Lisbon, 17 August 2001 As from today, Telecel Vodafone will be providing a ‘Goals Live’ Service to enable customers to follow the games of the Premier League and National football teams via text messages. The competitions covered are the Premier Clubs League, the Portugal Cup, the Cândido de Oliveira SuperCup and the European Championship qualifying rounds. The Service will also provide information on all goals scored in matches played by the national team. All the content of the ‘Goals Live’ Service is supplied by the Netc Vizzavi portal.
To activate the service, customers simply need to send a text message to 1566 with the name of the desired club or of the National Team. From then onwards, customers will be alerted immediately a goal is scored in any of the matches in which the selected team is playing. Messages will contain information on the scoring team, the scorer, the minute of the game when the goal was scored, and the score. At the end of the match, a text message will be sent with the final score. Customers can sign up for as many teams as they wish.
The ‘Goals Live’ service will also enable customers to check scores in real time without having to sign up for a particular team. Telecel Vodafone customers need only send a text message to 1566 reading RESULTADO ‘equipa’ (SCORE ‘team’).
The charge for the Service is 50 escudos (0.25 euros) per message received containing live information on goals.
All figures include VAT at the applicable rate.
