Arsenal and Puma unveil world’s first left-footed football
Arsenal and official partner Puma have unveiled the world's first football designed for left-footed players
Arsenal Football Club and Puma have unveiled the world’s first left-footed football.
Designed exclusively for Arsenal, the Left-Footed evoPOWER Football was created to increase the accuracy, power and precision of a left-footed player.
In a game currently dominated by right-footed players and right-footed equipment, Arsenal felt it was crucial to develop kit specifically for their numerous left or two-footed players.
Arsenal approached Puma to see if they might be able to help and in their first season with the club, Puma have done just that.
Santi Cazorla, Mesut Özil, Nacho Monreal and Hector Bellerin, were the first players to test the new football and the results were incredible.
After trying the ball for the first time, two-footed player Santi Cazorla had just one thing to say: “It’s unbelievable!”
Right-footed player, Hector Bellerin, said: “It’s a bit tricky to use on your right-foot but it instantly improved my left-foot.”
Speaking about the launch, Keith Woods, Puma’s senior product line manager for Teamsport Accessories, said: “This football will not only improve the overall game of left and two footed players, it is also the perfect training aid for the right-footed player’s weaker left-foot.
“A left-footed player finally has the benefits that a right-footed player has always had with footballs to date.”
The new Left-Footed evoPOWER Football will be available exclusively at Arsenal’s official online store, Arsenaldirect.com soon…
