The partnership between WHOOP and Ronaldo is an obvious one. Ronaldo’s success has been built on an obsession to perform at the highest levels. First to training, last to leave - former teammates speak of his dedication to self improvement having been the driving force behind his success. Cristiano is still performing at a very high level. He was the highest scorer in the World in 2023, is currently the top scorer in the Saudi Pro League, and is preparing for the Euros this summer. Ronaldo and WHOOP will partner on product development and leverage data-driven insights to help deliver the best health and fitness coaching for athletes and humanity broadly.

“Cristiano has been a WHOOP member for a number of years, and we’re proud to strengthen our relationship further through this partnership,” said Will Ahmed, WHOOP Founder and CEO. “Cristiano’s relentless pursuit of improvement and perfection mirrors our mission. We are looking forward to collaborating with him to share unprecedented insights into his training and recovery methods. Together, we'll unveil exciting product collaborations to enhance the WHOOP experience for our members.”

Cristiano Ronaldo, one of the greatest players in the history of football, has achieved unparalleled success across various prestigious football leagues worldwide, including the Premier League (Manchester United 2003-09; 2021-23), LaLiga (Real Madrid 2009-18), Serie A (Juventus 2018-22), and most recently, the Saudi Pro League (Al Nassr 2022-Present). As the leading scorer in the history of top-level association football globally, with 891 goals and counting, Ronaldo has won seven league titles and five UEFA Champions Leagues and is a five-time winner of the Ballon d'Or.

Ronaldo has also represented his home country of Portugal in international competition with the senior team since 2003, appearing in 206 matches to date and scoring 128 goals. His contributions have led Portugal to victory in the UEFA European Championship in 2016 and the UEFA Nations League title in 2019.

“WHOOP has had a transformative impact on my life both on and off the pitch, and I’m honored to join the team as an investor,” said Cristiano Ronaldo. “I wear WHOOP while training, sleeping, and recovering. It’s been one of the most important tools helping me elevate my game and monitor my health. I look forward to working with WHOOP to continue to raise the bar on WHOOP features and coaching.”

The partnership and investment from Ronaldo coincide with the announcement of WHOOP expanding its availability to Gulf Cooperation Council regions - Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain - in addition to Hong Kong, Israel, Korea, and Taiwan. Furthermore, by the time of the announcement, WHOOP will have extended its shipping services to India, Mexico, and Brazil, ensuring a seamless experience for members across these markets.
