launches beta version

Footboost ( launched today a beta version of their site. At users pick or create a virtual battle between two football players, active or retired, to decide who´s the best in the sport.

In a battle, you can vote for your favorite player and post comments to support your vote. Although the majority of users come from England the site will attract football/soccer fans from around the world and will profile footballers from the English Premier League and major international FIFA leagues.

“In football, it is sometimes hard to compare players from different generations to one another to determine who is better. Even more, players from the same generation are often difficult to compare, given the nature of team sport. We wanted to find out what real sport fans think about footballers across generations, thereby creating interesting debates about the game you love. That´s why we created”, said Ed the General Manager of the site.

Although users of will be able to create their own battles eventually, during the beta version the administrators created the following battles:

John Terry (Chelsea) vs. Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United)

Lukas Podolski (Bayern Munich) vs. Theo Walcott (Arsenal)

Wayne Rooney (Manchester United) vs. Alan Shearer (England)
