If you're planning on participating, please read the Carnival Guidelines. Check out Mr. Linky for HUNDREDS of great Bloggy Giveaways!!


Footbo is especially relevant for parents and grandparents of school-aged children who may be participating in club or school soccer teams. Parents & players can share photos, videos, blog about upcoming events and schedules, and generally stay organized and connected with all the




Make sure you checkout the Amatuer page.
Just because you don't play at Old Trafford, Maracana or Camp Nou doesn't mean you don't belong alongside the big boys. Whether you play in local amateur league or you're a devoted park player, Footbo is the online home ground for you and your team.




What You Can Do As A Player:


Add your player profile and write about your football career
Allow others to become fan of yours
Let other users add articles and blog posts to your biography
Show off your skills by uploading media of your greatest moments




What You Can Do As A Team:


Add your own team page and allow other users to become fans
Keep track with game schedules and results
Create and discuss line-ups and upcoming matches
Track game events, grade each other's performances and vote for the Man of the Match




Blogs:


Read up on what the real fans have to say! Check out the "Blog of the Day", the most recent as well as the most popular blogs on Footbo. Exclusively on Footbo, don't miss their featured bloggers including international top players and renowned journalists. Finally, this is your place to share your views and make yourself heard. Just start writing and post your own blog on Footbo!


We checked out the amateur part of the site and it was very easy to use! We started by creating our profile. The site offers individual as well as team profiles! You can include your very own stats and share photos and/or videos of you in action!
My son thought it was cool that you can create a customized page just for his team! These pages include team pictures, videos, and stats of your team. The site is a great practice for team members to coordinate practice and game schedules. If I were as dedicated to the sport as they are in Europe, I’d probably be on it every day! This site reminds me a lot of Facebook! On this site instead of having friends you have fans!
The tutorial is a great way to gain more info about this super cool site!
