Footballmates.com puts you in touch with your old team-mates
If you’ve had more clubs than Marcus Bent, or if you’ve just fallen out of touch with your old team-mates, a new website is aiming to put you back in touch with those lucky enough to have been on the receiving end of your exquisite range of passing over the years.
Footballmates.com connects you with all your football mates from throughout your illustrious career.
If you ever wondered what happened to your old team-mates or where your old football pals are playing these days, wonder no more. The Footballmates.com site is effectively a social media platform for your football career, whatever level you were playing.
The site allows you to complete your football history, including all the seasons you’ve played and any teams you’ve ever played for. The site will automatically find all the other players who played with you on your personal profile page.
The great thing about the website is that it doesn’t matter if you are or were playing as a pro or at grassroots level. You’ll find all association-registered clubs from the English, German, Spanish, Belgium, Dutch, France and Italian leagues on the website.
You can select season-by-season which teams you’ve played for from under 9 level through to the first team.
The site started in Holland and is already a huge success there. It already has more than 50,000 members, with stars such as Dirk Kuyt and other professionals setting up profiles to catch-up with old mates.
Users can see where it all started for top footballers. For example, Ruud Van Nistelrooy started his career as a five-year-old at Dutch club Nooit Gedacht. The current crop of players at Nooit Gedacht can match their profiles with Van Nistelrooy and know that they’re starting out on the same path as him.
So you never know who you may have shared clubs with.
