FIFA Plus Features: What you can watch and read on it?

 

The key proposition of the app is that it will stream over 40,000 live matches per year for free. This will consist of matches from “100 Member Associations across all six confederations, including 11,000 women’s matches”. From the initial month, there would be 1400 live matches each month and in time, this may increase too.

To keep fans enthralled, there is a host of original content like a documentary film called ‘Ronaldinho: The Happiest Man in the World’, a 6-part documentary about Dani Alves called ‘Dani Crazy Dream’ and a lot more like this.

Then there is FIFA+ Archive which as the name suggests, is a library of more than 2,000 hours (2500 videos) of old but cherished football content. These will date back to 1950s and will include “full-match replays, highlights, goals, and magical moments”.

Next up, you also get to keep tabs across 400 men's competitions and 65 women's competitions within the FIFA+ Match Centre.

In the media release, the federation also notes that FIFA+ users will be entertained with “interactive games including votes, quizzes, fantasy games, and predictors”.

In an interview with the Variety, FIFA+ chief Charlotte Burr said, “We’ll be strategically extending — so we will be potentially going into gaming, social community, and potentially subscription depending on where this goes and where the industry disruption heads”.
