Premier League Launch New App For 20th Anniversary

By iSportconnect | April 13, 2012

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Premier League, a new app called the Premier League 20 Seasons App has been created for users of the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, featuring 100 of the top moments from the past two decades of top flight English football.

The app provides football fans around the world with a new way to watch some of the most memorable moments from the Premier League’s history.

Each of the 100 one-minute clips features a memorable highlight, including the first ever goal in the top flight, scored by Sheffield United’s Brian Deane against Manchester United at the start of the 1992/93 season.

Other highlights include Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick against Manchester City, David Beckham’s goal from the halfway line against Wimbledon in 1996/97 and Arsenal’s team of Invincibles in 2003/04. The app features at least five clips from every Premier League season.

Each of the clips are also accompanied by a quiz question via an interactive ‘q’ button, as well as an opportunity to win Premier League prizes via competitions within the app.

The launch of the app precedes the Premier League’s 20 Season Awards, the shortlist of which will be announced in mid-April, with an award ceremony at the end of the Premier League season in May.

The Premier League 20 Seasons App was produced by the Premier League’s production partner IMG Media, part of IMG Worldwide and developed by Mobile Interactive Group (MIG), a Velti Company, a global mobile and technology solutions company.

The Premier League 20 Seasons App is available from the App Store on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
