The Nike House of Phenomenal was a paradise for all boys passionate about football (only Americans can call this game soccer, only Americans..) and men who deep down inside still stayed boys at heart clinging onto their dreams and love for this game, fan girls and aspiring WAGs (<- me).
Sadly it came to an end last night after two weeks of football games and special events, such as the Abdi and Celo concert or EasyDoesIt and finding the winning team all being open to public and football fans, but not before premiering Nike’s new short movie The Last Game with a special closing event.
My first visit to the House was more than a week ago, during Crew Day. I was there to watch some of my friends play and Bassgang take over the DJ set. You may have read in my tweets already how flashed I was. The spirit there and the atmosphere was pretty amazing and being among my friends (everyone present were people from my high school years that day) and watching the guys be little boys again, passionate, carefree, risking everything.
It felt very much like in a typical American Teen High School movie. All the girls sidelined cheering on the guys, only thing missing was me and my girls erupt into a cheerleading choreo and chant.
Now you may know after my trip and crazy ass experience at the Allianz Arena with Adidas, that I’ve always been very much into this game.
The House and concept itself leaves no other words than to describe it as phenomenal. It has a museum, a second pitch for you to try out the new Mercurial football shoes, a room to shop Nike FC clothing and create your own Nike IDs, a room to play either fooseball or Fifa on X-Box and and and..
I kinda regret not getting my ass to the opening party I was invited to. But I came back for the premiere of Nike’s short movie The Last Game. It’s a super cute and fun 5 minute long animation movie with a great moral message encouraging us to #riskeverything. Oh and it features two of my favourite football players – Neymar and Christiano Ronaldo (!!) #justsaying
What would life be like if we always played it safe? Oh and how boring would football be?!
If you ask me they could have done a full length movie out of it. I’d be one of the first in line to watch it in cinemas..
