Matchday 2.0 app

Phase 2 of Matchday saw the scrum of digital and rugby push even harder, with more features, and an extension on to tablet devices

“Get closer to the England Rugby action with the Matchday app from O2, now available on tablet and phone.

Watch exclusive video and behind-the-scenes footage from the England camp. Check out in-depth coverage along with live score and statistics information for each of the RBS 6 Nations fixtures.

The new Event Timeline feature combines real-time text commentary with video, images and social messages to give a unique second screen experience.

For each England game in the RBS 6 Nations the app also gives you a live Ref!Link feed direct from the ref’s mic to your device, so you get a unique insight into game. All this from the comfort of your own home or even if you choose to watch the game in the pub.”

Nice to have been involved in this… we designed the app in record time. Well done to the team. This is the phase 2/evolution of last years mobile app.
