Users will be able to upload photographs and videos, discuss fixtures and arrange social events.

Mike Sastry, chief operating officer of and former executive programme manager at, said: "In addition to the social networking features on, it brings together the fragmented nature of British amateur sport in a format that people are now familiar with.

"It offers a simple and fun way to manage your team or sport participation, equipping players and managers with the tools to get the most out of their amateur sports, while encouraging the kind of dressing room banter that makes people feel part of a team."

"Our goal is to have people from every sport using the site for the day-to-day mechanics of being part of and running a team.

"The site will also help link those players who are looking for a team up with teams looking for players."
