New Soccer Specific Social Network A Gamechanger For Grassroots Clubs And Non Profits
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 grassroots clubs and its supporters front and center of the soccer industry. Put simply, Futbol Focus is a social network built by the fans, for the fans and will help clubs grow through their interactions in this new online community.
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 has founded and ran his own club in the past and 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 created out of the desire to help clubs become more sustainable through networking, sharing best practice and never seen before access to new
supporters, sponsors, service providers and members through the following mechanisms;
• News: The ability to showcase you own local news stories through our news section.
• PR: Exposure to new fans, players and sponsors through our localized plugins.
• Services: Get the cheapest equipment through our classifieds & business directory - heck, get it for free when your supporters earn points and donate them to your organization!
“The most unique feature of Futbol Focus is that users can accrue points to redeem rewards for their interactions within the site. Moving forward the real drawcard for clubs will be the ability for their members to donate these points to any non-profit sports organization (eg clubs) that are registered on the network.
“Clubs can ultimately redeem larger prizes such as equipment, uniforms etc by using a larger points tally sourced from members and supporters.
“Redeeming much needed equipment will help these grassroots clubs deliver better outcomes for its players and members and will be a small way for fans to give back to the game they love” Mr Ginard said.
