Kick-Point at the Soccerex 2008
Kick-Point prepares for the 2010 World Cup at the Soccerex 2008 in South Africa.
Following the Soccerex 2007, the patented Kick-Point electronic goal wall turned out to be a real crowd puller again at the Soccerex 2008, where it was part of the joint stand “Germany – The Country of Ideas” in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The aim of the presentation Germany – The Country of Ideas at the Soccerex was to present selected innovative football services and concepts from Germany to the professional world of international football expertise.
The main goal of the renewed partnership between Kick-Point GmbH and the Soccerex in cooperation with “Germany – The Country of Ideas”, was to position the Kick-Point electronic football goal in South Africa in time for the 2010 World Cup.
The responses were similar to those in 2007. The electronic football goal “Made in Germany”, used to measure the precision and speed of shots at goal was given a more than positive response.
Whilst the South African Soccerex visitors in 2007 were still searching hard for ideas for the 2010 World Cup, it became very clear during the Soccerex 2008 that those responsible for the 2010 World Cup had already defined their budgets and projects and were in search of real implementable ideas for football events. Kick-Point GmbH could react to local demand with specific offers at the football trade fair in order to equip various fan parks, public viewing venues and VIP areas with the Kick-Point goal, as it did during the 2006 World Cup and the 2008 European Cup.
