Why Rio Ferdinand Was At The Super Bowl
Well the details are still sketchy but we sure that it wasn’t for the match. Even though it did turn out to be one of the greatest Super Bowl matches ever. The New England patriots staged an unbelievable comeback to win the game. They come from 25 points behind to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28.
It was definitely a business visit. The legendary ex-England skipper was wearing a five branded cap in his interview with BBC as they were covering the event. Five is a company that was formed by Rio Ferdinand in 2009. The company is rated as a world leader in NFL social media coverage. Ferdinand was at the showcase with his business partner Grant Best. Therefore there must have been some business discussions.
Also invited to the event were the very popular Youtubers KSI. The two social media partners Olajide Olatunji and CalFreezy, real name Callum Airey were part of the NFL leaders’ special guests. This duo commands a significant following on YouTube. Rio also has more 20 million followers on all his accounts.
It seems that The Great Wall of Rio has hit the big league in social media coverage. And we will be the first to admit that we never would have picked him for the social media guru type. But then again we are not regular winners at online casinos. We wish the potential social media partnership a healthy growth.
