Background

Problem

Our client wanted to develop a web application dedicated to the communities of football players. Football players need to play so as to not get out of shape but also to have fun on a daily basis. The aim was to give them a platform on which they can schedule matches with real football teams and enjoy their favorite sport.

The idea of web application was to enable an easy option to form a team or join an already existing one and build one’s position in the app ranking. The built-in system was meant to rate players and teams with the highest number of victories. This way, users have an opportunity to find skilled players and teams to join but also feel a sense of competition that motivates them to be better in football.

Process

The first thing was develop a user registration system that enables players to create their accounts. Each user had the option to add a new team to the platform but also search for available matches to which they could join individually. We then integrated the app with a chat system to ease the communication between users.

The dashboard was designed to display each match and its status - finished, or scheduled - with an easy option to join in. We developed a special ranking system to distinguish the most successful players and teams. The top players and current ranking positions are also visible on the dashboard.

We integrated the app with a payment system to enable easy settlements for the platform. We also wanted the platform to be able to locate available playing fields where the match could take place. This way users would only pick the location from the list and then set up the date and time of the football game. For this purpose, we integrated the app with Google maps and also added an option to type in a new location.

Solution

The Footplayers app connects all football-playing enthusiasts by giving them a platform to monitor their progress and share their passion.
