CLOROX PARTNERS WITH VIGGLE DURING THE 2014 WORLD CUP

Vigoooal Game Will Drive Engagement for the Company’s Clorox Liquid Bleach, Hidden Valley and Glad Brands Among Soccer Fans

Viggle Inc. (NASDAQ:VGGL), the mobile entertainment marketing and rewards platform, has partnered with The Clorox Company to reach and engage soccer fans. Viggle has proven its ability to deliver targeted commercial messaging and to drive viewer engagement around key sporting events with the success of its football and basketball companion viewing products. Clorox will sponsor Viggle’s newest game, Vigoooal, during the 2014 games to support Clorox brands, including Clorox Liquid Bleach, Glad and Hidden Valley.

Similar to Viggle LIVE, Vigoooal is a real-time sports game that will allow Viggle members to answer trivia questions during or prior to scheduled World Cup games. If members play Vigoooal during a live game, they can answer questions related to the game, teams and players to gain Viggle Points. Viggle Members can answer which team will score the first goal of the game and earn points for correct answers. If a game is scheduled in the future, members can play Vigoooal by predicting the final result, and earn points for predicting the correct score. Individual points are cumulatively tracked during the entire tournament so users can see how they stack up against other Vigoooal players at any time on a leaderboard featuring top scorers.

“We are excited to continue our partnership with Viggle on yet another innovative mobile experience tied to TV viewing,” said Ellen Liu, Media Director, Clorox. “Our integration with the Vigoooal game should drive meaningful engagement with our brands among the loyal soccer fan audience as they view one of the world’s most watched sports.”

“We’re thrilled to be working with Clorox again, and offering Viggle members another opportunity to earn more rewards while we engage them across their TVs and mobile devices,” added Kevin Arrix, Chief Revenue Officer, Viggle. “Our members are true sports enthusiasts, as evidenced with the success of our fantasy football and basketball game, MYGUY, and we are eager to see the results of this campaign as we expand our second-screen options with a game that involves such a coveted sport.”

Clorox has previously partnered with Viggle for their Bleach and Brita campaigns in 2013 and 2014. Vigoooal will run the duration of the 2014 World Cup tournament.
