Because there's more than just the GP Explorer in life, it's another major sporting event which will soon take place, with a broadcast planned online. No motor sport here, but an event dedicated to football, just a few weeks before the opening of EURO 2024. However, it is a football tournament a little special, with network stars, but also renowned footballers.

What is the Kings World Cup?

The Kings World Cup is an international football tournament, imagined by Gerard Piqué. A tournament which will include no less than 32 teams from 22 different countries. No 11v11 here, since each team will have a total of 7 players.

In total, ten teams are selected by the Kings League, ten others by the Americas’ Kings League, without forgetting twelve invited teams. The matches will consist of two halves of 20 minutes each, and each team is entitled to unlimited substitutions. Like certain video games, it will be possible to activate “bonus“, for benefit, for example, from a goal that counts double or from a penalty, taken by the president of the team.

Similarly, in the Kings World Cup, a yellow card is equivalent to 2 minutes of exclusion, compared to 5 minutes for a red card. Rules somewhat revisited therefore, for maximum spectacle and unforeseen events.

Who is the Kings World Cup?

At the helm of the Kings World Cup, we find the footballer Gerard Piqué, with a certain Zlatan Ibrahimovic as president. France will be represented by the Foot2Rue team, led by AmineMaTué. Among the “wild cards” of the French team, we find Samir Nasri and Jérémy Ménez. Note that Adil Rami was also retained in the team, but deadline issues (and certain complaints from opposing teams) did not allow the player to take part in the competition.

Recall that this same AmineMaTue had notably organized and broadcast the Eleven All Stars match (France/Spain) on Twitch, accumulating more than 1.2 million viewers.

On the competition side, among the Kings League teams, we find 1K FC with Iker Casillas, Kunisports, with Sergio Aguero, but also Deptostra FC with Eden Hazard, UA Steel with Andriy Shevchenko or even Stallions, with Roman legend Francesco Totti. Very beautiful people then.
