PlayCam is very excited to announce 2 new PlayCam pitches at the Goals Tolworth venue in South West London.
Forging new partnerships
Goals football is one of the UK’s leading small-sided football operators, who are dedicated to 5-A-Side and 7-A-Side football. With 46 venues across the United Kingdom and over 30 years in the business, PlayCam are thrilled to be working with this prestigious operator. The Goals Tolworth is one of their top performing venues across the UK.
A recording service with a difference
Unlike other recording services, where players need to hit a button to record, PlayCam captures the whole game. This ensures PlayCam doesn’t just capture amazing goals, but spectacular goalkeeping saves, individual moments of skills and the funny fails. All of which are mid-flow in the game, where play can’t stop to hit the button.
Another unique feature of PlayCam is the time it takes to produce the game recordings. At the Goals Tolworth venue, players can watch back their performances in just 40 minutes after the final whistle. Meaning players don’t need to wait days or weeks to see that magic moment.
The third London venue to partner with PlayCam
Goals Tolworth are the third 5-A-Side footballing venue to adopt the PlayCam recording service. With the new relaxed COVID-19 lockdown rules, most players are again enjoying our recording experience.
PlayCam had a 98.6% video viewing rate on its 228 games recorded throughout August.
PlayCam is thrilled to celebrate reaching 1,000 clip submissions to our website!!!
Reaching the 1,000 football clip submissions in 9 months is an incredible achievement for everyone at PlayCam and we would like to thank all the players that enjoy our service. Capturing over 3,600 hours of footage has produced some fantastic moments and we are delighted to have reached the 1,000 football clip submission milestone!
Since the launch of PlayCam in January 2019, we are completely overwhelmed with the engagement of our football replay service. With so many players using the Clip Creator to crop and share magical moments, we have now built an impressive collection of Goals, Skills and Funny videos.
From the beginning, it’s crucial that PlayCam focused on making the viewer’s experience as best as possible. We achieved this by creating those 15 second clips that our players submit. Having access to multiple angles means that we can really maximise the replay experience. See some our collection here…
Not only amazing goals
Unlike other football replay services that require you to tap the pitch-side button or click a Fitbit, our players don’t need to pause their game to activate recordings. PlayCam records the full duration of the game, so you’re guaranteed to NEVER MISS MAGIC.
This has allowed us to capture more than just amazing goal videos. In-game skills, goalkeeper saves and hilarious fails are featured within our Clips sections…
More than just a football replay
Our football replay service is also utilised for analytical purposes, tracking players performance and positioning. As well as, settling the odd arguments in the pub after the game!
Because we recorded the full game, players (especially in league teams) use our service to scope and scout their next week opponents. Proving that PlayCam can also be used for more than just fun!
We’re excited to unveil four new PlayCam pitches at the St Dunstan’s Enterprise in Catford, South London.
To coincide with the new footballing season in September, St Dunstan’s Enterprise have partnered with PlayCam’s video replay service. The St Dunstan’s centre boasts six 5-A-Side, one 7-A-Side and a full size 3G pitch, that were installed in Spring 2017.
In addition to their third generation pitches, St Dunstan’s esteem centre has undergone some further enhancements over the last 4 months. Brand new changing rooms (men and women), a new reception area and improvements to the cafeteria.
Along with 4 new Netball / Basketball courts for 2019, the St Dunstan’s venue can firmly claim to be one of the best sporting venues in London.
Our video recording pitches
St Dunstan’s Enterprise is the second venue in London (this year) to partner with the PlayCam video replay service. PlayCam will be covering four pitches at the St Dunstan’s site.
The multi-camera service will be available on all four of these pitches – ranging from two cameras on the 5-A-Side football pitches and the four-camera system on the 7-A-Side football pitch. We are looking forward to recording the action from both league and social games.
PlayCam’s four-camera system
PlayCam has also introduced the four-camera system on the 7-A-Side football pitch. This system enables full coverage across the whole pitch, capturing every single magical moment from different angles.
By using the ‘camera switching’ tool on the full recordings, players can track the action along the full length of the pitch. Ensuring that our players will NEVER MISS MAGIC.
A word from St Dunstan’s Enterprise
Gavin Halil, General Manager at St Dunstan’s Enterprise said:
“We’re looking forward to the PlayCam service. We hope that it will be a great addition to our 5-A-Side and 7-A-Side facilities. We’re particularly impressed with how easily shareable and accessible the videos are. I’m sure our players will love this at St Dunstan’s”.
PlayCam look forward to a long and prosperous partnership with St Dunstan’s Enterprise. If you are interested in playing on our St Dunstan’s pitches, book your game now!
PlayCam were delighted to cover round two of the Corporate 5’s Cup. The second round took place at Trent Park Football on the 14th June 2019 and had a host of big names competing for glory!
Round two: Consumer Brands
The Corporate 5’s Cup organisers did a great job to bring some big names to this competition. We were fortunate enough to see the likes of Spotify, Rightmove and Wowcher participate in the event.
With JOE Media officially launching its own 11-a-side football team, the competition looked to be tough. The Joe Media boys managed some impressive performances in the group stages with some amazing team goals and individual performances. Especially the hat-trick from their number 9 – Alastair Griffin. We’re sure he’ll enjoy watching this one back!
Joe Media reached the Quarter Finals. However, a really impressive Wowcher side dominated the match resulting in a humiliating 10-0 defeat! Why not check out the full results of the tournament.
Again, we were treated to some fantastic action and some memorable moments… and moments that others would like to forget (especially the Living Social goalkeeper)

With another month of fine goals and skills to choose from, it was another close race for PlayCam’s March/April clip competition. However, it gave PlayCam much pleasure to award the title of March/April clip winner to Serkan at Trent Park Football.
With a total of over 10,000 video views (1,500 on the PlayCam website and a further 8,500 on Twitter), this spectacular overhead kick from Serkan has been a PlayCam favourite!
As a regular of Trent Park Football, we have seen many brilliant moments from Paris Michaels and the team. Serkan’s goal back in April highlights the quality that amateur and social football brings the footballing world!

Lets see the winning clip
Best of the rest…
As well as this stunning overhead kick, we were also treated to some magical moments from Josh D’Souza and Mitchell Fern. Here are some of our favourites from the March/April clip competition:
by Josh D’Souza The vision to back heel this around the keeper, with his back to goal was great improvisation from Josh.
by Mitchell Fern The nutmeg before the rabona goal was simply exceptional.
PlayCam look forward to seeing more skills and goals in the May/June competition.

by Adonis Pratsides Incredible control and 180 degree volley by Adonis Pratsides back in January. Narrowly missed out on our ‘Goal of the Month’ competition.
Since partnering with Trent Park Football back in January 2019, we have seen some great player engagement with the service. The PlayCam recordings have even inspiring some to produce their own commentary over the PlayCam clips…
