How To Organise Your Own Open Practice & Pre-Season Friendly Match

More Time For Sports - Less Administration

We all been there, wanting to play sports in the beginning or at the end of the season when it is difficult to find enough players for the practice. You already paid for access to the pitch or hall but have no players.

The problem is that, well, people are busy and don't have time to focus on sports in between seasons for different reasons. If only you could reach more players...

Cast a Wider Net And Find More Players

Wouldn't it be great if you could:

  • Find an opponent for a pre-season friendly match
  • Stretch the season by organising end-of-season friendly matches
  • Find extra players so that you could have a better team practice
  • Find a goalie whenever your regular goalies are unavailable

Use our Public Event feature to build a network of players that you can reach with a click of a button.
