While not everyone is capable of scoring a goal ever so decisively like Cristiano Ronaldo or David Beckham, foosball is an easier alternative for most to actually live out the football dream vicariously. To satisfy the dream of going to South Africa this year in a competitive fervor, 55DSL has collaborated with publisher PANINI to present the ultimate international foosball championshipâ€”the Galactic Battle of Foosball.
Seven countries will take place in heated battles over the foosball table in eight battles to win the chance of a lifetime to be beamed to South Africa with 55DSL creative director Andrea Rosso this July. The competition is set to take place in US, UK, Japan, Italy, France, Greece in Columbia. Teams of two will battle to rise above their own countrymen before playing in the final battle in Bassano del Grappa in June. To prep team players for the launch and galactic fanfare, 55DSL and PANINI have also created a capsule collection of tees inspired by the world’s top football countries. The capsule collection comprises of 10 t-shirts created in collaboration with 10 different artists, with one extra celebratory t-shirt created by the 55DSL creative team. The special capsule collection will be available at 55DSL stores worldwide. To buy a tee or join the closest battle, check out the special Galactic Battle of Foosball microsite on 55DSL.
