The agreement calls for the Germany-based digital platform to share the AFA’s original content on its website and app, which will be accessible to fans no matter where they are.
OneFootball will also host all editorial content published on the AFA website, such as the most recent news on Argentina’s national soccer teams, as well as live statistics and score updates in Spanish. AFA’s news will appear as official content in a user’s stream and will be identified by the national governing body’s logo.
AFA’s content will also be distributed to OneFootball’s publisher network, which includes over 110 media outlets worldwide.
Claudio Tapia, President of the AFA, said, “This strategic agreement with OneFootball allows us to continue with our digital expansion globally, offering a direct communication channel to fans and the brands that accompany us. AFA is a brand with a strong global presence that, for some time now, has experienced international growth and commercial expansion hand in hand with leading and innovative brands, such as OneFootball.
He added, “This alliance that begins today will undoubtedly bring, in the short term, new and innovative additional releases for all fans of the Argentine national team in a year as important as the one that has begun.”
Tom Mueller, Vice President of Partnerships at OneFootball, commented, “Argentina is a hugely passionate footballing nation and we’re thrilled to be making the Argentine Football Association our first federation partner in Latin America. In joining the OneFootball network, official content from the AFA will now reach a new audience of young football fans in Argentina, and millions more around the world.”
