The adidas brand helps young street football players from Moscow successfully conquer new spaces. Now Moscow’s young football heroes have an incredible hub, a multifunctional base, housed in the old warehouse formerly belonging to the PRAVDA publishing house. The space comprises two large football fields with pro surfaces, a huge screen, panna cages and areas for table tennis, kickers and PS4 - all accompanied by the lounge zone sponsored by the bar’s partners, Sparkling Dog & Coca Cola. Starting in August 2016 and culminating in November 2017 the base is hosting many notable football events: presentations of new models of football boots as well as unique football tournaments and challenges, FIFA 18 launch events, presentations of the national team strip and the Confederations Cup ball. At the end of the day the base turns into a concert ground for trend-setting young musicians and performers.
