ACE Soccer Scores

What is this startup?

Social soccer score/match picker for soccer/football fans. Focusing on multiple soccer leagues and competitions, even amateur ones. Creating a place where average soccer fans can amicably compete with one another to show they know more about soccer than anyone else.Users can predict match scores, share insights of their favorite teams via in-app chat, user-created blog posts. Gamification on who predicts match outcomes more accurately, who gets more upvotes for match and team write-ups, etc.

Why did I decide to make this startup?

My high school friends and I played Yahoo Sports World Cup Pick’ems game. It was fun. We talked a lot of trash to each other and had a great time even though we all lived apart from each other – it brought us together for the sport we love. After the World Cup, I couldn’t find another pick’ems app for the countries and leagues we follow so I built a very simple one that tracked the English Premier, Scottish Premier, and Italian Serie A leagues as well as the UEFA Qualifiers in 2012. I only opened it up to my friends. It was bad, it was PHP, HTML, CSS – no Javascript whatsoever – and it had to be manually updated daily. I deleted it after a single season. Since then I have tried NUMEROUS times over 6 years to resurrect the app, but each time I get stuck I scrap it and rebuild from scratch. This is my other ‘wishlist’ project – another one I want to complete and be successful.
