Meet My Adidas- Team in Black, the Newcomers of the Men’s 50 Tuesday League

The Men’s 50 Tuesday League has a new team this season: My Adidas- Team in Black. The team is owned by Patrick Downing, a former soccer player and coach who decided to join the league for fun and fitness. Downing recruited some of his friends and former teammates to form the team, which consists of 12 players, all over 50 years old.

The team’s name is inspired by Downing’s favorite song, “My Adidas” by Run-DMC, and their uniform is black with white stripes. Downing says the name reflects the team’s attitude and style: “We’re not here to be flashy or fancy, we’re here to play hard and have fun. We respect our opponents, but we also want to win. We’re old school, but we’re not outdated.”

The team plays in the Tuesday Night Men’s over 50 league, which features eight teams of men over 50 who play every Tuesday night at the Akron Indoor Soccer facility. The league is sponsored by Vito, the owner of the facility and a local beer distributor. The winning team of the league will receive kegs of beer from Vito.

My Adidas- Team in Black’s first game is against Kitec Red, one of the returning teams from last season. Kitec Red finished third in the league last year, and they are known for their fast and aggressive play. Downing says he is looking forward to the challenge: “They’re a tough team, but we’re not afraid of them. We have some good players on our team, too. We have experience, skill, and passion. We’re ready to show what we can do.”

The game will take place on Tuesday, November 7th, at 7:30 pm. The game is open to the public, and admission is free. Come and support My Adidas- Team in Black, or just enjoy some quality soccer action. For more information about the league, visit www.akronindoorsoccer.com
