Goooal! Catch World Cup Fever with Visa GoFans on YouTube

June 23rd, 2010 by Janet Caputo

In celebration of the current 2010 FIFA World Cup, Visa has created a GoFans YouTube Channel enabling soccer fans to express their support of their national teams by showcasing their passionate “Goooal” calls, in the spirit of world famous Argentinean soccer announcer Andres Cantor. Cantor himself appears on the Visa GoFans page to provide fans with the tutorial on how to emulate his famous call. The GoFans World Cup Fever is really catching on; within the first two weeks of the Visa GoFans YouTube Channel launch, there have been over 2,000,000 page views, and the channel is in the top 3 of all pages viewed on YouTube!

Now through July 11 2010, soccer fans can visit www.youtube.com/visagofans to upload and view videos of enthusiastic fans screaming their longest “Goooal” shout. Fans that submit videos are emailed links so that they can easily share their submission on various social media outlets.

Visa also supports its partnership with FIFA in the Visa “Watch Your Way to Brazil” Sweepstakes. Fans that view “Goooal” videos have an opportunity to win a trip for two to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, or one of 60 $100 Visa gift cards. Strobe supported Visa with this epic promotion by providing content moderation, record/view functionality, email messaging/links, sweepstakes administration and web hosting.
