Last month, ahead of the start of the domestic club football season on the Rock, the Gibraltar Football Association announced the launch of two initiatives aimed at developing the image and raising the profile of the Gibraltar National League.
The first of these two initiatives is a partnership with Footters, a live football streaming platform who have live online coverage of multiple leagues from Europe, South America and beyond. An integral part of the deal struck between the Gibraltar FA, and Footters is that every match in the National League this season will be broadcast live and completely free of charge. Therefore, to watch all of the Gibraltar National League, supporters just need to register on the site, or download the Footters app and sign up, and click on match of their choice.
Further information, including how to go about signing up for the streaming service, can be found on the Footters website :https://play.footters.com/category/1/9
The second initiative is an extension of the excellent work being carried out by the Gibraltarian marketing company, The Bulb, on behalf of the Gibraltar FA to also incorporate the National League.
Consequently, the Gibraltar National League will now develop its own brand identity and social media presence. The initiative is aimed at helping the League and the Clubs to develop their social media visibility and online presence, much in the same way as The Bulb has been able to do with Gibraltar’s national teams.
Speaking about the new initiatives, the Gibraltar’s FA’s General Secretary, Ivan Robba, said:
“These two initiatives are the start of a great step forward in domestic football in Gibraltar.
Not only have we begun an exciting new season in the Gibraltar National League, but we also embark on a whole new journey in which these two fantastic initiatives are aimed at taking the League on the next level in terms of international visibility and I am very pleased that the Gibraltar FA is helping our league and clubs in this way.
Footters are the market leaders in our region in relation to online streaming solutions for leagues that are not bought up by huge TV companies. Simply having the Gibraltar National League on their platforms will open up a whole new, massive potential audience that would never have got to see local domestic football in the past.
“The Bulb are a modern and dynamic Gibraltarian Marketing Agency who have worked with us for several years now and have been integral in revolutionising the Gibraltar FA’s digital platforms and the visibility of our national teams. This expertise will now become available to the National League and our Clubs, so it promises to be a very exciting 2021/22!”
Dylan Trenado, CEO of The Bulb commented:
“I am extremely proud to extend our relationship with the Gibraltar FA and I am delighted that Gibraltar’s Football Clubs and Gibraltar National League have placed their trust in us.
As a company we are extremely excited to begin this journey in raising the image and profile of the Gibraltar National League to a level it deserves.
We hope that this is just the start of long-term relationship and with the amazing team at The Bulb, I am sure that it’s a partnership that will flourish.
On a personal note I couldn’t be prouder to form part of this historic agreement and, along with the backing of my team, the hard work is already under way to ensure that by working together with the Gibraltar FA, the GFLA and our clubs, we can take Gibraltarian domestic football on to new and exciting heights.
