Former All Black launches new social sports app

Former All Black launches new social sports app

Former All Black Kees Meeuws and business partner Christian Kasper today announced the launch of Waterboy, a social sports app which connects grassroots sports clubs, players and fans.

The app is being supported by a number of high profile sports personalities including Ma’a Nonu, Tamati Ellison and former Wallaby George Smith, and is currently being trialled by the Brumbies.

Meeuws says that the idea came from the the fact that he found it difficult to keep up with his kids’ sport while travelling during his professional rugby career.

“Using Waterboy, my wife and other parents can update the kids’ games live from the sideline. They can also share updates with friends and family on Facebook and Twitter, creating this big audience for our local Dunedin rugby club.

“Waterboy gives grassroots sports a voice and lets anyone participate in the excitement that happens from north to south, east to west. It’s live and completely subjective,” he says.

There are a number ways to get involved with Waterboy. Sports clubs and schools can sign up online and use the app as a tool for communicating with members, friends and supporters, as well as broadcasting all their teams’ games live.

Fans can use Waterboy to contribute their own updates from the sideline or to find some interesting games they can’t be at and join in the conversation.

“Waterboy is sports from every angle, not just one,” adds Meeuws. “It’s a really fun and simple way to connect people who love to follow sport of any kind, across the country and the world!”

Visit waterboyapp.com for further information or download the app from the iTunes app store and join in the conversation.

Waterboy has been launched in partnership with Fairfax Media, with additional support from The ICEHOUSE.
