Citroen has teamed up with Arsenal football players to showcase the many uses its Airbump technology has – by creating a ‘headers’ table.
Building on the classic game of headers, ‘Headis’ is a combination of football and table tennis. Many football teams use the game to keep their reflexes in check.
Airbump technology currently features on Citroen’s popular Cactus model, providing protection from minor scrapes and knocks. It’s ideal for cars that are driven mainly in cities and towns, where parking incidents are more likely to occur.
Rene Wegner, the man credited with inventing the game, said: “The Arsenal players were really good and you can see that their footballing abilities translate well in Headis.
“The competition was fierce, but Arteta was a deserved champion as not only did he display great technique, but also great tactical skill. I hope the players will report back on the benefits of Airbump headis to the manager.”
