ExtraFootie was launched in the UK in June 2009, following the success of its sister (web)site, extrafootie.be, in Belgium which launched in October 2008. Catering for both French and Flemish speaking individuals, extrafoot.be has been a massive success and has proven to be the catalyst for future development into the UK market.
Offering a diverse range of social networking features, including latest news, stats, forums, competitions and a community fan shop, ExtraFootie is a site which appeals to both anorak football supporters across the country as well as those who merely want to share their own views with the wider footballing community.
Mixed with a blend of editorially-led and user generated content which covers both professional and amateur levels of the English game (all SIXTEEN divisions), from the bright lights of the Premiership right down to the grassroots of the game in the Southern Division One South and West.
ExtraFootie is unique in that it affords users and fans to interact like never before, playing a pivotal role in the sites flair and style as well as shaping the sites evolution and intended direction. Fans can also create their own personal profile, whilst club homepages and supporter group pages, enable users to interact with fans from across the world.
With high profile advertisers such as Coca-Cola and Worldteam as well as partners including Bwin.com (official sponsors of both Real Madrid C.F. and AC Milan), ExtraFootie is the number one footballing site where ‘supporters come to meet’.
Comprising of Pierre Barbieux, an entrepreneur with an extensive media portfolio and a passion for Belgian football and Ciprian Morar, the former Head of Product Development at Expedia who considers himself a ‘Hammer’, the ExtraFootie management team are merely avid football enthusiasts who want to create the biggest football supporters community in the UK.
ExtraFootie however, relies on you, the fan. With your ideas and input, this site can undoubtedly develop into one of the most unique, fun and interesting football website’s where supporters around the world can come for their daily dose of the ‘beautiful game’.
