After a stellar first season, adidas Gamday Plus video series is back for the new Champions League season, bringing in insights and interviews every Monday night ahead of UCL clashes on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Last season saw some pretty insightful interviews with Pep Guardiola over the course of the first few weeks, but 2014 starts off the new format to the show inconsiderable style, wit Leo Messi, Andre Schurrle and more dropping in.
In an exclusive behind-the-scenes interview for adidas Gameday Plus, Messi talks about playing in the UEFA Champions League with and against the best players in the world, his childhood in Rosario, Argentina, and scoring five goals in a UEFA Champions League match.
adidas also use their access to get up close with Chelsea’s Andre Schürrle, who talks about the influence of friend and former team-mate Michael Ballack, also once of Chelsea, and gives fans the chance to win a pair of signed boots through adidas Gamedayplus.
They also have a chat with friend of Footy-Boots.com, Aubrey Dolan of the adidas Innovation Team, to get a glimpse of the stunning new adidas adizero f50 boot, designed in collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto.
Feeling more like a continuation of adidas’ great webisodes from out in Brazil for the World Cup, we’re definitely looking forward to seeing what the Three Stripes can bring to the table in coming weeks.
Consider adidas’ Gameday Plus the perfect filler for the ad-break in Monday Night Football.
