Ronaldhino spoke on the deal in an interview with ESPN: "The R10 team is actually my second project in esports. In 2018, we created the eLigaSul to start in the world of e-football: We wanted to become a strong organization both in the FIFA environment and in Pro Evolution Soccer. I am very happy because I can proudly say that we have achieved it: with eLigaSul, we are PES world champions! The R10 team, dedicated to FIFA, is a logical next step in this process. We hope you have the same success!"
eLigaSul launched in October 2018 as a Pro Evolution Soccer league to host competitions across 26 countries. In the PES League 2019 CO-OP World Finals held at Arsenal FC's Emirates Stadium, eLigaSul Stars emerged the victors. It was the 3v3 leg of the tournament which took place on June 29, with eLigaSul Stars winning the $75,000 prize for first place.
