Find a Player is a smartphone app that makes it easier for people to organise, find and play sports.

Our app covers over 140 different sports and has 2 core functions.

1. Acting as a hub between sports players and games on a local basis.
2. Simplifying and automating the full game organisation process.

The idea arose from years of receiving desperate emails, texts and Facebook messages from organisers needing players to fill their football games. The Founder, Jim Law, realised that since players are always looking for games and games are always looking for players there must be a much more efficient way to connect the 2 groups.

We allow our users to set up activities using the app and invite their friends to join them directly from their phonebook. Thereafter, if they’re still short of numbers, we connect them with local users who are looking to do the same thing.

Our idea is strongly supported by market research we have undertaken:-

Our idea is strongly supported by market research we have undertaken:-

• 82% of people who organise games have struggled to find people to play with
• 88% of people polled would be happy to play sports with someone they didn’t know (while only 1.7% of people currently do so).
• 78% of people said they would do more sport if they could easily find something to get involved with locally.

These statistics show there is a massive opportunity available once we start to connect the sports games and players around the world. In the UK alone around 15m people take part in sporting activity at least once a week.

After raising £150k in crowdfunding in September 2015 we launched on Android and iOS in Late January 2016. We are now iteratively making new releases approximately every 2-3 weeks.

To date more than 24,000 hours of development and several million lines of code have gone into our product to get it to a standard that today’s consumer expects. We believe it stacks up as a user experience with global apps such as Uber or Justeat - delivering whatever you need in a few taps. Now we just need to get it out there.

We have won a number of different awards in 2017.

Winner - Best App, 2017 Sport Technology Awards (beating Arsenal, British Rowing, NY Marathon and German FA)
Winner - Best UK Startup, KPMG SportsTech World Series
Winner - Global Game Changers 2017
