Microsoft and Major League Soccer (MLS) have signed a multiyear agreement. Throughout the course of the agreement, Windows 8 and MLS will continue to create cutting-edge experiences for soccer fans in the stadium and online, says Microsoft.
As part of MLS’ initiative “the smartest league,” the updated app for Windows 8 will feature exclusive content and this season’s schedule, standings, highlights, play-by-play, roster lineups, game stats, goals, cards and substitutions.
In addition, with the Windows 8 Live Tiles, fans will be able to customize their experiences to focus on their favorite club news.
Kathy Carter (President, Soccer United Marketing, MLS): MLS supporters are young and active, and technology plays a central role in their lives.
Fans can also try out Windows 8 on the Microsoft Surface tablet in-stadium at more than 40 games throughout the season.
