Enpocket launches Total Football - the ultimate soccer application for the mobile phone
Launch of the first truly global branded application for the ‘beautiful game’

9th March 2006 -- CeBIT, Germany - Enpocket, the global mobile media company, today launched ‘Total Football’. Total Football puts detailed statistics and scores at football fanatics’ fingertips. The application is now available, for the first time, on a range of BenQ-Siemens handsets.

Total Football, built and powered by the Enpocket Content Engine, offers real-time access to an unparalleled range of football information. It provides scores, tables and detailed profiles of teams and players from over 40 leagues across 29 countries, as well as information on tournaments such as the upcoming Fifa World Cup 2006 and the UEFA Champions league.

Available in 15 languages, Total Football can be downloaded now for a wide range of BenQ-Siemens handsets from mobile internet site: Visitors to the BenQ Mobile stand at CeBIT (hall 26, stand C32) can also get a free download of Total Football.

“Soccer is not just for Saturdays. Football fans want access to information on their phones anywhere, anytime,” said Clemens Joos, CEO of BenQ Mobile. “Customers are increasingly looking to explore their handsets’ capabilities beyond making voice calls. Enpocket’s Total Football enables us to offer even more for the mobile and perfectly compliments our soccer engagements with Real Madrid and Ronaldo.”

Total Football is a Java application that resides in the handset’s menu, providing in-depth coverage in one easy to use mobile application. Once users select an option from the main menu, they can dynamically access information over the air such as:

  • Thousands of player and team profiles
  • Full career histories in graphical formats
  • Top scorer charts
  • Team head-to-head statistics

    “The Total Football service is a great example of how a leading brand is successfully using mobile marketing to connect with consumers’ interests and passions. By offering the application, our clients can effectively convey their brand values within a personal service,” said Mike Baker, CEO and President, Enpocket.

    The Enpocket Content Engine dynamically pulls real-time updates of the latest international football statistics into the application from Touchline Data Systems, the key provider of football information to media and online betting companies and to the professional football community.

    Beginning in April, BenQ Mobile will also be promoting Total Football on its web site, and the application will be preloaded on handsets to be launched across various markets later in 2006/2007.
