Anyone that pays close attention to our Twitter or Facebook page yesterday will have noticed that we broke the news that FIFA World Player of the Year Lionel Messi is making a whirlwind stop in the UK very soon!

adidas are bringing Lionel Messi to the UK

adidas will be bringing the Barca Ace to London to play a huge citywide game of Catch Me if You Can, with fans given the opportunity to spend some time with Messi himself on one condition – You have to catch him first!

adidas will be putting the mercurial Argentine to the test with a series of Challenges of Speed, which will push Messi to his limits in a bid to stake his claim as one of the fastest on the planet!

Footy-Boots.com will be lacing up our adidas F50 adiZeros and keeping stride (or at least, trying to, dodgy knee – you know how it is!) with Messi every step of the way, and will be given extremely VIP access to the superstar.

Lionel Messi's adidas Football Boots helicopter

adidas have revealed that the first of Messi’s challenges will be being dropped in by helicopter(!) onto a random ongoing 11-a-side game, where he’ll join in the match as the World’s fastest super-sub!

If that’s just the start, we can’t wait to see what adidas come up with next for the current Ballon D’or holder!

So, we’re posing to you guys – what would you ask (arguably) the World’s Best Player if you had the chance?

And even better – will you be trying to keep pace with Messi around London when the day comes?

Let us know and we’ll do our best to get those questions answered!

Stay tuned to Footy-Boots.com and the adidas Facebook page for the most up to date information!

    woohoo!!! My question would be… if adidas didnt pay you to wear their boots, which one will you pick? Another brand? Or another silo?

    LOL funny (and very interesting) question zizou wannabe!

    but since messy is an adidas sponsored athlete (and this is an adidas sponsored event), i doubt he could ever answer that one…

  3. says: E@zy

    Yea I agree with channo.

    Umm, are we allowed to use our own private helicopter to “keep up” with Messi?

    Not that I have one though. Just an idea

    I have a question for Messi. I’d like to know what keeps him so motivated after he has already won everything with Barcelona and been top scorer of La Liga. What keeps him scoring hat-tricks and pushing the limits? 🙂

    Two questions:

    Does Leo find the adizero gives him enough protection?

    What’s the first thing he does to test out a boot when he first wears it?
