Portugal faithful choreographed a visual stunning display of the National flag using tablets. This happened before Portugal’s 1-3 loss to Turkey in their warm-up EURO 2012 match. The tifo was unveiled during the Portuguese national anthem by a couple hundred Portugal fans holding up tablets to compose the flag.  The innovative tifo was reported to be a marketing campaign according to Footazo.com.

For those who don’t know what a tifo is, here the definition:

Tifo– originally the Italian word for the phenomenon of supporting a sport team, is mostly used as a name for any choreography displayed by fans in the stands of an arena or stadium in connection with a sport event, mostly a football match.
Tifos are most commonly seen in important matches, local derbies and rivalries and although the tradition originated at club teams, some national teams also have fans that organize tifos on a regular basis. Tifos are primarily arranged by Ultras or a supporter club to show their love to the club, but are sometimes sponsored or arranged by the club itself.
