Get into the soccer spirit with Angry Birds! Rovio Entertainment and YouTube have teamed up to create an animated online video series aimed to get kids excited about playing soccer.  Now available via the YouTube Kids app just as this summer's World Cup action is heating up, Angry Birds: BirLd Cup is a mix of live action and animation starring characters from the Angry Birds video game alongside some of the world's top soccer players.

The YouTube Kids app will be featuring Angry Birds: BirLd Cup along with other soccer themed content under a special homepage tab through July 16.  As the soccer teams representing countries from around the globe assemble to compete in Russia for the World Cup, the Angry Birds are hosting a competition of their own.  In the BirLd Cup, teams of kids are joined by Everton Football Club's superstar players Wayne Rooney, Tom Davies and Dominic Calvert-Lewin alongside Turkish international sensation Cenk Tosun in a series of fun and competitive soccer challenges.  Cheer on your favorite team while learning some new soccer tricks for yourself through watching this fun kid-centric video series.

Angry Birds: BirLd Cup will be shown exclusively on YouTube and through the YouTube Kids app. New episodes will debut every Wednesday and Saturday through July 13, 2018. The YouTube Kids app is FREE to use and was designed to provide a way for parents to ensure children are watching age appropriate content when it comes to YouTube videos through filtering and blocking what can be seen. The app also makes it easier for children to find videos on topics they want to explore while helping mom and dad keep track of what their kids are viewing. It is available on Google Play for Android devices and the App Store for Apple.
