Will 3 deliver the World Cup to your mobile?

Mobile phones

With the Premiership season coming to its usual predictable end, all eyes are focused on the excitement of the World Cup – and we’re still trying to work out if anyone’s going to give us this feast of football on our mobile.

By far the most promising so far is 3. They’re still being a bit cagey with what’s on offer, but recent noises from the 3 camp indicate we might – just might – get the goals to our handsets.

Marketing Director of 3, Graeme Oxby, was recently quoted as saying: "3 has a strong link with football – our customers already enjoy premiership goals and champions league goals.  The World Cup is a huge event, so it won’t be a surprise that 3 is  planning a compelling world cup service, which we’ll be announcing shortly. At this stage, we can share that it will include some specially-commissioned daily programming and a special ‘World Cup’ edition of 3’s successful SeeMeTV service – where fans will be invited to submit their mini-movies and blogs."

"We will be announcing our full line-up in due course."

Which sounds to us like they’ll probably have some action on the network. As soon as we find out for sure, you’ll be the first to know. 

In the meantime, if you can’t live without a daily dose of the World Cup, I’d recommend you visit Who Ate All The Bratwurst – Shiny’s dedicated World Cup blog.
