Maradona Sues NASDAQ-Listed Chinese Game Company For Using His Image Without Asking

3 Jun

A $183-million Chinese online game company allegedly used Diego Maradona’s face on the game “Winning Goal” without his permission, according to China Daily.

NASDAQ-listed The9 Limited claims it was cheated by a sports agent, Lu Weiping, who received $250,000 for signing Maradona to a contract.

Maradona rejected an apology letter from The9 Limited as “insincere” and promised to pursue the case in court.
