What is it?
KickDudes, the world’s new soccer community on mobile phone, lets you 
connect with everyone who plays football so you can form a team or find the best football field in your area. The app also lets your teammates rate your performance after the game, and these ratings will become your “ability score” for the next match. 
 
Who’s behind it? 
  • Khomkrid Lerdprasert, founder
  • Rangsarit Chaiwet, co-founder
  • Tesser Phutthasen, UI/UX
  • Arnon Kijlerdphon, front-end
  • Nipat Srisawad, graphic design
  • Nuttapon Pramoolsin, Android
  • Witchaiwat Sakunthongaram, back-end
 
Inspiration:
“We are a new company comprised of people who have been in the IT business for more than 15 years, and we all decided to come up with a new innovation. I have been working without rest for two weeks on this application, before submitting it for True Incube 2014. We were part of the last 10 teams. KickDudes is meant for those who want to play football, but are not free at the same time or are in different places. Our application also helps football field owners to cut down on the time their fields are left idle,” said the founder Khomkrid Lerdprasert. 
 
Records: 
Winner in E-Inclusion and E-Community Category, Thailand ICT Awards 2015.
One of the top 10 team finalists, True Incube 2014.
 
Fun facts 
17 football field owners have shown interest in the application.
 
Current move

Goal
Aim to expand across Asia and build football communities in other countries.
