To commemorate the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, adidas’ 9th annual FANATIC soccer tournament in New York City is “going global” with a new name – adiCup, 2010 FIFA World Cup™ edition. A record 28 teams will compete Saturday, May 22nd on the main field at New York’s Pier 40, where the event first began eight years ago.
For this special edition, similar tournaments will also be held in Tokyo, Berlin and London throughout the months of May and June. The grand prize winning teams from each of the four participating cities will then be invited to compete with each other at the adiCup 2010 World Finals at adidas’ own headquarters in Herzogenaurach, Germany on June 26th. The 98,000 square meter Adi Dassler Sportplatz center features a state-of-the-art pitch which is currently host to the South African National Team who is training there for 2010 FIFA World Cup™.
