Although Daniel and Max have been to interesting places like Dubai, Vietnam or Sydney in their careers, both were more than surprised when the German Embassy in India arrived. The Cultural Department of the German Embassy wanted to spread football as part of German culture in India. Two football freestylers are just right for that! After a few stressful moments in the visa offices, the two ball artists sat on the plane to Delhi – one flew in from Frankfurt, the other from Cape Town – from where else.
Football freestyle instead of timpani
Arrived in Delhi, a tight show program was waiting for Daniel and Max. Especially in schools and educational centers in Delhi, the two should perform their football show to show the Indian kids a very different side of football. And the kids loved it! Never before have the two football freestylers been greeted so well with their shows: The children stood trellis and greeted Max and Daniel in German with various signs that they had designed in German lessons. After the shows, autographs were diligently distributed and interviews were given. Of course you were also invited by the school management for coffee and cake, according to Indian tradition.
Soccer tricks in front of India’s sights
Of course, Daniel and Max have not only seen schools in India. The German Embassy had previously selected some Indian landmarks such as the India Gate and Connaught Place to hold street shows and record pictures and videos for social media. The street shows were a complete success! True to the motto “Back to the Roots” and without a glamorous stage, the two ballartists gave a fabulous duo show to more than enthusiastic spectators. Of course, it was filmed diligently, this clip reached more than 20,000 people on Instagram. After three days in the city of Delhi, a contrast program was set up for the two football freestylers. It went to Goa, which is best known for its paradisiacal beaches and music festivals. Read in the second part of the blog what the two expected there.
