“We see strong vision alignment between CONIFA and mycujoo,” said CONIFA President Per-Anders Blind. “We both want football to be available for all.
“mycujoo contacted us early in our preparations for the 2018 Paddy Power World Football Cup, and have shown great enthusiasm in becoming an official tournament partner,” he continued. “We are delighted that mycujoo’s cutting-edge streaming technology will make CONIFA’s biggest tournament available to a global audience.”
