Wanderers starBrendon Santalab might be best known for his impact on Australian football’s biggest stage, but it’s at grassroots level where he plans to make his mark alongside his brother Michael.

The Wollongong-bornduo have helped develop an app, known as My Game Guru, which they hope canassist families managetheir busy weekend sportschedules.

The app will allow users to select teams their localsteams and have access to schedules, maps to venuesand updates on local council ground statuses from council.

It was launched in the Illawarra this week, close to 18 months after the idea wassparked by a simple Saturday morning conversation.

“Myself and one of the other co-founders, both of our wives didn’t know how to get to one of the other kids games and the idea came up in conversation,” Michael Santalab explains.

“We thought we need an app for this and the conversation got rolling from there.”

For Brendon, who had another stellar season for the Wanderers in 2015-16, the process has been a welcome distraction to life away from the pitch.

“It has been great journey,” he said.

“Football on the pitch has been a success for me this year and it is great to have something off it as well.

“We seen there was a need for this at grassroots level across all sports and I feel we have it covered now.”

The app will first be targeted at local football in the Illawarra first, but there areplansto cast a much wider net.

Contact hasalready been madewith several Sydney associations, with one eye even further abroad.

“Our aim is to cover Australia wide and then we have tapped into a few markets overseas already,” Michael Santalab said.

“We are definitely looking to take this global.

“We have a few connections with some countries in Europe so we have put some feelers out there with the idea and them seeing the demos they are pretty happy to run with it.”

The end goal is for the app to able to provide a similar service to all sports.
