Yahoo! provides FIFA Web site

Dec 05, 2005

Yahoo! said Monday it will partner with the Fédération Internationale de Football Association to set up a Web site to cover the upcoming soccer games.

The Internet search engine has started up www.FIFAworldcup.com to provide extensive online coverage of the World Cup tournament from the final draw on Dec. 9 in Leipzig, Germany, to determine the final players of the games until next summer, when the champion team will be crowned. The site is available in seven different languages.

"For the millions of passionate soccer fans worldwide, FIFAworldcup.com will serve as the most comprehensive site for information that users will not find anywhere else -- regardless of country, time zone or hemisphere," Jorge Consuegra, general manager of Yahoo!'s FIFA sponsorship, said in a news release. "With a wide range of video clips, breaking news, interviews and real-time results, the site enables consumers worldwide to engage with the biggest sporting event in the world," he added.
