FIFA is pleased to announce the launch of FIFA+, a free, high-performance digital platform designed to help football fans around the world live their passion for the game intensely.
Launching today, FIFA+ will feature live matches from leagues from around the world, interactive games, news, information on competitions, never-before-seen video content in unparalleled quality, international men’s and women’s football, and much more. Never before has a sports federation provided its community with such a large amount of streaming content and videos.
The FIFA+ platform is the next step in our vision to make football truly global and inclusive. “It helps FIFA achieve its primary mission, which is to develop football around the world,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino. This project represents a paradigm shift in the different ways it offers to interact with football on a global scale. It is an essential component of my 2020-2023 vision. FIFA + will accelerate the democratization of football and we are happy to share this with football fans. »
