As Canada hosts a record-breaking FIFA Women’s World Cup™, soccer fever is firmly taking hold as Team Canada progresses to the quarter-finals.
While the cheering in stadiums and living room continues with as much passion as ever, broadcasters worldwide are competing on a digital level for the coverage of the event.
TSN and RDS stand out from the crowd offering Canadian soccer fans the ability to follow the action in real-time, both in English and French, through websites designed and developed by digital sport’s leader deltatre.
Chris Collie, Associate Director, Digital at TSN, said “Choosing deltatre for the digital coverage of the FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™ felt natural after the work done together on Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games, London 2012 Summer Olympic Games and the UEFA EURO 2012™. Their ability to provide a flawless service even in high-pressure environments is a most valuable asset when dealing with major live events”.
Carlo de Marchis, Chief Product Officer at deltatre, said: “When it comes to digital sport, deltatre loves Canada and Canada loves deltatre. During this FIFA Women’s World Cup™, fans are having direct access to the heart of the action, both through seamless video streaming, and through our LiveBlogging tool; one of deltatre’s storytelling platforms that integrates text, pictures, video and social media content.
Forge, deltatre’s solution for responsive websites, has been key to designing a smooth user experience and developing the platform in a very short space of time, easily integrating into the TSN/RDS digital ecosystem. We hope to help Canadian audiences enjoy such an important sporting event and we are proud that TSN and RDS put their trust in us once again”.
In the quarter-finals, the home team will face England at the BC Place Stadium in Vancouver, and for those elsewhere in Canada, through the digital platforms of TSN and RDS.
