“Our loyal fans around the world want to have round-the-clock instant access to the latest football news and updates, especially during the World Cup season” said Joan Blaas, VP of Mobile for Goal.com. “Handmark was able to help us deliver a simple, easy to navigate, easy to read application that helps us deliver on the wants and needs of our fans by making our content available wherever, whenever.”
