When most people think of football in the U.S., we think of the National Football League (NFL) – in fact, we really do not think there is any other 'real' football. However, if you live "across the pond" as they say, you will discover the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) may have something to say about that – the governing body that encompasses Europe and parts of Asia. It is actually much larger than the NFL and their UEFA Champion League Final – the equivalent to our Super Bowl – is also much larger. It does not have the clout of the NFL Super Bowl, but it is a very big deal in Europe.
HTC is a big supporter of the UEFA, and to commemorate their kickoff this week, have come out with a special edition of their HTC One M8 smartphone. It is meticulously engraved with the iconic UEFA Champions League logo and official trophy. So you can rapidly access the games, it features Motion Launch that will quickly wake-up your display when in the 'sleep mode.' Even if you are watching the game at home on the TV, at the stadium or in a pub with friends, your HTC UEFA Champions League Trophy Smartphone (what a mouthful) will help ensure that you have up-to-the-minute football information at your fingertips.
If you would like to purchase one for yourself, good luck with that – HTC is available exclusively through HTC promotions, so keep your eye on the social networks for more information on how to obtain the specially engraved device. One thing you can get from HTC, and it's free, is their newly updated HTC FootballFeed app in the Google Play Store. It will give you up-to-the-minute UEFA power stats, insights, and exclusive news on each matchup, football player in both the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League – it is the ultimate companion for football fans.
What is nice about HTC's FootballFeed is that it is compatible with ANY smartphone running Android 4.1 or higher. It will give you a rolling live feed for every match, complete with highlights of key moments, as well as detailed commentary. It supports push notifications so you always know when some action is occurring and now features a Live Dashboard that provides a snapshot view of data for all games currently being played in one convenient place. It is available in 26 languages, including Arabic.
