Citroën AirBump® Footpool: Arsenal players perfect their trick shots
Citroën has applied its protective Airbump® technology – as seen on the Citroën C4 Cactus – to the latest experiential craze sweeping the nation: Footpool! As the official automotive partner of Arsenal Football Club, Citroën teamed up with four Arsenal Premier League players for a doubles match & a trick shot masterclass on a newly created Airbump® Footpool table.
Arsenal stars Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny, Mesut Özil and Per Mertesacker have had their first experience of Airbump® Footpool in a France vs Germany doubles match held at the Arsenal Training Ground.
Airbump® technology is a feature of the multi-award winning Citroën C4 Cactus and is designed to protect the bodywork from minor bumps and scrapes. In Airbump® Footpool, the Airbump® cushions feature Airbump® panels to deflect the balls and to allow clever trick shots as part of the game.
As well as showcasing the skill set of the players, the France vs Germany match – consisting of Koscielny and Giroud against Özil and Mertesacker – brought out the competitive spirit of the Arsenal first team players. Like a classic game of pool, the team who potted all of their balls first, won.
