Innovative ‘match-maker’ app is a hit with grassroots football

Birmingham County FA is celebrating success with its online football initiative GetYourBootsOn.

The app, which was designed to help grassroots footballers get back into the game, has secured almost 1000 matches between players and clubs in the past year and has paved the way in transforming how the grassroots game connects.

Backed by former Aston Villa and England midfielder Lee Hendrie, Get Your Boots On provides a quick and easy tool for teams, providers and players based on preferred playing times, locations and formats – ultimately helping them find their perfect football match on their smartphone, tablet or PC.

Since the launch in April 2016, Get Your Boots On has triumphed in securing over 800 players and 500 teams on its database – alongside winning praise and support from teams using the matching service.

Kevin Shoemake, Birmingham FA Chief Executive said, “We are extremely pleased with the reaction Get Your Boots On has had since its launch last year and the way it has connected the grassroots community. We are passionate about the game and with the backing of footballing legends like Lee Hendrie, we are confident that the initiative will continue to be a success and encourage people to get up, get out and get active.”

Birmingham FA, which is the largest County FA in the country, was the first to launch such an initiative, and Get Your Boots On remains an exclusive tool for Birmingham FA member clubs. This comes after announcing that their new four year strategy is focused on boosting participation, developing players, and improving facilities.
