MUMBAI: The BBC announced today that it will provide a more personalised, interactive digital service across BBC.com, BBC World News and the BBC Sport app to bring global audiences closer to the fans, teams and world famous players of Uefa Euro 2016 than ever before. BBC Sport app users will be able to personalise their BBC Euro 2016 service on their devices by setting match alerts for all 24 teams and can choose whether to receive notifications on the line-ups, kick-offs, goals, half-time scores and results. Users can add the Euro 2016 teams to their Quick Links for easy access to all the content about their favourite nations. Digital audiences can also customise what type of content, and how much content, will show on their homepage on the BBC Sport app and online, via the My Sport service. The BBC will launch two new interactive features for Euro 2016 – the match Predictor and Team Selector. The Euro 2016 Predictor allows fans to use their knowledge and intuition to predict the results of all matches throughout the tournament. Audiences can set up their own league with friends and colleagues to see where they stand in the overall pecking order, and compare their results to those of the BBC’s expert pundits. With the Team Selector, users can put themselves in the shoes of international managers like Roy Hodgson and pick their own starting 11 for key matches during the four-week tournament. Users will be able to share and compare their selections with BBC Sport pundits and friends on social media. BBC Sport’s social media accounts will keep followers in touch with the key action on the field – and moments off it. Facebook Live streams, featuring Gary Lineker, Rio Ferdinand, Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer, Dan Walker and other expert pundits will take audiences behind-the-scenes of the BBC studio in the heart of Paris. They will also discuss the big topics of debate and analysis before matches and highlights shows. Euro 2016 fans across the world can join the match day build up on ‘Sportsday Live’ on BBC.com from 12.30 pm every day to get the latest updates, comments and opinions from BBC reporters in France. And BBC.com/euro16’s live text commentary will showcase the best minute-by-minute coverage of every match as well as showcasing the best text and video analysis from the BBC’s internationally recognised pundits including Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand. The live page will also feature breaking team news and fan contributions via social media.
