Just Football! 24/7, 365 Days
Catering To 170 Million Indian Football/Soccer Fans
Launched By Buffalo Soldiers Media & Strategists – A New Media Startup
India’s first football platform,’FootTheBall.com’ is here, and they are ready to dribble into the beautiful game and beyond. Launched by new-media start-up Buffalo Soldiers Media & Strategists, #FootTheBall or #FTB offers the latest news, commentary, statistics and visuals on football from across the globe.
This online platform covers the full gamut of the game – on and off the field. It’s beyond ’90 min’ of action on field by bringing all the behind-the-scenes stories, transfer news, gossip, WAGs, scandal, glamour and a 360 degree coverage of the game for that adrenalin rush that makes it the most popular sport in the world. Along with covering the best of global football and the biggest tournaments and leagues worldwide, FTB also focuses on the fast emerging leagues in India and China.
FootTheBall.com has tied up in an exclusive partnership with a Silicon Valley social media company for creating the new ‘social network’ experience for its soccer fans – a town crier which will be your loudspeaker with gamification built into it.
“FootTheBall (FTB) is also in the process of building a ‘social network’ of connected fans who can share and interact with each other on one unified platform,” says Sumon K Chakrabarti, Founder and CEO of Buffalo Soldiers.
“FootTheBall.com will also have an encrypted club Fanzone – a platform for the Indian football fans to engage with and be a part of the global football community – to share their passion and interact about the beautiful game with other fans in one unified platform. We are working on a 90-day timeline to make our app go live. We believe it will be one of the biggest game changers ever for football/soccer fans. In that, you can also ask anyone to be your webcam if you are watching the game from the stadium or your local pub,” Chakrabarti added.
With its special ‘Fanzone’ feature FTB will give a platform for the 170 million+ Indian football fans in India to engage with and be a part of the global football community and conversation. The 20 million Indian football fans already active on social media will get a new window to experience the game and share their passion at the same time.
A mobile-first platform, FootTheBall.com will provide brands, clubs, publishers, and fans with a platform to generate and share football related content across web, mobile and social based channels. The second stage of the idea involves South Asia and creating a technology which will bridge the language-barrier and serve original stories in your language.
The start-up has also tied-up with a few pubs and game zones across the National Capital Region (NCR) in India where they will be giving out special edition EURO 2016 mugs after a lucky draw for fans during the finals of the ongoing UEFA EURO 2016 in France.
Because to use a cliché, our team lives and breathes football. So our founders have picked up their passion in life, and wants that to be inculcated in an unique way with football/soccer fans from across the globe.
APP Coming Soon!!!
