Football day at SMW comes to Lagos



Part one of Football Day at SMW unfolded at the SS Lounge in Lagos today.

Featured were speakers from the Nigerian Sports Media who sat in three panels discussing the various trends in Football and Social Media.

Amongst others SuperSport’s Collins Udoh and Chisom Mbonu as well as supersport.com’s Iwedi Ojinmah offered insight as to how and why social media and sport have become such important partners. They also examined the success of the pidgin platform introduced for Afcon 2013 by the latter.

Also present was Eko Lagos and the unveiling of Gbamm - a new Mobile Social Network for Football Fans.

Gbamm! is a ‘2nd Screen’ mobile web application for watching English Premier League matches on TV. Gbamm! allows users to watch their teams while interacting simultaneously with their favourite commentators pundits; buddies and friends who support other teams.

This new platform just as DStv’s Waka, now brings football virtually to the door step of every user or subscriber in Nigeria’s ever growing virtual market.

“We are very excited to do the launch of Gbamm in Lagos at Social Media Week,” said Ayo Alli Founder & CEO of Gbamm! to supersport.com “Although aimed at the global fan-base of the global game, Nigeria is a very important market and incubator for Gbamm!” he added.

Social Media Football day continues with the red carpet coming out as well as the gala party tonight at the SS Lounge in Victoria Island.

Entry is free to the public.
