Sports Broadcaster, up to 95k daily in chats, time spent growth x4

The biggest sports media and TV channel in CIS countries, Match TV (12.5 mln monthly visitors), wanted to provide an opportunity for socialization for their viewers, and we delivered.


Football matches during the World Cup were available on the Match TV channel for free. So, the crucial goal was to encourage fans and viewers to become authorized users to gather them on the official digital platforms of Match TV (web and apps).

Also, to provide them a place to discuss sports and make this place safe and healthy to increase traffic, drive viewers to register, grow the lifetime value of viewers, and stimulates them to spend more time on the official platform, not on external social media about sports.
