To become one of the top clubs in the world, you are going to need to every advantage you can get. Borussia Dortmund’s advantage comes in the form of the Footbonaut.
The Footbonaut is a sophisticated arena that launches soccer balls and lights up squares that enable the player to improve their technique, spacial awareness, and peripheral vision, as well as the ability to believe they are in a sci-fi movie.
Dortmund’s coach Jurgen Klopp:
“It is the perfect tool to improve ball-handling skills. It demands precise skills used at speed in a physically tough environment. It’s quite a package!”
Having had the Footbonaut for nearly a year now, I think it’s safe to say that it’s played a role in getting the club to the UEFA Champions League Final and it might be time for other teams to get on board.
