When MyCujoo came knocking on the door to OFC Headquarters in 2017 little was known about the football streaming platform in the Oceania region.
Since then the relationship between the two organisations has flourished resulting in the signing of an important partnership that will see MyCujoo take on exclusive streaming rights to all OFC Competitions for the next two years.
OFC General Secretary Franck Castillo was delighted to oversee OFC and MyCujoo put pen to paper on an agreement which should see football in Oceania grow in stature.
“The support we have had from MyCujoo since the beginning has been wonderful and I am certain this is just the beginning of what will be a long relationship,” Castillo said.
“This is an exciting opportunity for us to build on the digital footprint of football in Oceania and it is an honour to be doing so with a company at the forefront of digital streaming worldwide.”
MyCujoo is a unified streaming solution for football, enabling users to live stream, upload, syndicate and monetise data and content on a dedicated platform from anywhere in the world.
OFC and MyCujoo have collaborated on numerous OFC competitions since August 2017 from almost every OFC Member Association including New Caledonia, Fiji, American Samoa, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu.
“We are very excited to further develop our relationship with OFC with this exclusive partnership.” said Pedro Presa, CEO and co-founder of MyCujoo.
“This agreement is the latest step toward our goal of closing the gap between grassroot and elite level football. We can’t wait to share the several hundreds of thousands of talented players in this region with our global audience, and continue to bring the world of football closer together.”
The players will be a specific focus for MyCujoo, with new features empowering players featured on the platform to claim their digital profile, own and share their individual content. This will allow both MyCujoo and OFC to engage with the player community and encourage these communities to generate their own content.
The appetite for Oceania football continues to grow globally with over 22,0000 people having watched the final of the OFC U-19 Championship between New Zealand and Tahiti, while Team Wellington’s 6-0 victory over Lautoka in the first leg final of the 2018 OFC Champions League has been viewed by more than 21,000 people.
Launched in 2014, MyCujoo completely subverts the traditional sports broadcasting model by providing free broadcast technology to rights-holders and free content to viewers. Pursuing this unique model, the platform is on track to become the world’s biggest community of football fans, players, clubs and federations. By allowing players at every level of the game to ‘claim’ and share footage of themselves, as well as share their profiles with friends, families and fans, MyCujoo aims to create a huge network of closely-bonded football fans and participants.
MyCujoo’s technology allows live streams to be broadcast from a device as simple as a mobile phone to multiple media including MyCujoo’s platform; a user app for Android and iOS; and embedded streams on rights-holder and third-party platforms.
MyCujoo technology is available at no cost to rights-holders and the content it enables is also free to viewers, removing almost all of the barriers to football clubs who want to share their content, as well as to fans who want to consume it. With users in more than 200 countries across six continents, MyCujoo is the world’s leading football streaming service and is empowering federations, leagues and clubs to live-stream their competitions and matches, as well as enabling the creation of sports communities at a national, regional and hyper-local level.
MyCujoo provides opportunities for the distribution, monetisation, and commercialisation of rights-holders own data and content, and offers the sports world a chance to be valued and appreciated, anywhere and by anyone.
