Michel Bais, managing director Mobile Viewpoint: “We see that football cubs are looking for new means to engage with their fans and to provide attractive content on multiple platforms on a daily basis. Not only of their first teams, but also for lower league and youth teams. Our technology enables this in a cost-efficient way and unlocks new ways to promote their club.”
Feyenoord is a professional football club from Rotterdam, founded on July 19, 1908, which plays in the Eredivisie. The home base is Stadium Feyenoord, which is popularly called De Kuip. The football team is one of the three traditional top clubs in the Netherlands.
Feyenoord won the national championship fifteen times, thirteen times the KNVB Cup, once the European Cup I (the forerunner of the Champions League), twice the UEFA Cup and once the World Cup. Partly because Feyenoord was the first (and until now the last) Dutch club that won an international prize, it plays historically a leading role in Dutch football.
