Gaming star Ninja dishes on eMLS, “fire” New York Red Bulls jersey and more


NEW YORK — The preeminent name in gaming and streaming, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has done it all in popular games such as Fortnite among others. EA Sports’ FIFA, though, is something he played when he was younger. As such, perhaps the star streamer could consider a foray into the elite gamers of eMLS? “You’re talking about FIFA? Hell no! I haven’t played FIFA since I was little,” Ninja told MLSsoccer.com from the league’s FORWARD25 event in New York City, where he repped the New York Red Bulls and presented the club’s new 2020 jersey. Then he pondered it a bit more. “I mean, (Chad) Ochocinco challenged me like a year ago and I never took him up on that,” Ninja continued. “Who knows, actually, give me like a week in that game bro and I’d be good.” All Us. All Red. All Black. pic.twitter.com/niN6c6cr4N — New York Red Bulls (@NewYorkRedBulls) February 6, 2020 It’s not as if Ninja is a stranger to the soccer world. He played throughout his childhood, all the way up through varsity soccer at his high school. “My parents and my brothers said that I had the most natural talent in the family when it comes to actually playing soccer, but unfortunately I was putting a lot more time and effort into playing video games instead of going outside juggling and practicing my ball touches,” Ninja said. “I definitely think I could have had a career if I put all my effort into it.” Ultimately, he opted for video games, which has worked out quite well. I’ve been partnered with RedBull for years, it was my pleasure and honor to represent them. Don’t worry, you still have your transfer budget
