World Cup Day 11: Touring Adidas World Cup Global HQ and Google / YouTube Studios
Today brought its own adventure and one that I have been waiting for the whole trip. Our gang toured the Adidas World Cup Global HQ and Google / YouTube Studios. The facility is amazing and that is an understatement.
The offices include the set from where the team live broadcasts their daily World Cup segments (which will include a Dave Beckham interview in a few days), rooftop deck for viewing parties, walls including one game ball from each past World Cup game, past World Cup mementos, jersey, and photographs.
I definitely geeked out. We got to hold the replica of the World Cup trophies and hungout in the offices. We ended the tour hanging out with some of the talent and employees in a Q&A. This adventure almost met my energy level when we got to hold the match ball from the Crotia vs. Mexico game.
