Olympiacos FC, the most successful football (soccer) club in Greek history, has selected KYCK.com, a digital media startup providing a personalized soccer social experience, as its primary social platform to engage with passionate fans around the world. Olympiacos FC will be the first super-club in the world to officially collaborate and partner with KYCK.
“Our club has a massive following within Greece as well as around the globe and we want to connect with as many supporters as possible. We are investing passionately in our team’s digital growth, through our official website and the constant development of the Olympiacos WebTV ,” said Vangelis Marinakis President of Olympiacos FC. “KYCK’s social platform allows us to focus our efforts in a concerted way, and to speak directly to our followers wherever they may live.

Within KYCK, Olympiacos FC will create an official team page as the destination hub for fans to engage with one another and with the club in a more immersive, meaningful way. Users are able to share photos, videos, and links to stories about their beloved club as well as interact with official content posted by the club through traditional social features (i.e. comments, likes, re-shares to additional social channels). In addition, Olympiacos FC supporters can “check-in” to virtual events, which create a dedicated conversation thread to discuss all aspects of matches and receive live scoring updates in a timely fashion.
“Using technology to solve organizational problems for clubs and youth teams while also creating an immersive soccer experience for the community is a key part of KYCK’s vision,” said Mac Lackey, CEO and founder of KYCK. “We’re excited to partner with Olympiacos FC, a storied football club in Europe, to set the digital standard for the future of football (soccer).”
KYCK.com is already being adopted on a global scale, with users from 128 countries hitting the platform throughout the duration of the UEFA Euro Championship this past June. Users immersed themselves in content by checking into matches, commenting on articles, sharing photos and watching highlights videos.
