FIOFAFI As A Platform

As Tom observed recently, FIOFAFI has become a platform.

With a small group of people (say 15 to 20) who need 10 to 12 to turn up each time in order to play 5, 6 or 7-a-side football once a week, the number who cannot play in a particular week due to work, family and other commitments will vary significantly.

As such, the number available to play each week may fluctuate a lot, say from 2 to 20. Even if it is the case once every few weeks, too often, there will be too few (in which case, the game cannot go on, or extra players need to be enlisted at short notice) or too many (in which case, several people who want to play won’t get a game, or a full game). Further, in any particular week, there may be some who are not available on the day on which the session is scheduled, but may like to play on another day of the week.

With FIOFAFI’s large and growing pool of participants and with sessions every night from Monday to Thursday, the law of averages usually means we get 10 to 12 for each session, and everyone who wants to play gets to play.

Further, anyone who organizes regular 5, 6 or 7-a-side football for working adults can bring their session under the FIOFAFI umbrella. If you make your session available on FIOFAFI, and bring your group onto FIOFAFI, then you and your group can enjoy the benefits of the FIOFAFI system.

The idea that FIOFAFI could serve as a broader platform occurred to me at the end of May 2008 when Andreas and Look Liew asked if we had a couple of people who might want to play in a session that Look Liew organizes on Thursdays, as they were from time to time a couple of players short.

It would also be open for a women’s group to develop along similar lines on FIOFAFI.

Ultimately, it translates to more choice.

    The quid pro quo for organizing sessions on the FIOFAFI platform is that at least a session summary, comprising of at least the line ups and the result, are put up on the blog within a couple of days of the session.
