The Semi Finals of the Orange CAF Champions League 2013 and the Orange CAF Confederation Cup 2013 are just round the corner. In a bid to bring as much publicity to this event as possible, the CAF alongside marketing and media rights agency SPORTFIVE Africa have come together to bring to fans the “Pepsi FootballNOW” live prediction game alongside with Official Sponsor Pepsi in an app that will be free for download from the Google PlayStore and Apple’s iTunes Store FREE OF CHARGE.
Starting from the semi-finals of this tournament, viewers and fans who downloaded and use the app by creating a profile will be able to predict the outcome of each match. Once the match kicks-off, each player will also be prompted to answer some questions around key plays in the game of football such as corner kicks, free kicks and penalties. Gamers will earn “Pepsi Points” for correct predictions allowing them to collect Pepsi FootballNOW badges: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum, according to the points won during a single match. During competitions, new badges will be unlocked.
Numerous prizes including a tablet and tickets to the finals of the two competitions and official match balls will be up for grabs. New functions will be released soon and a new version will be available for the next season including for the Orange CAF Super Cup. Following the official Orange African Cup of Nations, SOUTH AFRICA 2013 App, CAF and SPORTFIVE Africa are once again using mobile platforms to help bring African football to life for as many fans as possible, by creating an innovative new “second screen” experience.
