Football fans all over the world are gearing up for the World Cup in Brazil kicking off on the 12th of June.

The Goalwire Sport Bar will feature a screen where football scores will be streamed and updated in real time, allowing fans to hang out and follow the games. For the fans there will be outfits in the teams’ colors, flags and other accessories available to further show their support of their favorite teams.

This is the first time Friendbase opens up the app for partners to come join Friendbase creating a live event and time limited activity. Head developer and founder Andréas Rehnberg says: “This is an important step for us in the development of Friendbase. Our aim for the near future is to have many ongoing events in Friendbase so people all over the world can meet up around a passion, regardless if it is sports, music or fashion. Over the next few months there will be many more events and activities to come with several new partnerships”.

For Goalwire.com, this is a completely new way of reaching out to a larger audience. Johan Ejermark, Chairman of NewsMe, owner of Goalwire.com explains: “We are partnering with Friendbase to experiment with new fan experience.
