To welcome the arrival of Hong Kong’s new National Team Kit for 2012-2013 season, Nike Soccer and toy designer Michael Lau created the whimsical “Hong Kong Fight” Foosball Table. While a humorous iteration, the foosball table still embodies many of important elements of Chinese culture. Lau first recreated each member of the Hong Kong National Football Team, but with a creative twist and modeled them into “HK Fighter”, animated dragon-like figures, in honor of Year of the Dragon. Next, Lau added handles from four actual weapons popularized in kung-fu films as the rotating bars. Thoughtfully designed, each of the weapons are in response to player’s position on the table. For example, a striker will have a sword’s handle while a fighting staff will that of the goal tender. Finally, in honor of Nike Soccer, the whole foosball comes alive as a “beast” of some sort, wearing Nike Soccer shorts, large reproduction of Nike CTR360 boots, and Nike Goalkeeper Spyne Pro glove.
