How football offers Afghans hope

How football offers Afghans hope | Broadcast Sport | Scoop.it

The soccer league is a great example of Afghan entrepreneurship. Afghans are good soccer players and have fielded a national team off and on since 1948. Games were primarily played outside the country, so few Afghans saw them. The genius of the A.P.L. was to recognize that, with 60 percent of Afghans now having access to television, soccer games could be broadcast nationally on the new networks and a proper league could be supported. Football fever has ensued. Here are some new heroes at last; buff, handsome, polite sportsmen with colorful uniforms and gelled hair. (The A.P.L. does not sponsor a women’s team, but Afghanistan does have a women’s national team.) The TV production is state of the art: 10 cameras, slo-mo, instant replay, sharp graphics with stats, lively announcers. The command post is a shipping container outside the stadium.

A United Kingdom-based company called fanatix has created a free iOS “social TV app” exclusively for sports fans, providing them a personalized stream of sports content – news updates, tweets, video clips, live scores and stats – and enabling easy sharing of that content to personalized groups, known within the app as “huddles,” which consist of group chats for sports fans. No longer does one have to swim through a Twitter stream to find relevant tweets or worry that his message will be lost among a plethora of others unrelated to the live game being watched.
