FanPic at All Ireland Football Semi-Final
22nd August 2013
eircom, proud sponsors of the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship today launched the eircom GAA Football FanPic initiative. The initiative offers GAA Football fans the chance to experience even more at the upcoming GAA Football Championship Semi-Finals and the All-Ireland Football Final.
eircom is bringing the 360 degree picture centred initiative to Croke Park for the first time at the GAA Football Senior Championship Semi-Finals and Final. The simple platform allows fans to search and spot themselves in a 360 degree photograph taken of the crowds at each game and then tag or share their photo via their Facebook account. FanPic has had a huge uptake from fans attending other major sporting events in stadiums across the world.
Attendees at the upcoming GAA Football All-Ireland Semi-Finals and Final are invited to tag and then share their ultimate FanPic. Fans just need to log on to www.experiencemore/fanpic from 4.00pm the day after each game to spot and tag themselves amongst the crowd. Fans that tag themselves at the Semi-Final matches are in with a chance to win VIP tickets to the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship Final. The interactive platform also allows fans to spot and tag friends providing fans with the ultimate GAA Football All-Ireland Championship memento.
GAA Football fans unable to attend each game will also have an opportunity to win VIP tickets to the All-Ireland Final by playing “Find our GAA Stars” game. The game challenges fans to spot one of eircom’s GAA Ambassadors; Colm “The Gooch” Cooper, Ciaran Whelan, Michael Murphy, Donie Shine, Mickey Harte or Johnny Doyle in the crowd, and answer a simple question. Each game will feature different GAA ambassadors for fans to find. Fans that play the game after the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship Final will be in with a chance to win VIP tickets to the International Rules Series 2013 in Croke Park on October 26th.
Kevin White, Managing Director of eircom consumer, said “To mark the end of another thrilling season, we are really excited to launch the eircom GAA Football FanPic initiative. We believe the service adds another element to the upcoming GAA Football Semi-Finals and All-Ireland Football Final for GAA fans. FanPic is just one of the many fan-centered initiatives on our www.experiencemore.ie website. We encourage fans to make the best use of the service and relive their Croke Park moment by tagging their photo to be in with a chance to win tickets to the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship Final and tickets to the International Rules Series.”
Commenting at the launch of the eircom GAA Football FanPic initiative, Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Liam Ó Néill, said, “On behalf of the GAA and the team at Croke Park, we are delighted that eircom, a proud sponsor of the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship, is bringing FanPic to Croke Park.
The interactive service is something that has been used in international stadiums across the world for other major sporting events, so we are very much looking forward to working with eircom to bring the eircom Football FanPic initiative to Croke Park stadium for the first time ever.”
