With the pre-season party in full flow and a stateside tour in full effect, Juventus were a side right in amongst it as they hosted a takeover of their own at the adidas Tango League set up in New York City.

From Buffon to Pjanic a stellar ensemble was present as local sides took the street game to the court with the elite looking on. Each side, going toe-to-toe, round after round, it was the finale which saw the respective sides don the 17/18 Juventus home and away kits. Moreover, with NEMEZIZ vibes running throughout, it was a strong and styled set up which accompanied this all out football party.

Naturally, when you're talking about Juventus, you're talking about serious top flight clout. A once in a life-time chance for the players on pitch to impress, it's another showing of a striped game that adidas continue to bring as they unlock opportunities for these fans, all over the globe, to meet the cream of the crop. Football inspiring football, it's only going to go in a good direction.

As the best from Europe land left, right and centre across the United States, the pre-season set up is one with a big time backdrop and it's not slowing down. Globally we edge one day closer to the start of 17/18 and with the hype increasing one day after the next, it's probably time to dive right in.
