They play in the NASL – the second division in the US.

He has acquired approximately 25 percent of the side and becomes part of the new ownership of the club, joining Brazilian investors Paulo Cesso, Ricardo Geromel and Rafael Bertani who acquired the team in September. Financial details were not disclosed.

At age 38, there is speculation that Ronaldo will return to playing professionally for his new side, especially given that fellow players such as Frank Lampard (36) and Raul (37) are still playing in the US.

The club’s ties with Brazil also feature Corinthians (Ronaldo’s former club) who have agreed to hold pre-season training at Fort Lauderdale’s Lockhart Stadium in early January 2015.
