TOT United A clinch Adidas Tango League title
TOT United A proved their prowess as they emerged champions of the Adidas Tango League after defeating One United 7-2 in the final at Makespace, Quill City Mall recently.
TOT United A hit if off right from the start with a 7-4 victory over Cyber FC before defeating YSFC 4-2 in the semi-finals to book a final clash with One United, who had defeated Red Galacticos 3-1 before seeing out a nervy 4-3 win over Hang FC.
The Tango League, unlike an ordinary futsal competition, is a platform to expose aspiring young footballers or football enthusiasts to stadium match-day atmosphere.
Similar to the Bangkok, Paris, London and Berlin editions, this league is not just a series of events as it promotes community engagement and also focuses on creating the next generation of brand influencers through social media among other aspects.
Adidas-sponsored national team player Khairul Helmi, said the tournament should be held annually as it brings a positive impact especially on the younger generation.
“For me, the Tango League is a great initiative for youths especially, as it helps keep them actively involved in sports. The other challenges at the venue such as the Play Station 4 Booth and Tango Pro Live Instagram Booth made the event more interesting and fun,” said Khairul Helmi, who is also Kedah’s skipper.
Tot United A received a cash prize of RM5, 000 while One United took home RM3, 000.
TOT United A player, Mohd Shahril Anuar walked away with an Adidas boot deal after being voted Most Valuable Player (MVP) player by Perak captain Shahrom Kalam and Khairul Helmi, who were the panel of judges.
Players and supporters were also treated to a host of other onsite activities such as the Play Station 4 Fifa 2017 Game, Tango Pro mini drill activities (One-onOne Challenge, Hit the Target, Juggling Challenge) and the Tango Pro Live Instagram Booth.
