Napoli announce Tinder partnership

Napoli have become the first soccer club to partner with mobile dating app Tinder.

The Italian top-flight side have also set up their 23-year-old striker Arek Milik on the service, giving supporters a chance to connect with the summer recruit from Ajax.

Milik has recently returned from a knee injury, and Napoli fans will be able to match with him on Tinder by sending a message to wish him well on his return.

The Pole will then pick his four favourite messages and invite the fans to meet him in person. 

“I’m really proud to be part of this unique and innovative initiative with Tinder,” said the Polish international. “Technology brings people together, just like sports, and I look forward to starting this new adventure.”

“We are happy to support Arek Milik and SSC Napoli,” said David Wyler, Tinder’s vice president of partnerships. “Tinder is first and foremost a platform for meeting new people. We look forward to connecting fans with their favourite player.”

Milik has scored eight goals for Napoli in his debut season, with the club currently sitting third in Serie A with three games left to play.
