Indoor Football Challenges

In 2020 the world changed due to the global pandemic and football had to adapt. With the announcement of the 2nd lockdown in Germany Hannover 96 and Just Football wanted to do something to motivate players to be active from home. We teamed up to create 9 new football challenges that can be played in your garden. kitchen or living room, from technique and goalkeeper drills to skilful dribbling, turns and tricks. 

In the app, users select from different football challenges presented by Hannover 96 players and football school coaches. They watch how to complete the challenges and then try to master them. By sharing their challenge efforts in the social feed, they earn stars from the Just Football community which helps them climb leaderboards and unlock rewards.

While some traditional football activities are limited our goal is to provide footballers with inspiration to have fun and be active from home. You can try the Hannover 96 custom challenges in Germany in the Just Football App here.
