To continue its celebration of the upcoming football season, Likee, a pioneering global short video platform, will be introducing a dedicated event page to the Football World Cup 2022 under the platform’s community feature, Loop. The event page will bring together football fans and provides an interactive experience for users to support their favorite teams, join fan groups, watch text and animation matches, keep up with match agendas, and so much more.
Across the MENA region, football has always been regarded as one of the most loved sports.

The World Cup curated event page will provide users with all live scores, stats, and storylines to keep them up to speed with the upcoming tournament. Personalized news and notifications also make it easier for fans to follow their favourite teams and players. Moreover, the page is equipped with lightning-quick match updates to make sure that users never miss a goal or game, no matter where they are.
When Likers would open the event page on Likee, they would be encouraged to choose their favourite teams and join team fan groups to receive the latest updates and see what communities are discussing. Within the team fan groups, users would be able to chat with other members of group during the game while seeing the live score updates as well.
Team and players rankings along with additional statistics related to the number of goals, assists, fouls, possession, etc. would also be on view on the event page. To view live match developments, users can schedule notifications for their most awaited games and watch the live-text updates. Additional analysis of the games will also be presented under a separate tab to showcase the performance of the teams highlighting shot on targets, percentage of possession, number of corner kicks taken, to mention a few.
