By Community | May 28, 2014

WISeKey SA and the Swiss Football Association (SFA) have announced a new partnership that sees a new official SFV ASF App developed of the Swiss National Team.

The SFV ASF App generates digital identities for fans and harnesses original content created by the players and the SFA via social media platforms, and further enriches this with exclusive content from the players and the SFA. WISeKey has concluded similar projects with Real Madrid for their fans in China, FC Barcelona, Flamengo and Vasco football fans all over the world, and lately with ORACLE TEAM USA, winners of the 2013 America’s Cup. WISeKey has currently 12 more clubs joining WISfans, to be announced shortly, creating a global identity ecosystem for digital certified fans.

The Swiss National Team will be the first national football team using this technology and it will be very beneficial to capture all social media interactions around the team.

“We are delighted to launch the SFV ASF Official App of the Swiss National Team with the SFA, allowing them to connect with their fans’ ecosystem and federate all Swiss fans under one app. This new app is also a great way for WISeKey and the Swiss National Team to leverage their online presence and is part of the strategy to bring WISeKey Cyber Security services directly to Swiss consumers”, said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey.

“This new SFV ASF App allows us to have a new and innovative relationship with our fans while we increase our digital footprint. With this app the Swiss National Team definitely enters into the social media mobile world, developing one more tool of relationship between its members and fans,” said Alex Miescher, General Secretary.
