Website description: We want to create a website exclusively for Loughborough University students that connects those looking to partake in a team sport e.g Football, Basketball and are looking for either a game to join or extra players to join their game.
The website has two main features - Create and Join.
Create - This should allow teams to advertise an availability to play by giving the time, location of the game, and number of players needed. There should also be an ‘Additional information’ box where the host can give more information regarding the game e.g. T-shirt colour, type of surface.
Join - The website will need to allows players who are looking to join a game to view the various games that require extra members in the form of a newsfeed or map. Here users will need to be able view all the team games that require extra members. Someone can show interest in a particular game by pressing an ‘Interested’ button which then releases their contact information and allows the user hosting the event to contact that individual. Notifications is an additional feature that can be enabled within the app if a user wants to be notified every time a game is posted for a particular sport.
Once confirmation has been made and the team has enough players the game, the host will be able to remove the post by pressing a button saying spaces filled. If not pressed, the game will remain on the newsfeed until the end of the time stated in the post. There needs to be an option available to those that have created events to view past events and be able to re-post them - this caters for those running an event on a weekly basis.
