Ronaldinho is set to appear in a futsal tournament in Paraguay but it will be held in the prison he is being detained, reports in Brazil claim, cited on The Sun.
The Brazilian legend and brother Roberto de Assis were recently arrested for using a fake passport into the neighboring country and could spend six months in jail.
The 39-year-old was refused bail and appeals for house arrest were also rejected before he was remanded in prison in Asuncion.
According to Brazilian news media outfit Extra, the Asuncion prison is set to host a futsal tournament.
The competition is set to kick off on Monday, March 16 but the 2002 World Cup winner is expected to kick the ball. Prison officials claimed the tournament is coincidental to when the 2005 World Player of the Year was detained.
Ten teams will participate in the tournament and 194 inmates have been divided into the various teams but no prison officer will be involved.
