Opera Mini has introduced a new browser Mode to promote football followership in Nigeria.

The firm said, on Wednesday, that the Reboot Livescore package would offer an in-depth football experience built right into the data-saving browser, enabling fans to follow action from around the globe without having to download an additional application.

According to the firm, during the World Cup in 2022, Opera introduced Live Scores to the its mini browser, in which a scoreboard was installed right on the app’s homepage so that fans did not have to jump to different sites to stay on top of the action – and thereby, expend additional data.

The company stated that the package is set to receive a huge upgrade that no longer sees the site as just a scoreboard.

It added that Live Scores 2.0 will provide a suite of features that will enable users to have the world of football at their fingertips, right from within Opera Mini.

“To start, users will be able to customise their football experience by following their favourite teams and competitions. Over 8,000 teams will be available from around the world, including, of course, global favourites from the Premier League, Champions League, and beyond. Users can then track any game they like from a new match list page. With a summary of kick-off times and live scores, users can follow multiple matches across numerous leagues at once.

“And when fans want to know more about what’s going on in a particular match, they can now click to get a detailed picture of all the action. Users can toggle through the line-ups, read running commentary, and see match statistics to know who has scored, assisted, been booked, substituted – all the most pressing information, immediately available right in the Opera Mini Browser. Users can even join thousands of other fans in a running poll predicting what the result of the match will be.”
