Football Beyond Borders Partners With New Online Platform

Tue 29th Sep 2015 | Football Governance

London youth charity partners with innovative new online football community, Homefans

Football Beyond Borders is proud to announce a new partnership with Homefans, a community driven platform that connects travelling fans with local fans of their favourite club.

Its peer to peer service enables fans to list, search and book accommodation at locals on match days. Homefans is a service that connects members to a global community of football fans, helping them find a place to stay on match days and allowing them to share their home and hometown with other fans.

People interested in becoming a host fan will have the ability to sign up through the Homefans website and list their room. Visiting individuals and families can then search the host fan database to find hosts to be matched to.

When registering as a host fan, fans will include information on their hosting situation. Additionally, each visiting fan will pay a nightly fee to the host fan. Through the partnership FBB will receive a % of the fee kindly donated by Homefans. Anyone interested in finding out more should head to homefans.net

Luke Verbeek, Homefans founder and CEO said: “We are very proud to partner with Football Beyond Borders. It’s amazing to see what FBB is doing around the world.

“We want to help this great organisation, and unite fans internationally on our new platform. We are looking forward to achieving great things together with Football Beyond Borders, helping them to generate funds for their important projects.”

Jasper Kain, Cofounder and Director of Football Beyond Borders said: "We are delighted to partner with Homefans. What a wonderful idea bringing people together across borders through their love of football. 

“Using football as a tool to unite communities is what Football Beyond Borders is all about. The Homefans initiative embodies our philosophy and is an innovative way for football fans to make friends and generate funds for themselves and for FBB at the same time.

“It's a win win situation for all parties and we are very happy to be involved.”
