Press Release   •   Feb 24, 2011 13:08 GMT

Goals Soccer Centres has released an innovative iPhone application that provides its growing base of football members with access to their league results and tables.

London, February 24th 2011 Goals Soccer Centres announced today that it has released an iPhone application in partnership with mobile experts Adactus Ltd www.adactus.co.uk. With 41 centres in the UK and having opened in Los Angeles, Goals has cemented its strategy to innovate and lead the industry. The application offers its customers real-time access to their own team results and league positions. Free to download from Apple’s iTunes store, this innovative app allows customers to configure their iPhone application to provide information for their preferred soccer centre and monitor their team’s progress. It also uses the unique GPS navigation software on the iPhone to allow new and visiting customers access to the latest navigation technology to ensure they get to their game and event on time for the all important kick off.

Goals chose to work with Adactus Ltd based in Thame, Oxfordshire who were able to provide an advanced user experience that not only builds on the positive national brand created by Goals but also provides a mobile application that offers their members one of the most advanced applications available in terms of functionality and ease of use.

5 a side truly is a whole new ball game at Goals. They already provide an industry-leading advanced website, also provided by Adactus Ltd, which provides interactive “full service” online booking, unique to the industry, and personalised team manager reporting. The Goals mobile application extends this level of service to customers whilst on the move and at their own convenience and is available free of charge to anyone choosing to download it. The website and mobile application really take all the hassle out of organising and playing a game of 5 a side and leaves the team at Goals to focus on the customer experience, which they have as the cornerstone of their market-leading brand position.

Commenting on the new application, Goals Managing Director Keith Rogers said “With the continued expansion of our business into new locations in 2011, I am delighted to introduce the Goals iPhone application to our customers to provide free mobile access to track their team’s progress within their soccer centre. 5-aside football is the fastest growing part of football and we want to make our soccer centre services available to a growing mobile audience”.

Adactus Managing Director Chris Hall said “We have provided Goals with their information systems since 2004 and are delighted to have delivered their first iPhone application. Goals is an example of our ability to provide large scale customised applications with intuitive and mobile friendly user interfaces that can provide Goals customers with a fast and personalised user experience. This is a vital ingredient for any iPhone application that will be used many times”
