NEW YORK, June 16 /PRNewswire/ -- We Are Plus and u2i are pleased to announce the availability of the NYC Soccer Game Finder, a free Apple iPhone application that gives soccer fans throughout the five boroughs and Hoboken the ultimate tool to find bars, restaurants and other venues in their area that are showing the World Cup games. A corresponding website is also available by visiting NYC Game Finder on any PC or smartphone browser.

Created by and for New Yorkers, the NYC Soccer Game Finder is a technology-driven grassroots initiative to help support small businesses and celebrate the vibrant international diversity of New York City.  The goal of the initiative is to encourage a fun, communal viewing experience for the World Cup and stimulate the local economy. To be featured in the NYC Soccer Game Finder, venues can register here (http://nycgamefinder.com/datasite) at no charge.

The statistics collected from the NYC Soccer Game Finder and accompanying website will be compiled into a case study, which will demonstrate the passion for soccer in the United Sates to further support our bid for the 2018/2022 World Cup.
