb Football Vehicle to travel quickly in the carnival. Apart from this, Football Arenas will appear in some areas and will be marked on the map.

You can head to an Arena and score goals with Wonder Footballs to get supplies. Players who score a goal in all Arenas within an area will receive a unique Easter-egg reward. 

Talking about the partnership with PUBG Mobile and video games, Messi stated, "Video games have always been a huge part of my life. I find them incredibly helpful to relax and enjoy myself when I'm not training, and to connect with my teammates, friends, and family. PUBG MOBILE is so much fun, and I am personally amongst its millions of fans all over the world. I am proud of what we've been working on and want to invite all players to join me in PUBG MOBILE."

In addition to this, Vincent Wang, Head of PUBG Mobile Publishing, Tencent Games, said, "Knowing that many of PUBG MOBILE players are big football enthusiasts as it is, we can't wait to champion the sport in-game, as well as spread its joy to new fans."
