Yahoo!7 has been chosen as the host of the official Qantas Socceroos 2006 FIFA World Cup website www.yahoo7.com.au/football ahead of the 2006 FIFA World Cup Germany™. Yahoo!7 also are the official sponsor of the FIFA World Cup™ globally.
Yahoo!7 has built the feature rich Qantas Socceroos website to support the team as they mount their campaign in Germany this year (yahoo7.com.au/football). The new site goes live today and is set to become the key online destination for Football fans in Australia as the team competes in their first FIFA World Cup™ finals for more than 30 years.
It will feature a vast selection of exclusive streamed video content, ranging from interviews with players and coaches to 2006 FIFA World Cup™ match video highlights from the official site www.fifaworldcup.com. It will also be the outlet through which all team news, merchandise, updates and media announcements will be first released to fans as well as a source for archived video footage of past matches.
Geoff Parmenter, Football Federation Australia-s Head of Marketing, Communications & Strategy, confirmed that the new site would be the only Australian media outlet that would upload and broadcast all Socceroos Media Unit material.
He added: “Millions of eyes are going to be glued to this site because it will be the only place Australian fans will be able to follow the progress of their team in Germany as the story unfolds and at times, day or night, that suit them.
“It will also be the first place that we issue important announcements and release all our team news from inside the camp. We-re expecting the streamed footage of interviews and match highlights to be extremely popular too because of the time difference between Australia and Germany - our supporters will be able to make sure they don-t miss a single kick of this historic FIFA World Cup™ campaign.”
Rohan Lund, Interim CEO, Yahoo!7, said: “We-re extremely proud to have been chosen to host the official Qantas Socceroos site as the squad prepares for the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ finals challenge. The demand for information, statistics, news and streamed footage is going to be huge and we-re looking forward to giving millions of Australians the best football experience on the web.”
