"A time to make friends". The motto of the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ has also been taken up by adidas, Official Partner, Supplier and Licensee of the FIFA World Cup™. In the weeks leading up to and during the tournament, adidas is inviting journalists to visit the adidas World of Sports in Herzogenaurach, where they can kit themselves out in adidas gear at the Factory Outlet Store at greatly reduced prices. adidas will also arrange travel for them, organising a bus from the International Media Center in Munich.

The first bus will run on Monday 29 May 2006 at 9am from the IMC, parking bay P3. Other trips will be held from Tuesday 30 May 2006 - Friday 2 June 2006, each time at 9am from the IMC, parking bay P3.

Journalists can sign up for the trips at the adidas counter by the North Entrance of the IBC in Munich, or by telephone: +49 (0) 89 94388147.
