DALLAS, June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Match Group (NASDAQ: MTCH), the global leader in dating, announced today the launch of a new dating brand across Europe, focused solely on singles over 50. Designed and developed by Match Group's European business Meetic, the brand operates under DisonsDemain in France and Ourtime in the UK, and leverages Match Group's experience with a similar business also called Ourtime, which it launched in the U.S. in 2011.
The European version of the service allows singles to meet through online connections, but also at real world events specifically organized for them. It is supported by a full offline and digital plan and will benefit from the same expertise in terms of dating, technological innovation, advanced algorithms, data protection, and strong customer service that has made Match Group the world's leading dating service provider.
"This new brand reflects our mission to offer dating services to all singles. Singles over age 50 are eager to date and deserve to be addressed in the right way, through a dedicated brand. At 50, you simply don't date the same way you did at 20 or 30, so we designed Ourtime and DisonsDemain specifically to meet their needs," commented Alexandre Lubot, CEO Match Group EMEA & APAC.
The European business is launching first in France and the UK, and is expected to be rolled out across Europe with a launch campaign addressing "Young Singles Above 50".
