Being a Whitecaps FC Fan Just Got Better with Bell
VANCOUVER, BC - Fans of Vancouver Whitecaps FC will be able to get closer to their team anytime and anywhere thanks to Bell's commitment to make all Whitecaps FC matches available live on Bell mobile phones. It's the first time ever that all home and away matches of a Major League Soccer (MLS) club will be available live on mobile.
"Being a fan of the Whitecaps just got better with Bell," said Loring Phinney, Vice President, Corporate Marketing for Bell. "We committed to an enhanced experience for soccer fans when we announced our jersey sponsorship, and we're thrilled to assist the Whitecaps in being the first MLS club with access to live matches on the screen of the fan's choice."
With TSN already announced as the MLS Official Broadcaster, Whitecaps FC fans will have their choice of watching matches in High Definition on TSN and TSN2, all Whitecaps FC games on the regional broadcast and now on Bell mobile phones and tablets with Bell Mobile TV.
"We promised Whitecaps FC fans that, together with our partners, we would provide a unique experience for our inaugural season in Major League Soccer and today, thanks to Bell, we're delivering on that promise," stated Paul Barber, Chief Executive Officer, Vancouver Whitecaps FC. "Bell is a world leader in creating great experiences across multiple screens in top level sporting environments. With this historic announcement, our club and our fans will be the beneficiaries of Bell's innovative market leadership."
In addition to all Whitecaps FC matches, Bell mobile customers will also have access to 24 MLS matches featuring Toronto FC and Vancouver Whitecaps FC on TSN and TSN2, as well as the MLS All-Star Game, MLS Playoffs and the MLS Cup.
Bell Mobility customers can purchase 10 hours of the Mobile TV Sports package for $5 per month. This includes access to live games and highlights from the NHL, NFL and now MLS Official Broadcaster matches and Vancouver Whitecaps FC.
