Liverpool FC are set to become the first Barclays Premier League club to feature in Miniclip’s hit mobile game, Soccer Stars™. Players will be able to compete as Liverpool Football Club, taking on other players and clubs from around the world.
Soccer Stars™, the free online multiplayer game, was released shortly before the 2014 FIFA World Cup on Android, iOS and Amazon devices. Developed by Miniclip, a leading digital games company, it quickly became the #1 sports app in the UK.
From early 2015, Liverpool FC fans from across the globe will be able to take to the virtual pitch and join more than 1 million players who play Soccer Stars each day.
“Having a Club with Liverpool FC’s pedigree in Soccer Stars™ is fantastic,” said Saad Choudri, Miniclip’s Chief Commercial Officer. “It is great to partner with a Club that is looking to reach its fans in such an innovative way, especially as Soccer Stars™ is one of the biggest multiplayer soccer titles in the world and continues to grow.”
Matthew Baxter, Chief Media Officer at Liverpool FC, commented: “We’re delighted to be the first Premier League Club to have teamed up with Miniclip on this already popular game. Soccer Stars™ is a really fun and interactive game which our fans are sure to love. As a Club, we’re always looking for new and innovative digital platforms to reach and engage with our supporters.”
Miniclip, with over 70 million monthly players across mobile, social and online platforms, is set to add the Liverpool FC items to Soccer Stars™ later this year.
