[WOW] Ronaldinho puts up his apartment for rental on Airbnb for World Cup 2014

So the world is raving about the upcoming world cup, set to happen on 12th June 2014. The 2014 FIFA World Cup will be the 20th FIFA World Cup, an international men’s football tournament that is scheduled to take place in Brazil.

Ronaldinho Gaúcho, the midfielder for the Brazil team, has just made the World Cup a lot cooler for his fans worldwide: he has just listed his apartment for rental at Airbnb.

His apartment listing on Airbnb reads: The property was recently built using the highest standards and has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, swimming pool and a leisure area – totaling over 1000m2. It will be available during the first half of July, and only inquiries from guests with complete, verified profiles will be considered. 

On top of that, guests will have access to the entire house, including the sauna, swimming pool with jacuzzi, barbecue area, home theater, gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, a special fridge for beer, fireplace, office, zen room for massages or yoga, parking for up 3 cars and an exclusive stage to enjoy a good samba party with friends.

The apartment doesn’t come cheap through: guests can book the apartment at the price of $19337 per night. However, considering that there are multiple bedrooms, as well as the fact that the listing is only 30 minutes drive away from the Maracanã Stadium, which is the official stadium for FIFA World Cup 2014, the listing sounds like a good deal, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the apartment listing is fully booked by now.

Renowned for his technique, tricks, dribbling, overhead kicks, no-look passes and free kicks, Ronaldinho is widely regarded to be one of the best footballers of his generation.
