TOT United successfully defends Tango League title
Adidas Tango League champions for the second time consecutively, TOT United, walked away with a cash prize of RM 5,000 after their 2-0 victory over Sinchan FC in the final at the Open Space, Lot D1, Kuala Lumpur City Centre on Saturday (August 12).
The best street footballers between the ages of 16 and 25 from around the country were able to once again display their unique street football skills, array of abilities and plenty of gusto in this edition where the street lights and the busy KL city atmosphere provided a fantastic backdrop and gave the tournament a truly urban feel.
“As a major sportswear brand in the world, we feel obligated to support the level of sports especially football in this country and pay special attention to the development of our local young talents who will one day represent the national team. This effort is clearly reflected with the sponsorship of eight players in the U-22 national football team competing in the KL SEA Games 2017,” said Zhi Vern.
He added that with adidas also being the official sportswear partner of the National Football Development Programme (NFDP), it will help in improving the future of local talents in football.
Hazizi walked away with an adidas boot deal in hand just as his teammate, Shahril Anuar did after being crowned MVP in the first edition.
“It was a good exposure competing in the Tango League and I am extremely thankful to my teammates for helping me achieve this award. My dream now is to be selected to don the national futsal team colours as I believe I have enough experience to perform at the international stage after competing in tournaments worldwide,” said the 24-year-old Hazizi.
This edition of the Tango League coincided with the launch of adidas’ Ocean Storm NEMEZIZ colourway featuring a dark blue and turquoise trim alongside the trademark adidas three stripes in yellow. Worn by the likes of FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Liverpool's Roberto Firmino and Julian Draxler of Paris Saint Germain, the unique versatility of the boot is made possible with the revolutionary 'Agilitybandage' and 'Torsiontapes' technology which keeps the foot locked down for a perfect fit while the new 'Agilityknit 2.0' interlocking yarn provides a soft direct touch and a lightweight, adaptable feel.
