The Samsung Youth Reporter team recently visited the Samsung fan zone situated in the banking mall at Sandton City. There are 8 other Fan Zones throughout South Africa, filled with different activities, including a soccer booth where fans can practice scoring goals. They can also get their faces painted for free and write their words of gratitide and support to their favorite teams on large Samsung screens using All Share, a new technology that connects handsets and televisions wirelessly. Fans can also show their love for soccer by singing the Samsung Football Anthem. “I am a Samsung addict and I expect a lot of branding like this from Samsung. There is a lot of information here and I just love it,” said Jacques.
The Samsung Fan Zones have definitely created a buzz around town and it is clear to see why. The space in Sandton City is attractive and it is a haven for anyone who is into smart technology and is an avid soccer fan.
