Online Football Video Newcomer StreamUK Shortlisted For Three 2012 Football Business Awards
LONDON, September 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
The online media and streaming specialist StreamUK has been nominated as a finalist in
three separate categories for the 2012 Football Business Awards.
Approximately a year ago, StreamUK was chosen by Liverpool FC to revamp its online
video offering lfc.tv, based on the StreamUK online video platform StreamMP. Liverpool FC
recently claimed its online video offering is the most successful online video
subscription service of any football club in the world
adding further credibility to the media platform as well as StreamUK and Liverpool FC’s
Liverpool FC became the case study for StreamUK’s shortlisting in Best use of Social
Media in Football, Best / Most Innovative use of Technology by Clubs and Best Business
Serving Football – over GBP2m turnover. StreamUK was mistakenly shortlisted in the ‘up to
2m’ category after a successful nomination from an external voter. However, StreamUK
alerted the awards organiser’s of the company’s turnover and the listing was transferred
to the ‘over 2m’ category.
The winners of the inaugural Football Business Awards will be announced on the 8th
November at the home of Chelsea FC, Stamford Bridge. Over half of the premiership clubs
are involved with the 2012 awards, as well as a strong interest from abroad, with entries
from as far afield as Belgium, Italy, Denmark, Russia, Brazil and USA.
The Football Business Awards have been designed to celebrate excellence and
acknowledge success in the business of football. The Awards will recognise the essential
role that business plays in football, the positive impact of football on the community and
vital role played by the businesses which serve the game.
