On 12 February, leading South African football media were invited by adidas SA to test the recently launched adidas ACE 16.1 boots at the ACE &Cage event hosted at Johannesburg’s Monte Casino.
The media were divided into two teams – Pink vs. White, and kitted in the new ACE 16.1 boot, ready to put them to the test by opening the first match of the day. The first match of the day. After a gruelling 15 minutes of play, one of SA’s leading celebrities, Maps Maponyane (son of former football player, Mark Maponyane), proved to be the deciding factor as he scored the winning goal for the pink team.
Media were then invited to spend some time with adidas management and brand ambassadors which included leading Premier Soccer League players such as Orlando Pirates’ Happy Jele and Thandani Ntshumayelo as well as Supersport United’s Michael Morton. Once the formalities were over, the media were treated to their favourite Col’Cacchio pizzas and drinks bringing the Friday evening to a fitting ending indeed.
