Tfl and ESPN FC to Display World Cup Updates on London Underground

Transport for London (Tfl) has partnered with ESPN’s football website, ESPN FC, to deliver football results to London Underground commuters during the World Cup – marking the first time the transport body has signed a commercial partnership.
The partnership will see Tfl and ESPN FC bring news, results and score updates from the games to more than 140 stations via overhead platform boards and 400 service update boards displayed at station entrances.
As part of the partnership, which launches on 12 June, ESPN FC will run an advertising campaign on the home page and journey planner section of the Tfl website, as well as experiential activity involving football freestylers at Stratford, Charing Cross and Tottenham Court Road stations later this week.
