In a Camp Nou packed with over 90,000 spectators, the Kings League had a spectacular finale with its Final Four. The twist came when Gerard Piqué appeared tied up in a video: someone had kidnapped him and was demanding a ransom.
There Kings League Of Gerard Pique and his friend Ibai Llanos was a truly crazy success in its first edition: the newborn seven-a-side football competition took advantage of all the opportunities offered by social networks and attracted many fans with its unconventional novelties. Returning from the much talked about separation with Shakira last year and from the farewell to football a few months later, the 36-year-old Piqué couldn’t have started his second life better: top sports entrepreneur and fiancé who is very much in love with his new partner Clara Chia Martì.
Tonight the Kings League reached the Final Four: it was a triumphant catwalk at the Camp Nou. The 92 thousand spectators who filled the stadium of the Barcelona, home of Piqué until recently, are a monstrous fact that testifies to the hype that has surrounded the tournament. It is the dream come true of the former Spanish international defender, who has won on and off the pitch with his sports event production company, Kosmos. With the grandstands already full half an hour before the start of the event, the presidents of the 12 teams, including Piqué and Ibai, arrived at Camp Nou in a black helicopter.
The sporting aspect of the story, namely the final four between the top-ranked Kings League, went hand in hand with Super Bowl-style entertainment, with game timeouts being used to insert various musical performances. Piqué took advantage of playing in his home for 15 years to involve former teammates such as David Villa, Kun Aguero and Ronaldinho, as well as the president of Barcelona Joan Laporta has made its appearance.
“The Champions League draw was rigged”: the conspiracy theory is rampant abroad
And just as Laporta was sitting in the presidential box, from the stands of the Camp Nou a cry rose which resembled a prayer towards him: “Messi, Messi, Messi“. Blaugrana fans dream of the return of the adored Argentine – instead mistreated by those of PSG – and try to let Barcelona’s number one know in every way.
In the end it was ‘El Barrio’ by the hugely popular tiktoker Adri Contreras who won the inaugural Kings Leaguebut this is really the least compared to what has moved the competition created by Piqué in recent months and everything that revolves around it, including the very popular streaming appointments after the matches in which we have finished talking about everything, including Shakira and the issue of Casios and Rolexes.
The affair could further expand next year, if the premises are those of which we have seen an anticipation in a video aired shortly before the Final Four. In fact, the big news is that even Neymar will have a team in the next edition of the Kings League, after the Brazilian champion from PSG ‘kidnapped’ Piqué, then revealing himself to him to ask him as a condition for his release precisely the presidency of a team in the competition, which it is no coincidence that the Catalan is planning to bring to Brazil. It goes without saying that Neymar’s participation would be a very powerful key to success there too and it is equally needless to say that Piqué ‘accepted’ the conditions for being released…
