The League Launches in 24 International Cities

The League has extended its international reach by officially launching in 24 new cities around the world.

The selective dating app has been furthering its commitment to reaching new markets over the past few months, to ensure people are able to stay connected while social-distancing. It is now available in 155 countries across six continents.

This latest rollout is mainly focused on cities in Asia and the Middle East. It also marked The League’s first moves into Africa, with launches in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Nairobi and Lagos.

A spokesperson for The League told IT Web: “Cape Town and Johannesburg are the two richest cities in Africa and the two largest cities in the country, allowing professionals to thrive thanks to a strong education and ample opportunity.

“[They are also] home to the two best universities in Africa. All that aspiring singles are missing is their better half – and that’s where The League can help.”

Like the rest of the online dating industry, The League’s video feature is seeing increased usage and success rates during the lockdown periods.

League Live randomly connects users for short video speed dates. If both parties like each other they can accept a match and continue their conversation through in-app messaging.

Company data suggests that singles who use the feature are four times more likely to make a match and three times more likely to exchange phone numbers.
