Live Match Commentaries

In order to encourage live, real-time match management we have recently launched a new Match Management feature called Live Match Commentaries. From now on, in addition to official match events such as goals and bookings, you are able to add the Match Commentaries to your match timeline. These commentaries can be in form of the text, an image, or a video/ link.

The purpose of textual comments is to provide public users with additional interesting information about the events on a specific match, such as current attacking or possession momentum, unofficial events such as good chances, free kicks, and anything else that may be interesting or informative for the public audience.

Beyond standard textual comments, COMET allows you to also provide match-related images and links to other apps and websites, such as video highlights on YouTube or other streaming platforms.

Please take into account that Match Commentaries are available and managed from MyCOMET and COMET Football App:

For instructions on how add a Match Commentary from Mobile Apps, please check the following page: Match Commentaries
