Who Is Neymar Jr?

Neymar da Silva Santos Junior, better known as Neymar Jr, is a professional footballer who plays for Brazil. Many football fans regard Neymar as one of the best in the world.


The Brazilian footballer made his debut back in 2009 and is currently only 29 years old. Even at such a young age, Neymar is ranked among the world’s most prominent sportsmen.

According to SportsPro, he was named the most marketable athlete in the world in 2012 and 2013. But it looks like he’s still just as marketable in 2021 after the announcement that he would be joining forces with the most popular game in the world right now, Fortnite.

When Will The Neymar Jr Fortnite Skin Release?

Although Chapter 2: Season 6 kicked off back on March 16, little has been discussed regarding the collaboration between Fortnite and Neymar Jr. But now, if leaks are to be believed, we may have a date for the suspected Neymar Jr skin.

Thanks to trusted Fortnite data miner, @TweaBR, they suggest the new skin will be available towards the end of April. The Neymar Jr skin looks to be hitting the Fortnite Item Shop around April 27, 2021.

So, unfortunately, there’s still another month of waiting until players can get a Victory Royale as Neymar Jr.
