“It’s not really surprising that the greatest player of all time is also the greatest student of all time. I’m sure this partnership will inspire millions of people around the world to dream bigger and learn better,” said Gokulnath.

Earlier this year, BYJU’S became the official sponsor of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

“The long-standing involvement, which begins as Lionel Messi embarks on his final campaign to win the 2022 FIFA World Cup as captain of the Argentina national football team, will see him appear in campaigns promoting BYJU’S Education For All,” the statement said.

“High-quality education changes lives, and BYJU’S has changed the career paths of millions of students around the world. I hope to inspire young students to reach and stay at the top,” said Messi.
