Eintracht eyeing first zero-gravity goal
Eintracht Frankfurt are in line to score the first ever zero-gravity goal, with board member Fredi Bobic to tee up Sébastien Haller at an altitude of 8,500 metres at the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME – Zero G 2019.
In conjunction with the club's primary sponsor Indeed and kit manufacturer Nike, Eintracht will record a first at the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME, with Bobic scheduled to set up Haller to score. It is the second time that BigCityBeats has joined forces with the European Space Agency (ESA) to organise a zero-gravity nightclub.
The event takes place in a converted Airbus A310 that is normally used by the ESA for astronaut training and scientific experiments. A number of celebrity guests will accompany the Frankfurt duo on the parabolic flight, with DJs from the electronic music scene converting the plane into a ‘space version’ of the BigCityBeats WORLD CLUB DOME, the annual three-day music event that takes place at the Commerzbank-Arena every June.
"A great opportunity for our club"
As a frequent flyer, Bobic is used to taking to the skies – although he usually does so without a ball at his feet. "This will top everything," he said. “It’ll be a very special experience. It's a great opportunity for the club to showcase itself internationally. Obviously I'm looking forward to setting Sébastien up so that he can score the first ever zero-gravity goal."
