Premiership title contenders, Liverpool Football Club, are the latest organisation to offer a completely branded range of mobile phones through a new agreement with Affinity Internet Holdings telecom division.
The agreement means that Liverpool FC's extensive fan base will be offered a Siemens phone, packed with features such as a special club fascia, exclusive Liverpool FC screen saver, easy access to the Liverpool FC WAP site and one month's free 'Match 2U' text alerts. Loyal fans will be able to demonstrate their allegiance to the club whilst receiving breaking club news wherever they go.
For supporters that already have a mobile phone, Affinity has supplied the club with SIM cards and phone covers as separate products. The Liverpool FC mobiles will be promoted via the official fan club mailings and will be stocked in official Liverpool FC merchandise stores.
Liverpool FC follows major brands such as Tiny, Channel 5 and Queens Park Rangers FC in becoming a virtual mobile telco using Affinity's services, with all the value add, brand extension and revenue opportunities that the model delivers.
