LFP extends Netco Sports relationship with French football

Netco Sports strong relationship with French Professional football takes another step forward with the release of the official Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) app

After having already launched leading official apps for a handful of professional French football clubs, the LFP confides in Netco Sports the creation and development of the official Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) app. The state of the art app provides fans with direct access to all Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 content including multimedia, match centers, social media, live scoring and more!

In the lead up to the 2011/12 season, the app is warmly welcomed to the store; an instant success, it is downloaded over 200,000 times in less than a week! The app would be eventually selected by Apple as the Best of app Store 2011 in the “Sports” category.

 

The following year, to kick-off the 2012/13 Ligue 1 season, the LFP launches its first official iPad app building on the award winning success of the Smartphone app release a year earlier.

The iPad app capitalizes on the additional real-estate of iPad screens providing fans with enriched interactive functionality:

  • Fans can follow all on-field action including team line-ups, posted one hour before kickoff
  • Connect with other fans, voice your opinion or comment on Twitter via a built-in dedicated match hashtag directly within the app
  • Netco Sports designed a dedicated Stat Center for the iPad format, providing detailed statistics in an easy to read, visual infographic format

 

In 2013/14 video content was added to the LFP app, creating a veritable comprehensive match companion app, providing fans around the world with the most enriched LFP content available

Fans can now watch exclusive videos from Ligue 1, Ligue 2, and Coupe de la Ligue action with the most up-to-date comprehensive coverage ever created around French football.
