Ray Austin is determined to change the game.
The former Bear enlisted semi-pro teams the Lincoln-Way Patriots and Lake County Renegades to help him test out a mobile app at Player’s Indoor Sports.
The Social Football League app is a new, interactive concept that combines football, gaming and reality. It’s the first of it’s kind and although it’s in the beginning stages, Austin says he sees this app as the next step in gaming.
“They’re sitting at home, in bed, probably at the bar. Doing what ever they want to do, but they’re playing The Social Football League. So we want it to be not only interactive, but we want it where I don’t have to be at the stadium to play football. This is about as live as video gaming can get,” said Austin, Co-Owner of The Social Football League.
The app is still early in development. If created, The Social Football League would be the first interactive, live sporting event.
