New Soccer Social Network Provides Real Rewards For Fans And Their Opinions
New soccer specific social network launched in the United States. Focused on grassroots fans and clubs, users redeem tangible rewards such as soccer jerseys and equipment for their interactions within the platform.
Futbol Focus is a next generation platform that puts the fan front and center of the soccer industry. Put simply, Futbol Focus is a social network built by the fans, for the fans and will in part; assist in the evolution of the traditional armchair supporter.
Futbol Focus is a joint initiative of grassroots soccer consultant Ryan Ginard, and Sixeed, a San Diego based web developer owned and operated by Ken DiNitto and lifelong soccer fan Franc D. Alonso.
Mr Ginard, who most recently organized the first ever U.S. based soccer technology and social media conference in Los Angeles (Soccer Tech 2012), was thrilled that a site has finally been created to help foster a new dialogue between clubs and their supporters.
“Futbol Focus has been developed in consultation with grassroots clubs, players and supporters to deliver a site that creates a real sense of community.
“The new network is committed to generating grassroots driven, original news content and rewarding those interactions with tangible rewards such as soccer equipment, games and match day tickets.
“Social media has fundamentally changed the role of fans in the sports industry and put the ball back in their court. They are more sophisticated, have new avenues to be heard and have important opinions that will help the game move forward inclusively”
In the initial launch phase fans will have access to the following features;
• News: Have your say on the latest news and contribute to a more comprehensive insight into your favorite sport.
• Social Rewards: Earn points from these interactions and redeem them for prizes.
“Unlike other social networks, Futbol Focus uses real rewards rather than awarding badges and moving up and down a basic leaderboard, meaning you really do get out what you put in.
“Soccer has been looking for a real gamechanger in terms of online interaction with its fans, we believe that we have just the product, and it will continue to grow organically to suit the needs and demands of millions of supporters worldwide” Mr Ginard said.
