Former Barcelona and Brazil midfielder Ronaldinho has launched a new digital venture which looks to combine an entirely new cryptocurrency with a range of football services "in the real world".

The project – in partnership with Malta-based World Soccer Coin – is aiming to launch a digital currency called the Ronaldinho Soccer Coin (RSC) and use it to deliver both "digital and real services".

The partnership looks to establish a football academy, host amateur matches around the world, develop and operate a betting platform and marketplace, and develop digital, virtual reality stadiums.

"Ronaldinho Digital Stadiums will be developed in 300 locations including Asia, the Middle East, Africa and others within three years," Ronaldinho said.

"The stadiums will be created using cutting-edge digital technologies such as block-chain, AI and VR."

He claims that "construction plans" have already been confirmed in more than 10 locations around the world.

Ronaldinho, who officially retired earlier this year, is considered one of the best players of his generation.
