KAYAK Introduces Matchmaker for the Big Soccer Game

STAMFORD, Conn., June 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Following America’s absence in soccer’s most important international tournament of the year, KAYAK is rolling out KAYAK Matchmaker, a new tool that filters travel and fan preferences and leaves Americans with a new team to cheer for in the big tournament and encourages you to travel to that country. Whether your ideal celebration involves cheering for the underdogs in the countryside of Croatia or rooting for a powerhouse team on the beaches of Barcelona, KAYAK Matchmaker uses filters to uncover your perfect team match.


From your favorite types of stadium food to the fan culture and climate you’re looking to surround yourself with, KAYAK Matchmaker considers personal travel, weather, food and fan-ing choices before matching you with a new team. So fans can quickly get up to speed, KAYAK also sends a quick snapshot of important fan knowledge including the country’s nickname, food and drink preferences and the team’s odds of winning it all. To help Americans truly feel like a fan and experience the world, KAYAK is also offering the chance to win a trip to the country of the team you match with.

“This is anticipated to be one of the most talked about sporting events of the year and just because the U.S. team is staying home, it doesn’t mean you have to,” said David Solomito, Vice President North America marketing, KAYAK. “Just like KAYAK filters your options to help you feel confident that you found the right flight, KAYAK Matchmaker lets you filter your fan preferences to find the right team to support, and the best flight to get you there.”
