Nate Nanzer, Head of Partnerships at Epic Games said that “Neymar is an icon in the sport, one of the greatest players to ever live. When he’s not training or on the pitch, he’s playing video games. I hope that partnerships like this go a long way toward breaking down stereotypes and misconceptions about who gamers are or gaming as an activity.”
