LOUD co-founder Bruno Bittencourt sees the partnership as an opportunity to exercise gaming's evolving influence. "Vini Jr. represents how culture is moving beyond just playing games. Together we'll develop unique content and programs supporting education in Brazil and Latin America," he commented. 

Vinicius Jr. established his foundation in 2021 to enhance educational resources for underprivileged children in Brazil. LOUD will contribute to these efforts as well as new projects at the Vinicius Jr. Institute.

LOUD has already made vast strides since forming in 2019. Surpassing one billion YouTube views and amassing the biggest Brazilian social media fanbase exemplify its rapid expansion. Integral to this growth was LOUD cementing a strong culture centered around mobile hit Free Fire.

Currently, LOUD actively competes in Free Fire, League of Legends and VALORANT while continually innovating its hybrid esports-media model. Adding Vinicius Jr. to its ownership continues LOUD's tradition of high-profile partnerships as it aims to inspire the next generation of players and fans.
