Guilherme Pinheiro

Joining the CeleBreak team in early 2018, Guilherme Pinheiro hails from the tropical city of Belo Horizonte, Brazil. A graduate of the Federal University of Minas Gerais with a Master’s degree in Sports Science, he is also currently working towards finishing his PhD in Performance Analysis and Sports Informatics at the University of Munich.

Guilherme is a fan of all things related to the outdoors and sports. If it’s football, even better! Having been born in Curitiba and raised in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, you can imagine that football was and continues to be a major part of his life. He began playing when he was just eight years old on the local neighborhood team and quickly became a rising star on the pitch. Representing his school’s teams throughout the years, Guiherme and his teammates won several local and regional championships.

At the age of 15, faced with one of the toughest decisions that any talented athlete can be faced with, he had to choose between dedicating himself full time to his studies or pursuing a professional career as a player. He chose the latter, although he continues to play to this day with no plans of stopping any time soon.

During one of his visits to Barcelona, Guilherme was lucky enough to participate in CeleBreak’s very first tournament where he eventually met Daniel and Sebastian Foth, co-founders of the company. Guilhereme’s passion for the game paired with his love for connecting with new people made him a perfect match for our team. In 2018, after moving to Germany, he was offered to join CeleBreak and take lead on developing and overseeing all operations in Munich.

Now in charge of negotiating agreements with field owners, overseeing match-planning, match-organizing, as well as maintaining and embodying the CeleBreak values, he continues to forge new partnerships and help CeleBreak grow.
