International football star Cristiano Ronaldo has joined a group of investors committing over $40 million to UFL, a new free football game developed by Paphos-based gaming publisher Strikerz Inc. The investment, a major milestone for UFL, involves Ronaldo actively participating in shaping the game's development, leveraging his global influence with over 614 million Instagram followers. 

Known for his achievements with Juventus, Real Madrid, and Manchester United, Ronaldo, now playing for Al-Nassr FC, aims to contribute significantly to UFL's success and engage football fans worldwide. Ronaldo expressed his excitement, stating, "I am excited to be part of this project as the UFL can become the new breed in football games."

While an official release date is pending, the closed testing phase began in the fall, with UFL set for release on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X and S. The game will be available for free, emphasizing fair play, regular updates, and a skill-based approach without pay-to-win features.
