Mobile Football Application – SocaLoca is coming to Uganda thanks to the Jean Sseninde United Academy.
SocaLoca, the best software for football academies, is proud to announce a new partnership with Jean Sseninde United Ltd, the grassroots football club and academy dedicated to the promotion and development of Women’s football in Uganda!
This partnership will assist the Jean Sseninde United academy in creating a space for girls and women to play football in a safe environment via the Mobile Football Application – SocaLoca.
The Jean Sseninde United Association based in Uganda is run by none other than Jean Sseneninde, former defender of Queens Park Rangers W.F.C, Crystal Palace and of course the Ugandan Women’s National Team. In line with our objectives, JSU aims to create a clear and safe pathway for girls who would like to play professionally. As such, SocaLoca will provide the platform for the JSU Academy to organise their football matches and tournaments.
Shakeena Lyken – Head of Partnerships at SocaLoca, is really looking forward to the development of this partnership. She explains, ‘We are extremely excited to have partnered with the Jean Sseninde United Academy. I mean, who wouldn’t be excited to see raw female talent come to life on a platform that is specifically geared towards developing and showcasing grassroots and women’s football. As an organisation, we hope that such visibility will inspire other young girls in Uganda and Africa to participate in the game we all love, and equally aspire to become professional footballers.’
Jean Sseninde explains things from her perspective. ‘As a former player myself, my aim is to create the best global football opportunities for Women. I needed to find a platform that is not only easy to use, but that allows us to effectively manage our academy, promote our initiatives, and organise matches and tournaments in a clear and efficient way – with the safeguarding of our girls at the forefront. SocaLoca not only caters to this via their Academy console – they wholeheartedly align with our vision and core values. I could see no other football technology platform more equipped to see us through this.’
SocaLoca Co-Founder Lionel Foy expressed his delight, ‘We first tested our early prototype in Uganda, this partnership represents an emotional return and an affirmation of our commitment towards the development of women’s and grassroots football in Uganda. We look forward to working with the JSU academy to achieve their goals!’
