Gunners Town is delighted to be one of the few sites to whom Arsenal Football Club sends exclusive promotional material (and the occasional invite to launches/screenings/book signings etc). It’s one of the perks of maintaining a daily presence, blogging about the Goonerverse, I suppose! We’re looking forward to the day that we get sent transfer scoops – then we’ll know we’ve hit the big time! We won’t hold our breath…
Anyhow – please enjoy this latest missive from our friends at Highbury House:
Arsenal Football Club and official Club partner PUMA have unveiled a world first; the Left-Footed evoPOWER Football.
Designed exclusively for Arsenal, the Left-Footed evoPOWER Football was created to increase the accuracy, power and precision of a left-footed player.
In a game currently dominated by right-footed players and right-footed equipment, the Club felt it was crucial to develop kit specifically for their numerous left or two-footed players.
Arsenal approached PUMA to see if they might be able to help and in their first season with the Club, PUMA have done just that.
Santi Cazorla, Mesut Özil, Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin, were the first players to test the new football and the results were incredible.
After trying the ball for the first time, two-footed player Santi Cazorla had just one thing to say: “It’s unbelievable!”
Right-footed player, Hector Bellerin, said: “It’s a bit tricky to use on your right-foot but it instantly improved my left-foot.”
Further player reactions and exclusive training footage with the new ball can be watched here:
Speaking about the launch, Keith Woods, PUMA’s Senior Product Line Manager for Teamsport Accessories, said: “This football will not only improve the overall game of left and two footed players, it is also the perfect training aid for the right-footed player’s weaker left-foot. A left-footed player finally has the benefits that a right-footed player has always had with footballs to date.”
The new Left-Footed evoPOWER Football will be available exclusively at Arsenal’s official online store, Arsenaldirect.com soon…
