PickOurTeam aims to be the voice of fans
(PRWEB) December 03, 2012
Football community PickOurTeam has launched its first app, available free from App Store and Google Play.
The app will make it even easier for fans to voice their opinions whilst on the go – whether it is suggesting their ideal line-up, rating the individual players and manager or providing their thoughts on the latest issues surrounding their team.
The app recognises the importance of fans by rewarding them with ePoints every time they interact, which can be used as a stake against upcoming matches or to purchase goods online.
As well as regular football updates from the likes of BBC and The Guardian, football fans will get access to exclusive articles as well from some of the game's finest football writers. The likes of Jonathan Wilson (The Blizzard), Michael Cox (Zonal Marking), Iain Macintosh (The New Paper) and Ben Lyttleton (Sports Illustrated) will be among guest columnists users can read every week.
The latest version of the PickOurTeam app includes club and English Premier League news which allows users to access free articles in a format designed to increase readability, with a variety of font sizes to suit the individual.
PickOurTeam is a new type of football community which gives fans the opportunity to have a meaningful say on the formation and selection of their team. PickOurTeam aims to be the voice of fans – collecting their views on who should play where and ratings on how the players, manager and referee perform each week. PickOurTeam compiles the findings of every match and presents them back to the fans.
What are ePoints
ePoints is a universal currency that can be spent on real stuff such as gift vouchers and gift cards from major retailers and a wide variety of other products. PickOurTeam reward new users with 50 points upon registration, 10 for every line-up submitted and more for every occasion the players, managers and referees are rated after a game. Fans can even attempt to win ePoints by predicting the outcome of matches, giving them a chance to rapidly increase the amount they hold.
ePoints can be earned and spent by users on http://epoints.com or any sites using the ePoints loyalty scheme including PickOurTeam - using a single account where your ePoints balance is kept updated.
The Fans’ opinions count
PickOurTeam gives fans the chance to have their say. Based on the fans views, leaderboards can tell users at-a-glance which managers are popular amongst their fans or which referees regularly get the big decisions right. Throughout the season, the team of the week will reveal which players have been rated most highly, whilst interesting articles using the statistics gathered provide interesting insights into fans’ opinions.
