If fans thought that the Neymar Jr. bundle was the best thing that came out of the soccer player’s association with Fortnite, they were clearly wrong. His latest tweet has given all his fans and many Fortnite players a reason to be excited. Neymar is putting together the biggest collaboration since Ninja played the game with Drake back in 2018.

Neymar Jr. has a crazy passion for gaming. When the soccer star isn’t out polishing his skills on the field, one can find him on his gaming chair destroying CS:GO pros or cranking 90s in Fortnite. He has also made a name for himself streaming games on Twitch amongst his Brazilian fans and is an equally big name in the gaming community as he is in sports.

Using his influence, Neymar Jr. managed to convince popular Spanish streamer and current record holder for highest live viewers on Twitch, GrefG, to join him for a game of Fortnite. GrefG won’t be the only star streamer in the Fortnite games that Neymar will play on May 26. Joining the two is none other than Ninja himself, taking the star collaboration to a whole new level.

Completing the four-man squad is FlakesPower, CEO of the esports organization HeroBase. The Brazilian esports organization was recently formed and quickly rose to the top in the Latin America region, and having its CEO on the stream means Neymar Jr. has touched all the bases.

With so many Fortnite fanatics, it seems highly likely that GrefG might end up losing his current record to Neymar as he joins him on the stream. A record that many thought was going to remain unbroken a few months ago might not last as long as Ninja’s did since 2018. Regardless of whether it will break a record, the stream is definitely going to entertain thousands of people across the Fortnite community.
