Two years ago this week I launched the Total Football app for the 2010 World Cup - a self funded, self developed, independent passion project with the aim of providing in-depth live match stats and chalkboards to make watching football even better. It didn’t make me an ‘App Store Millionaire’ (in fact, I didn’t even break even) but the response and interest it generated gave me the motivation to stick with it.
Since then, I’ve been working hard to continue the app and managed to secure a number of partnerships to make the app possible across a range of competitions:
- the Champions League
- Premier League
- African Cup of Nations
And now there’s the follow on Euro 2012 Stats Zone app in partnership with FourFourTwo and Coral:
Before a ball has even been kicked in the tournament the app has been heavily promoted by Apple and reached as been as high as 30th in the overall free app download chart - something that I couldn’t have imagined when I started out on the app.
It’s a huge milestone and another step in what I’m hoping to be a continuing journey. I’m obviously aiming to continue expanding the competition coverage across all the major leagues and competitions (if you’re interested in partnering on any get in touch), hope to bring the app to other platforms too and have plenty more product ideas that I want to release in future.
Thanks to all the users for your incredible support and especially to Opta, FourFourTwo and all the great partners we’ve worked with so far.
Enjoy Euro 2012!
