As a summer of incredible football action begins to wind down, and the new season still seems so far away, Nike are aiming to help give players a fast and easy way to set-up and join games with the Nike football app.
The Nike Football app allows players to create matches, banter with friends and teammates, and be the first to access exclusive Nike product.
Vitally, the app will also be a gateway to the professional game through the Nike Academy – the U.K.-based academy for young players, based at St. George’s Park National Football Centre — which gives its players a route to the pro game through fixtures against leading clubs.
From its launch, the Nike Football app will be the only way to earn a place at the Nike Academy via registration for all Nike Academy-related trial events.
The Nike Football app features custom football emojis within its chat feature to extend the dressing room camaraderie, and uses geo-tracking technology to allow members to set up matches around the world.
The app allows players to create their own micro-communities with the “Crew” feature, staying connected to their friends and teammates and making sure they never miss a chance to play. Using the “Play” section, members can set up a time and location for a game or kick-about and track who is in.
