O2 finds World Cup friend

Football365 in your pocket

TEAMtalk Media, ukbetting's content arm, has done a deal with O2 to set up a mobile football community.

Football365 Chat should go live just before the World Cup. It will let O2 subscribers keep up to speed with the action and get in touch with other supporters. The site will play a big role in O2's mobile content coverage for the competition. It is ukbetting's first deal to provide mobile chat.

ukbetting has already done deals with Orange and T-Mobile to provide wallpapers, video clips, animations and, most disturbingly, downloadable terrace chants.

It is also launching Football365 in Germany on the 3 network. ukbetting owns 10 sports sites including rivals.net, sportinglife.com, sportal.com, planetfl.com, as well as cricket, football and golf365.
