You can only imagine the frenzy at The Beach, JBR…

What is a “Nutmeg Foosball Table” you ask?!

Modelled after the sport’s most mischievous move, the Pepsi Nutmeg Foosball Table spices up the classic game by introducing players with parted legs, allowing competitors to nutmeg their opponent. Much like a nutmeg on the pitch, this unique upgrade created an additional challenge and fuels a thirst for the exciting and unexpected that is all too familiar when a nutmeg takes place in real life.

Ronaldinho was seen slaying the same jersey from the recent Pepsi x AOF collection – a collection that pays homage to the brand’s iconic 00s football strip that first premiered 20 years ago – as his miniature teammates. Fans skilled enough to complete a nutmeg on the table won well-earned bragging rights.
