1 Shares

This week FIFA unveiled a free digital platform called ‘FIFA Plus‘ that is expected to offer an engaging experience for football fans across the globe.

Launched on Tuesday, this week at FIFA Headquarters, FIFA Plus delivers a mix of live soccer matches, archived content, original features, and much more. It’s available globally on the web and mobile devices, in five languages (English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish) with more to follow. The platform aims to make football enjoyable and fun.

According to FIFA, football’s world governing body, over 29,000 men’s matches and over 11,000 women’s matches will be streamed on FIFA+ in 2022, totalling over 40,000 matches. The first slate of FIFA+ Originals will feature Ronaldinho, Dani
Alves, Ronaldo Nazário, Romelu Lukaku, Lucy Bronze and Carli Lloyd, among others.

FIFA Plus will provide access to live football matches from every corner of the world, interactive games, news, tournament information, ground-breaking, unrivalled video content delivering truly global storytelling around the men’s and women’s games and much more.

FIFA is the first sports federation ever to offer such an extensive streaming and content experience to its fans. FIFA President Gianni Infantino commented:

“FIFA+ represents the next step in our vision to make football truly global and inclusive, and it underpins FIFA’s core mission of expanding and developing football globally,” said Infantino, “This project represents a cultural shift in the way different types of football fans want to connect with and explore the global game and has been a fundamental part of my Vision 2020-2023. It will accelerate the democratisation of football and we are delighted to share it with fans.”

Live Matches: By the end of 2022, FIFA+ will be streaming the equivalent of 40,000 live games per year from 100 Member Associations across all six confederations, including 11,000 women’s matches. It also offers live coverage from Europe’s top-flight leagues to previously unserved competitions from around the world in men’s, women’s and youth football. From launch, 1,400 matches will be live-streamed monthly on FIFA+, rising rapidly.

FIFA Plus is a deal-breaker

The ad-supported service is free for now, but that could change in time as the federation continues to monitor how fans react to its latest digital platform. Aside from being free, FIFA Plus will also offer archived content.

FIFA+ Archive: Ahead of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, FIFA+ will be home to every FIFA World Cup and FIFA Women’s World Cup match ever recorded on camera, totalling more than 2,000 hours of archive content. For the first time ever, this entire archive will be available to fans.

Fans will have the ability to watch full-match replays, highlights, goals and magical moments all in one place. The FIFA+ Archive will launch with more than 2,500 videos dating back to the 1950s, with many more to come throughout the year.

Match Centre, News and Gaming:

The Match Centre will allow football fans to immerse themselves in rich football data across 400 men’s competitions and 65 women’s competitions. A daily feed of news from around the world of men’s and women’s football will also complement and offer additional updates. Throughout the year, fans will enjoy interactive games including votes, quizzes, fantasy games and predictors.

Other features offered by FIFA Plus include FIFA+ Originals which will provide unrivalled content delivering global storytelling around the men’s and women’s games. It will have feature-full-length documentaries, docuseries, talk shows and shorts – localised into 11 languages, telling stories from local grassroots to national teams and footballing heroes past and present from more than 40 countries.

The content on the FIFA Plus platform will continue to grow and evolve in 2022, providing fresh, globally relevant as well as localised content across the year. From launch, it will bring the game to life through exclusive, world-class titles including Ronaldinho: The Happiest Man in the World,  Lionel Messi, Frank Rijkaard and Carles Puyol all feature and reveal what this FIFA Legend means to them.

There is more to come from the platform. From launch, FIFA+ will be available across all web and mobile devices, and across a range of connected devices soon. It will be available in five language editions (English, French, German, Portuguese, and Spanish), with an additional six languages to follow in June of 2022.
