Sky Bet Launches Facebook Football Predictor

This story was published more than 12 years ago.

Online betting site Sky Bet has launched a Facebook app, which allows Sky Bet fans to predict the outcomes of football matches.

The app, which is titled "Call of the Nation" will allow players to guess the scoreline, first goal scorer, and man of the match. One Premier League match up is featured each week, with fans of both teams uploading videos to the site. Once the videos are online, players can share them with friends and find out what other fans are predicting.

Sky Bet Public Relations Manager Helen Jacob said: "Social media is the best way of interacting with our customers, who love to tell us and their mates how they're calling the weekend's big matches. The video element adds an extra dimension and acts as a kind of visual fan forum, allowing fans to find out their mates' views as well as having a laugh at their dodgy on-camera performances!"
