Zimbababwe’s Footballzone today rebranded to Soccer24.co.zw. as they increase their efforts to cover real time soccer news in the Southern Africa country and beyond.
Godwin Thiery Chiparaushe, founder and CEO FootballZone told TechMoran, “We needed a sleek and short name, one that fans would remember easily.”
“Footballzone is now the holding company providing a range of digital football services
the idea is real time soccer news 24/7 many ways footballzone was not the best name
especially as fans search for soccer news not football,” he added.
The Footballzone website has now been replaced by the Soccer24 website while this Facebook page will be discontinued in the coming weeks. The pages will be run concurrently in the short-term as we seek to migrate all fans to one exuberant Facebook page.
The online soccer startup was launched last year and has been growing by the day, with plans to expand across the region and on the continent steadily.The new name will help the online portal focus on just news while FootballZone will deal in a number of services for football fans in the country.
In the neighbourhood, MIH Naspers runs Sports24.co.za, profiling all sports from soccer, cricket, rugby, among others and has several .24 sites in the country.
