The Argentine striker will be co-streaming all of the matches played by KRÜ Esports, one of the four South American teams attending Valorant Champions, the game’s end-of-the-year international LAN that will have $1 million on offer.
Aguero is the founder and CEO of KRÜ Esports, an organization launched in October 2020 that currently competes in both Valorant and FIFA.

Esports fans eager to watch KRÜ’s matches alongside Aguero will simply need to tune in to the football star’s Twitch channel. The predominantly Chilean team will play their first match on December 2 at 8 PM GMT against Team Liquid.
Aguero has amassed over 3.4 million followers on Twitch since he began streaming in April 2020. He has played a variety of games on stream, from FIFA to Fall Guys and Among Us.
In September, the Barcelona striker appeared as a guest on Ibai Llanos’s Twitch channel. For over two hours, the pair discussed a wide range of topics, including the reason why football players prefer to speak to the Spanish streamer than to journalists.
