Pelé Wants to Give You Tickets to the World Cup
The countdown to the World Cup has begun, but not everyone can make the trip to Brazil. Even fewer can kick a winning goal. But if you can flick and swipe, then you might get the chance to do both
The countdown to the World Cup has begun, but not everyone can make the trip to Brazil. Even fewer can kick a winning goal. But if you can flick and swipe, then you might get the chance to do both — with the Pelé: King of Football app, our collaboration with Cosi Productions and One Global, available in the iTunes and Google Play stores. Start playing now because time is running out on your chance to win World Cup tickets, the opportunity to meet Pelé, a tryout with the Oldham Athletic A.F.C. (an actual professional team in England), and more!
In a special event at the Apple store in Soho, Pelé had a Q&A with a few of his adoring fans, while our lead developer on the app, Mike LeGrand, walked everyone through the app’s features. You can watch the event here on iTunes.
Intrigued? Follow in Pelé’s footsteps in career mode and work your way from the backstreets of Brazil all the way up to the grandeur of the World Stage or play in Pelé Blitz and pit yourself against your friends and challenge the world in hourly online competitions. Choose from hundreds of uniform combinations, use special power-ups to help you through tricky levels and watch our exclusively recorded interview footage of Pelé. By the way, you can thank the Baltimore Blast (and motion capture) for helping us get the soccer players’ movements just right.
You earn special tickets just through playing, and these enter you into real world prize draws. What are you waiting for, soccer fans? Let’s hit the field!
