Columbus (PRWEB) February 12, 2009
Brand Thunder LLC (http://www.brandthunder.com), the branded browser specialists, announced today an agreement to bring its Internet browser Booms to Major League Soccer (MLS) and its 15 clubs.
Soccer fans will soon enjoy an Internet experience tailored specifically to them. Through a small download, their Internet browsers will take on the look, feel and energy of Major League Soccer. Whether they choose the league view or their favorite club, each Boom will feature logos and colors, plus the addition of news, rich media or links specific to their selection.
Booms are lightweight active customizations that can include themes, toolbars, sidebars and other content or functionality. Users can dynamically switch between Booms without restarting their browser.
"Soccer fans are known for their fervor. We needed an Internet offering that lived up to that," said Chris Schlosser, Director of Digital Strategy for MLS. "We look forward to working collectively with Brand Thunder to bring our passionate fans even closer to their favorite clubs and players."
"We're creating a comprehensive and meaningful experience for the true soccer fan," said Patrick Murphy, founder and CEO of Brand Thunder. "And with our Boom technology, fans aren't locked into a single view, they can move from club, to league, to another team with a click of their mouse."
