A new device is allowing blind supporters to feel football like never before!

Fieeld is the first touch system for broadcasting pre-recorded sports events that enables the movements of the ball and the players to be followed using the fingertips.

Part of #FootballCan, Santander's commitment strategy for the positive impact that football has in the society, the device converts data collected by monitoring players and reproduces each move.

To present Fieeld, Santander today launched a video featuring Nickollas, a blind Brazilian boy who is a great fan of Palmeiras, and whose mother plays the part of commentator for all the games.

FIFA awarded this very touching story the Fan Award prize at their most recent annual The Best gala last September.

With Fieeld, Nicko can now enjoy a unique experience: using his fingertips to feel the goals scored in the Copa Libertadores.
