Premier League celebrates 20th anniversary? There’s an app for that…
The Premier League is commemorating its 20th anniversary with the launch of the Premier League 20 Seasons App for 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 with a great 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 playing against Manchester United at the start of the 1992/93 season, and Wayne Rooney’s acrobatic overhead kick against Manchester City in the 2010/11 season. Other highlights include David Beckham’s audacious goal from the halfway line against Wimbledon in 1996/97, Alan Shearer being recognised as the Premier League’s Player of the Decade in 2002, footage of Arsenal’s team of Invincibles in 2003/04 and Xabi Alonso’s long-range goal for Liverpool from his own half against Newcastle United in 2006/07.
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, and we’ll have more on the making of the app after NAB.
