The idea for Toni was born in summer 2016, when we created Toni, the Football Chatbot, as a buddy for soccer fans during the European Championships. The bot blew up and we kept developing, making Toni a soccer buddy for fans year round. In March 2017, Team Toni was accepted to Europe’s first chatbot accelerator ELEVATE. Ever since then, Team Toni is working on Toni.ai – the next step in the story of Toni – with the vision of redefining fan engagement.
In August 2017 Toni powered by LAOLA1 was launched – a new and improved version of our football chatbot.
At the moment, we are working with the Hype Sports Innovation Lab Italy to continuously improve our product & business. Being part of the Hype Lab Network means being part of an international network of enterprises transforming the way we experience and follow sports.
What’s next? Stay tuned – next big thing coming soon.
