Numerous sportspeople have been known to play CSGO, but Neymar is likely the most dedicated one. The Brazilian footballer doesn’t mess around when it comes to his Faceit and matchmaking rank. He’s also friends with top-tier Brazilian professional players who help him beat high-ranked players in CSGO. Not that he needs help. The footballer has crushed the likes of Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut and Richard “shox” Papillon in clutch situations. 

Jerzy Janowicz

World-class server Jerzy Janowicz is also an ace aimer in Valve’s shooter. The Polish tennis player is a bit of a rager in CSGO, but his in-game skills make up for his temper. With his entertaining gaming content, he’s netted 66,000 followers on Twitch. The majority of his following comes from Call of Duty, but his fans are always excited to watch him play CSGO.

Unlike other celebrities who are into gaming, Deadmau5 isn’t just a casual CSGO fan. The music producer is also invested into CSGO esports and has expressed a wish to watch an event live.

Soulja Boy is likely one of the oldest CSGO fans. He is no longer quite as active as he once was as he’s taken a liking to different types of games since. But his years-old steam account and many hours played show that he was an avid CSGO enjoyer. The Crank That singer has crisp aim in the first-person shooter thanks to his experience in Valve’s FPS. 

Chris Weidman
