‘The Messi Experience,’ as it’s aptly named, is aimed at providing an immersive multimedia adventure to fans worldwide with a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the life and career of the World Cup winner.

Famous Italian soccer journalist and analyst Gabriele Marcotti recently voiced his doubts regarding this latest venture featuring Lionel Messi. In a debate on ESPN FC’s ‘The Gab and Juls Show,’ Marcotti boldly labeled the endeavor as ‘beyond stupid.’

“I think this is beyond stupid, but I’m sure it appeals to some people,” Marcotti said. “It allows you to replicate Messi’s training regimen. Messi is known for, especially at his age, his hardcore training. And more interestingly, you can interview an AI version of Messi. I don’t want to. Is this cool or is this kind of stupid?” Marcotti added.

While fans across the world anticipate an opportunity to explore Messi’s life and career, it seems that not everyone is convinced by ‘The Messi Experience.’ Marcotti raised questions about the project’s relevance and the level of engagement it could offer the visitors. Although many people would be delighted with a remarkable opportunity to get up close with Lionel Messi, others like Marcotti remain unconvinced.

The venture set to launch next year in April aims to provide a novel way for fans to connect with their favorite soccer player. It is difficult to guess about the forecasted success of the venture, but the prospect of ‘The Messi Experience’ sounds highly intriguing. It will ultimately hinge on how well it aligns with fans and enthusiasts across the world.
