Football Fans Will Get a Kick Out of Destination Brazil
When Microsoft first announced their sports integration it was mostly focused on the American form of Football. Fans in the rest of the world wondered if the Beautiful game would ever get the same treatment?
Well now we an answer with the announcement of Destination Brazil.
The app available to XboxOne users will look to seamlessly integrate the user into to the real action on the pitch as well as their gaming experience.
More details are below but from what I can see it looks like the Green team have truly pulled out a corker.
Today, on Xbox Wire, Microsoft announced a new hub for all things football on Xbox, Destination Brazil. Starting 12th June, fans can access Destination Brazil on the Xbox One dashboard and launch an array of football content. Destination Brazil includes Brazil Now, a new app that snaps next to live TV to enhance your match viewing experience, enable you to play FIFA 14 Ultimate Team: FIFA World Cup and check out various series about your favourite football clubs from Copa90.
Brazil Now brings you as close to the action in Brazil as possible without leaving your living room. You can personalise the app to your team, receive alerts and score updates for all the games, and watch the live games with real-time stats, scores and live social experiences on Xbox Live. Brazil Now also gives you notifications of when matches are starting, goal alerts and score updates. You can use these notifications to jump directly into the app and get details about the match in progress, or watch the match live.
Also, starting on 15th June, fans can tune in to the all-new interactive reality show “Every Street United” through Destination Brazil and watch as legendary footballers Thierry Henry and Edgar Davids scout the world’s most gifted, undiscovered street stars.
The excitement is just beginning, but with Destination Brazil, you’ll never miss a single kick. Head over to Xbox Wire for more information.
