Sikkaa: A Social Network For Amateur Football Players And Teams

| Apr 6, 2011 | comment 13 Comments

Sikkaa is a new social network type site launched from Kuwait and that targets amateur football (soccer) players and teams, helping them to promote themselves and organize matches and tournaments between them.

The word “Sikkaa” is an Arabic word that means “road”; which has been used in Kuwait for some time to describe the alleys and streets where children gather to play football, one of the most popular sports in Kuwait and around the region.

Sikkaa enables users to create their profiles as football players, upload photos and videos showing their skills at the game, create or join teams with their friends, challenge other teams, as well as participate in tournaments and events organized around them.

Just like Facebook, the site asks users to provide their real names and to provide accurate information, in an attempt to provide a quality service for everyone involved. There is also a restriction that a user can’t create nor join a team of the opposite sex, even though all member profiles and teams can be browsed.

Users can login with their Facebook or Twitter accounts, and can have the site automatically post their activity stream to the services, such as winning an award or joining a new team.

Sikkaa was founded and recently launched by Abdullah Alshemmeri from Kuwait. It’s available in both English and Arabic, and currently only covers Kuwait, but the plan is to grow and expand it to cover the region and the world.

The site being new, it might still feel a bit rough around the edges design wise, but the idea is a new one, for the region at least, and could be really interesting and helpful for many fans of the game around the Arab world who are involved in organizing and playing in these amateur football tournaments and who had to do it offline or through forums in the past.
