The organisers of Premier Futsal announced on Tuesday that former Brazilian footballer Ronaldino has left the ongoing tournament after being appointed the ambassador of the 2016 Paralympics in his home country. The organisers also announced that they had signed Ronaldinho's former Brazil teammate Cafu to replace him and captain the Goa franchise.

"A few days back, Ronaldinho was informed that he has been chosen as the ambassador of the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil and requested the organisers’ permission to leave the tournament midway to honour the position he was offered," said an official statement from Premier Futsal. "The Premier Futsal management is committed to have a long-term association with Ronaldinho and took his request into consideration, before allowing him permission to leave," the statement added.
