Tango shapes and a pyro party. With the finale unfolding, London played host to the adidas Tango League that gives those kings of the street a chance to show what they're all about. Big game and an adidas contract there for the taking, the Tango League continues to leave a mark on the scene with Shoreditch showcasing a styled out finish. Fighting to earn their stripes? Big time.
When adidas offer you the opportunity to turn up and throw down Tango shapes with the chance to earn city wide stripes of approval, you're going to bring your game to the party. Not to mention fresh kit, fire on the feet and flares to fill the skyline. Closing proceedings on the London instalment of the 2017 Tango League, adidas took to Shoreditch for to offer some of the city's finest free-flowing street players a chance to show just how strong they suit up.
The prize on offer is big. Earn your status as city champs and you're up against rivals once more to battle it out for an adidas contract. A chance to join the heavy hitting stripes and represent the street game, it's an opportunity not to be missed and with big hair, shades of cool and strong game, London played its part in bringing the game up to standard.
One team however owned it with more fight, more flare and more finish than all the others on this occasion. Introducing the London 2017 winners, 'POGBOOM F.C.'. A fitting title for a team named after the face that runs the place wherever there's a three striped party.
Not stopping there, the lads have staked their claim as leaders of London but now it's about partying further than your postcode. Taking the game all over and going to work city vs city, watch out for the next Tango instalment that promises to go the distance.
