The World Cup is all the rage this summer – that goes without saying, but we’re going to say it anyways and really drive the point home.
To immerse itself in the excitement, Microsoft’s Internet Explorer platform has teamed up with ESPN and created an ESPN FC World Cup Essentials to keep fans informed about the 2014 World Cup.
The launch aligns with the Rethink IE initiative which was designed to highlight the innovative possibilities of the internet. The ESPN FC World Cup Essentials hub includes 3D artwork designed by HTML5 and WebGL. The solution also offers comprehensive match coverage and schedules, featured articles, videos, polls and prediction and news about players and teams. It allows browsing from mobile phones, desktops and laptops.
Furthermore, with the ESPN FC World Cup Essentials, fans can revisit memorable games from decades ago, learn chants and traditions, follow social media updates and interact with viewers live.
The 2014 Fifa World Cup runs from June 12 to July 13 and takes place throughout various location in Brazil. Spain and the Netherlands play today at 3pm EST, and Chile and Australia play at 6pm EST. Full schedule info can be found at www.fifa.com.
