Napoli claims football first with Tinder partnership

Italian Serie A football club Napoli has entered into a partnership with dating app Tinder.

The partnership, which Napoli claims is the first of its kind for a football club, will focus on striker Arek Milik.

The Polish international recently scored his first goal since returning from injury and Napoli has urged fans to welcome him back with messages on Tinder. Milik (pictured) will interact with fans on the app for two weeks before choosing four supporters that will be given a chance to meet him.

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