The software allows its users to create and push static and animated content, to be published on every social network, in every desired language in less than 20 seconds. Since 2015, SOLIVE has been a total game-changer to leverage attention, fan engagement while creating a new monetization model for its clients and their sponsors.
“CONCACAF will become the first continental confederation to supplement its existing social media feed with premium contents produced via SOLIVE. We are constantly evolving to remain at the forefront of digital media, as we continue providing our fans with the best platforms to witness the game’s action in unique, timely and memorable ways. Our partnership with SOLIVE represents an opportunity to monetize our contents and to connect sponsors with our growing audience,” said Jean Manuel Jimenez, Director of Digital Products and Emerging Technologies of CONCACAF.
Even though the biennial Gold Cup for full national teams and the annual Scotiabank Champions League for clubs are CONCACAF’s most visible competitions, the confederation organizes championships at the under-17 under20 levels for men and women that lead to direct qualification for FIFA competitions. It also supports FIFA in coordinating qualifying tournaments for the World Cup, the Women’s World Cup and Olympic Games, plus the Beach Soccer and Futsal World Cups.
