Dutch soccer’s top-tier Eredivisie has today (February 9) launched a new mobile app to bolster its digital offering.
The league, in announcing the launch of this new digital platform, said it hoped to “strengthen the fan experience and bring Dutch soccer fans closer to the competition and its 18 clubs.”
The app was developed alongside KPN, the Dutch telecoms heavyweight, and digital creative agency TDE, and is now available for free download from both the Apple Store and Google Play.
The app offers a personalized timeline where supporters can access the latest content and updates from their Eredivisie club of choice, as well as all live scores, extensive statistics, official news, and updates from the league’s official esports competition (the KPN eDivisie).
It will additionally feature Eredivisie highlights from the league’s archive, while supporters can also sync their team’s schedule to phone calendars.
The league has also claimed that the app offers interactivity, with fans able to participate in nominating the official man of the match accolade from games, as well as the goal of the year prize.
The league has described the launch of this new mobile platform as “the next step in its digital development, making the competition even more accessible …”
KPN is a major Eredivisie sponsor through a four-year deal set to expire in May 2025.
Last month, the league extended a partnership with blockchain fantasy platform Sorare until 2025.
