Kingdom’s GoSoccer booking app launches

The Kingdom’s first mobile app for booking football pitches was officially launched on Tuesday.

Called GoSoccer, the platform allows players across the capital to reserve spaces for training or match play, said the company’s press release.

GoSoccer’s Sales and Marketing Manager Sovann Lyhour said it is the first app of its kind in the region, adding that the firm is excited to be making the lives of local enthusiasts easier.

“We spotted a need then worked on our idea, and now we are pleased to launch what we know will be a popular solution to the stress of organising football matches. Download the app and play more football!”

Bookings and cancellations are all done within the app, while payment is handled by the pitches themselves.

The app, which is available for free via Google Play Store and the Apple App Store, is still in its beta testing phase.

SmartStart star

The team behind the GoSoccer app previously landed the top spot at the inaugural SmartStart: Young Innovator Program, a startup competition run by telecommunications firm Smart Axiata and incubator Impact Hub Phnom Penh.

Smart CEO Thomas Hundt said the competition was created to help develop and promote tech solutions and talent in the Kingdom.

“I am delighted to know that they have finally reached this milestone of going live. I look forward to many Cambodians being able to benefit from GoSoccer’s platform and growth,” he said.

The idea for GoSoccer came in early last year after the app’s founders were frustrated trying to find a pitch to play on. Since then, they have worked hard to find a solution that best suits players and pitch owners.
