Vodafone in the UK has agreed a deal with Fast Web Media, the UK based operating company wholly owned by Total Sports Online ASA, to sponsor its soccer specific search site – Megasoccer.com.

The deal will see the Vodafone live! brand incorporated into a new-look Megasoccer.com, with special promotions and offers also displayed prominently on every page of the site.

This exclusive sponsorship deal underlines the success Megasoccer.com has enjoyed in its first year in the field of single-topic searching and also highlights Vodafone’s commitment to expand its association with football.

Michael Flynn, CEO of Fast Web Media, said: “We are delighted that a brand such as Vodafone have come on board as sponsors of Megasoccer.com.

Vodafone have always been at the forefront of technical innovation and their decision to sponsor Megasoccer, the web’s first football specific search engine, further highlights this. Megasoccer’s popularity continues to grow with people in over 160 countries – from the UK to Kazakhstan – now using the specialist search engine.”

The sponsorship is due to start at the beginning of February 2005, when the new-look Megasoccer.com in association with Vodafone goes live.
