Plei expands to Tampa

Lightning, Buccaneers, Rays… is there any room for Plei? 😅
Way back in late 2018, the Plei App began its journey in Miami. 😎
From the 305 with love, we extended our reach to Broward County in early 2019. After briefly heading over to H-Town in mid-2019 to make our debut outside of Florida, we spun back to our home state in early 2021, this time establishing ourselves in O-Town. Back down in South Florida, we continued our dominance in late 2022, further upgrading our presence to include West Palm Beach, giving us Tri-County status. 🌴
After a lot of planning and hard work, we decided it was finally time to put down another pin in the Sunshine State. It’s been a long time coming, but we’re proud to announce that we have officially made it to Tampa, Florida! 📍
This expansion is a significant milestone for a lot of reasons, but the most important is that Tampa ballers now have a pickup soccer app at their disposal! The Plei App has been thriving in major Florida regions like South Florida and Orlando for some time now, and the introduction of Plei to Tampa brings the joy of the beautiful game to a new community of ballers hungry to step onto the pitch and enjoy their passion. 😊
Tampa Bay is known for its vibrant sports culture - boasting the likes of the Buccaneers in the NFL, the Lightning in the NHL, the Rays in the MLB and the Rowdies in the USL - as well as its diverse population, making it the perfect canvas for Plei’s dynamic platform where ballers from every corner of the city can come together, play the beautiful game and create lasting, meaningful connections. 🫂
All this being said, let’s all welcome Tampa to the #PleiFamily. ❤️‍🔥
To ease our way into the Tampa Bay pickup soccer community, we will start by partnering with a well-known multi-sport complex known as BT Sports Academy, located in Pinellas Park! You can read more about this facility in the next section. ⏭️
To introduce ourselves properly to all of our Tampa ballers, we will be offering debut pickup games at BT Sports Academy, completely for free! 🤩 Sign ups are available now, so download the Plei App from the App Store or the Google Play Store today! ⚽
Our missions of connecting as many people as possible through the game we all love and, more importantly, giving everyone access to playing on their own terms, are far from over.

The Plei App has officially expanded into our 18th market, Tampa!
As always, we want to thank all of you for your continued support and positive feedback. Only a few years ago, Plei was just a dream in our minds, and seeing the reaction from our community is something that inspires us more and more each day. We will continue to work day and night to make sure playing soccer with Plei is one of the most enjoyable experiences of your life. It’s all for the #LoveOfTheGame 🌎
We are so pumped to expand our Plei Family and connect players to another city in the United States. 17 regions and 12 states later, Plei is still only just getting started, so stay tuned as we continue to reach far and wide across the country with the ultimate goal of launching in every state! Will you be the first person to play in all of the Plei App Regions?

Let’s play some fútbol, Tampa! ⚽
