Barcelona’s Andrés Iniesta Discusses His Early Origins of Play in “My Ground”

As a young player growing up in Fuentealbilla, south of Spain, Andrés Iniesta had dreams of making it to the professional ranks of football. Small-sided games were a formative part of his footballing education that still benefits his style of play today with Barcelona FC. When his schedule allows it, Iniesta joins training sessions with the Barca Alusport Team (FCB’s futsal equivalent). Nike Football‘s “My Ground” film gives a glimpse into Iniesta’s time training with his futsal colleagues and his background in the small-sided game. During filming Iniesta tested the new Nike Elastico Finale II while some of his opponents wore the new Nike Lunargato II – both part of the recently launched Nike Football FC247 collection designed for football anytime and anywhere. The new Nike Lunargato II and Elastico Finale II will available online beginning March 28.
