Weekend Warriors

Written by Rano Iskandar. Posted in News, RA News


Weekend Warrior 


During the launch of Weekend Warriors three weeks ago at JKR Sports Complex

Now everyone can play. If you are into football and you don’t have a team or even friends to tag along with you, then fear no more. Weekend Warriors have come up with a solution and for the past three weeks, the method has been successful. According to the founders of Respin Alpha (wwfutsal), the responses have been overwhelming and it was unexpected.

I have met up with Faezal Murni, Founder and CEO of Respin Alpha and Simon Soo, co-founder of Respin Alpha, a few weeks ago before their official launch and I can feel their passion the Weekend Warrior will be a big hit in Brunei Darussalam.

If you look at the bigger picture, there are many winners (win-win situation). Players who doesn’t have a team can play. At the same time, this gives businesses to the premises at JKR and also the referees are being paid too. Furthermore, Respin  Alpha are looking at hiring more locals for their future expansion. So all in all, this is platform created by the company is definitely a win-win situation.

What I truly love about this idea is that you just have to bring yourself after you registered your slot time. Just make sure you bring your own shoes, shin pads (shin protection) and socks. As for the rest, the bibs/vests are provided and even the referees are too.

So first thing’s first, get yourself registered on wwfutsal.com and join a team. The allocated times to choose are normally on a Sunday.

There’s also a leaderboard to keep track of your ranking. You will get points for scoring and even assist. Not bad, huh? Then you can see your rank in the leaderboard posted on the website.

In the works now is the creation of an app for Weekend Warriors. It’s in the pipeline and once the mechanism is stable, the app version will be launched within a few months and this will even make it easier for Weekend Warriors players.

Faezal and Simon recently travel to Jakarta for expansion and that’s the only way to grow instead of relying on the local market. All the best buddies and I’m sure this idea will be also accepted in other countries.

Hopefully on a Sunday, I can spend some time playing in a futsal match using Weekend Warriors. Kudos to the team Respin Alpha on the successful web application.
