Google And Nike Launch Soccer Community



Nathan has details of Joga, a new site for soccer (real FOOTball) fans launched by Google and Nike.

From the Joga site…

Joga is a place to meet other soccer players, share your own soccer experiences and enjoy photos and videos from around the world.

Membership is by invite only. Let’s hope this is actually used by soccer fans as opposed to criminals. ;-)

UPDATE: Lincoln Ellis of Goal.com emailed me to let me know that Goal.com is already doing what Joga aims to offer…

Goal.com – which has a 10yr track record of publishing in over 10 languages and counts members from 203 of the 207 FIFA sanctioned countries – as the Grandfather of this idea. Not coincidentally, Goal.com is launching its own revamped community site – my.goal.com – April 15th”
