Onefootball signs first editorial content tie-up with Bundesliga side

Germany-based football media platform Onefootball has signed its second editorial content agreement in a matter of days, teaming up with Bundesliga side Schalke 04.

Through the tie-up, all editorial content on the club’s homepage will also appear on the Onefootball app and website. Onefootball is to be directly linked with the Schalke 04 digital backend, meaning the content will simultaneously appear in the two places.

A similar agreement was announced by Onefootball with Premier League side Manchester City last week.

Lucas von Cranach, chief executive and founder of Onefootball, said: “We are delighted that Schalke 04 have decided to make their content available to our App users, becoming the first Bundesliga club to do so. This gives all Schalke fans flexibility in keeping up to date with all the latest club news. The integration of official club content into our own package is a further milestone in our product development and we are looking forward to welcoming more clubs into our network in the near future.”

Onefootball offers football news, live streams, live results, reports and videos in six different languages via its own Onefootball platform, as well as on social media channels YouTube, Facebook and Instagram.

Onefootball was formed in 2008 and initially made its name as a provider of football news, data and statistics. It now employs 220 people at its Berlin headquarters and has moved into the live streaming of football matches.

It has signed various pay-per-view distribution agreements with broadcasters and football rights-holders, including deals for the Polish Cup, with Sportdigital Fussball, Sky Deutschland and Eleven Sports.
