FIFA World Cup Fan Zone Powered by One of the Biggest Brands in the World

In the summer of 2022, LiveLike teamed up with one of the world’s biggest brands to power a new fan engagement platform around the FIFA World Cup. As part of the activation, we launched an audience platform experience called the ‘Fan Zone’, a dedicated user hub that combined LiveLike mini-games and loyalty rewards tools to engage fans around the world.

Specifically, the Fan Zone featured LiveLike’s Prediction Center, allowing fans to make multiple predictions for every match, fostering friendly competition with their peers while also gauging their standing on a global scale. Users simply selected the match of their choice, answered five consecutive questions, validated their predictions, and earned points for each accurate forecast. 

Adding to the excitement, users had the opportunity to earn three coveted loyalty badges, each associated with specific actions within the mini-game: Make a Prediction, Share a Prediction, and Perfect Prediction. In total, the Fan Zone recorded an impressive 480k interactions, showcasing the widespread enthusiasm and engagement fostered by the dynamic mini-game experience.

LNB - Bracket Challenge: Elevating Playoff Excitement

In 2022, the French Basketball League (LNB) enhanced their playoff experience by collaborating with LiveLike to introduce a custom bracket challenge mini-game on their platform. Notably, mini-games weren’t a standard feature on our side at the time; we specifically developed this experience for LNB, marking a pivotal moment that emphasized the growing demand for off-the-shelf, easily integrated custom mini-games.

The LNB leveraged our tailored mini-game to introduce a playoff Bracket Challenge, engaging users in predicting playoff outcomes using a LiveLike-powered prediction widget. Users were required to undergo a seamless registration process, providing the LNB with valuable first-party data and laying the foundation for future tailored user engagement strategies. Once registered, users enjoyed the thrill of predicting playoff game outcomes using our Prediction widget mini-game to forecast the entire bracket in one go. 

The mini-game experience created was user-friendly, easy to navigate, and offered an exciting way for fans to get involved in the sport they love. With an impressive 92% interaction rate, the LNB successfully amplified fan participation for the playoff season thanks to LiveLike’s Prediction widget and Bracket Challenge.
