0

Globacom has launched a service that will enable fans and followers of the world’s most entertaining football league, the English Premier League (EPL) in Nigeria to access whatever information they want about the league through their Glo lines.
Known as the EPL Content Service, followers of the league who are on the Glo Mobile network will be able to download current and past information pertaining to anything or anyone that has anything to do with the EPL.
Information that could be accessed include historical facts, club facts and records, including frequently asked questions, players’ profiles, players and ex-players’ information such as nick names, hair cut styles and other exciting details, whether serious or trivial.
For example, the subscriber, by interacting with the platform, could discover that Manchester United has won the highest number of League titles (20), the last of which was won in the 2013-14 season when Sir Alex Ferguson retired as a manager and that Bryan Robson was the captain of Manchester United for 12 years, longer than any other player.
EPL fans could also find out that George Best was known as the “fifth Beatle” for his iconic haircut and was the first footballer to significantly develop an off-the-field media profile; and that Sir Alex Ferguson is Manchester United’s longest-serving manager (26 years, 194 days), and that he presided over 1,500 club matches from November 6, 1986 to May 19, 2013.
To connect with the service, all the EPL fans have to do is to send the name of their clubs to 54889, using their Glo lines. For example, ManU to 54889 or Chelsea to 54889.
For now, the clubs available on the platform are Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City.
In a statement signed by Globacom’s head of Value Added Services, Mr. Nagasai Vishwanath, subscription for the service costs N25 weekly and he promised that the company will later add more clubs to the platform.
