Kick-Point presents the electronic football goal at the world’s largest football trade fair “Soccerex” in South Africa.

Kick-Point presents the electronic football goal to the international specialist audience just before the start of the 2010 Football World Cup. The demand for German technology is high.

Kick-Point fun & football took part in the world’s largest football trade fair “Soccerex” in South Africa for the third time from 29th November until 3rd December 2009, following participation in 2007 and 2008.

The electronic football goal was used as part of a goal shooting competition on the “Free State South Africa” trade fair stand. Trade fair and congress visitors were given the chance to playfully show and measure their shooting skills on the “Free State” stand.
Additionally, teams from the premier football league such as “Celtic Bloemfontein” demonstrated their football skills with the electronic football goal.

Kick-Point attracted more than 250 participants each day, guaranteeing a high level of visitors to the trade fair stand. Volker Dingwerth, Managing Director of Kick-Point GmbH was happy about the presentation of his “invention”: “This trade fair greatly exceeded all my expectations. We have received enquiries from many of the participating countries which are interested in using the electronic football goal”.

Most of the interested parties would like to use the electronic football goal as part of public television coverage, in fan parks during the 2010 World Cup or at different World Cup football road shows. “This shows just how versatile our goal is and how uncomplicated it is to handle”, the entrepreneur from Rheine points out. “The electronic football goal can be used anywhere. All you need is the space”.

The use of the module on the internet and the ability to display all the participants and their goal shooting scores for the complete duration of the event (e.g. 30 day public viewing) on a homepage went down particularly well with the trade fair visitors. A World Cup event can be communicated more effectively and continual communication with the audience can take place this way.

Following the 2006 Football World Cup in Germany and the 2008 European Cup in Austria and Switzerland, the Kick-Point football attraction with its goal shooting competitions testing the precision and speed of goal shots will also accompany 2010 World Cup events worldwide.
