The AC Douglas Tournament is Niagara’s oldest running organized soccer tournament. Heading into its 54th consecutive season, the AC Douglas tournament has become a staple in many soccer players’ summer schedules.
The reason it has lasted this long? Niagara Falls Soccer (NFS) has a solid organizational structure that includes a backbone of volunteers, players, coaches, family and friends. Visiting teams from all across Ontario get the opportunity to not only play some fun, fast-paced exciting soccer, but also the opportunity to check out one of the eight natural wonders of the world!
When a tournament is over half a century old, history plays a big part in its success but AC Douglas organizers understand that it is important to create new and unique experiences for participants. This year, a unique partnership has been formed between NFS and Game On Mobile, a Niagara-based app developer.
Game On Mobile’s mission is to provide athletes and their families with the ability to check scores as they happen. The app also provides standings, locations, and announcements. Game On Mobile’s app is free, with absolutely no strings attached, and currently has over 400,000 users with the number constantly growing worldwide.
“Game On Mobile is going to be a huge help in making sure all players and coaches are informed at all times! With fast real-time scoring, this app is the future of sports event management. I would recommend this to every sports organization,” said NFSC Head Administrator Christina Starnges.
NFS is looking forward to offering the Game On Mobile app to players, coaches and parents so they can get directions to venues, view real-time scoring on all matches, view standings and updates, and get important announcements about cancellations and game changes. The app can be accessed through Gameonmobile.com where it is downloadable on both android and Apple devices.
This partnership allows everyone involved in the tournament to have a convenient, more engaging, and user-friendly experience. This year’s tournament will run on August 6 and 7. More information is on the tournament website, www.acdouglastournament.com
