Football Legend Ronaldinho Set to Visit Kolkata Ahead of Durga Puja Festival

Kolkata’s football fans are in for a treat as the legendary Brazilian maestro, Ronaldinho, is all set to grace the City of Joy just ahead of the much-awaited Durga Puja Festival.


Ronaldinho, hailed as one of the greatest football players of all time, boasts an unparalleled list of accolades, including two FIFA World Player of the Year awards and a Ballon d’Or. He stands alone as the only player in history to have conquered the World Cup, a Copa América, a Confederations Cup, the Champions League, the Copa Libertadores, and a Ballon d’Or.


Renowned sports promoter and business consultant, Satadru Dutta, announced the electrifying news of Ronaldinho’s visit to Kolkata. Mr. Dutta is known for playing a pivotal role in bringing football legends such as Maradona, Pele, Cafu, and others to the city. He also orchestrated the memorable visit of the current FIFA World Cup champion, Emiliano Martinez, to Kolkata, the City of Joy, in July of this year.


Ronaldinho’s visit will include a series of activities that will delight Kolkata’s passionate football community. He will tour the historic Mohun Bagan and East Bengal football grounds, where he will interact with players and fans. Additionally, he will conduct a 30-minute football session with local enthusiasts.


In a delightful twist, the football maestro is also slated to visit the Narendrapur Green Park Durga Puja pandal, which will be meticulously themed after the FIFA World Cup final’s venue, the Lusail Stadium in Qatar. The pandal will feature an 80-foot statue of Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho’s former teammate and fellow football genius.


While Ronaldinho’s visit is still pending confirmation, Mr. Dutta’s words offer hope. In an interview with The Indian Express, he said, “While multiple reports are circulating in the media about who will visit Kolkata, I can tell the fans that I met Ronaldinho’s brother, manager Assis, and the plan is to bring the Brazilian great before Durga Puja.” Continuing, he said, “We are in the final stages of discussion, and all that remains are the dates. I aim for him to come on the 16th, 17th, and 18th. However, Ronaldinho also has some professional commitments for which there are a few finer details that need to be worked out. After that, he can surely arrive before the festivities begin in the city.”


Summary: Football legend Ronaldinho is set to make an appearance in Kolkata just before the eagerly anticipated Durga Puja Festival, with the likely visit dates falling between October 16th and 18th, 2023. This exciting event is being organized by renowned sports promoter and business consultant Satadru Dutta, along with Ronaldinho’s brother, manager, and agent, Roberto de Assis Moreira. The visit promises a series of activities, including tours of iconic football grounds and a trip to a FIFA World Cup-themed pandal, which may feature tributes to other football luminaries alongside Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho’s former teammate.
