NEW: Introducing Superbru Football and Superbru Rugby

In exciting news ahead of what is set to be a very busy few months of sport, we are pleased to finally be sharing a significant Superbru update - the upcoming launches of two brand new apps.

We will soon be launching 'Superbru Football' ahead of the new Premier League season with 'Superbru Rugby' set to follow a few weeks later ahead of the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

More detailed news articles relating to the specifics of each platform will be available in the coming weeks ahead of the launch of each app, but while work continues on getting things app store ready, we've been keen to let you know that they're on the way as well as providing a quick explainer as to why we're building these new apps.

The first thing to say, since many of you are probably already wondering, is that the existing Superbru website and app will continue without any substantial changes. So if you're an experienced bru playing in lots and lots of different tournaments across many sports and like things the way they are, you can rest assured that your Superbru experience isn't about to be turned upside down.

However, we are confident that the new apps will provide a much improved Superbru experience for anyone that plays tournaments in either of our two most popular sports, football and rugby. Both apps will provide new, unique features made possible by their single-sport focus, meaning they'll be a must-download for use alongside our website even if desktop is your preferred platform.

Why are we making new apps?

1. In short, a lot more is possible when we're focusing on a single sport. The new apps will allow us to build football and rugby 'hubs' which are built around a single scoring system and format. This specific focus allows for greater detail and several new features that aren't possible to input cleanly into the existing Superbru app due to the need to cater for so many different sports and tournaments.

2. A more modern, better experience. As already touched upon, these apps should be considered an expansion rather than a replacement of our existing platforms, but they will of course be an upgrade. While the basic functions will naturally be the same in terms of making picks, checking results and viewing leaderboards, much more will be included.

We'll save most of the detail for the upcoming articles that will include a wide range of screenshots, but in addition to providing plenty of extra news, data and several other fresh features within a new layout, we have also worked on greater exposure of your own Superbru performance in terms of your prediction accuracy and the leagues/tournaments you have won over time. If you've been playing Superbru for a while, you can expect to have a 'CV' to be proud of when viewing your profile on the new app for the first time as performance data dated back to whenever you began your Superbru career will all be carried through to these new platforms.

3. Growth. Having built considerable audiences in various sports, we're eager to provide the best experience possible for fans of each of those sports in the hope that more and more people can discover and enjoy playing Superbru. Though it's not feasible for a team of our size to build a dedicated app for each and every sport we cover, we feel football and rugby are good places to start.

When are the new apps available?

We hope to have Superbru Football available to you all in the next couple of weeks, meaning it will be ready to download ahead of the start of several of the major leagues' 2023/24 campaigns including the Premier League, LaLiga, Serie A, Bundesliga and Ligue 1 which we now have a Predictor game for on Superbru for the first time.

Superbru Rugby will arrive a little later in advance of the Rugby World Cup, as the United Rugby Championship and Gallagher Premiership seasons will start later than usual this year due to the RWC. We expect to launch Superbru Rugby towards the end of August.

This article will be updated to include links to separate news articles on Superbru Football and Superbru Rugby once they have been published.

Fantastic! Thanks for hard work team. Think the Rugby App is a great idea. Hopefully, along with this new App, we will see a rise in accompanying Rugby Fantasy tournaments.

Oh dear, the circus is in town.

What caught my eye was POINT 2.

"... we have also worked on greater exposure of your own Superbru performance in terms of your prediction accuracy and the leagues/tournaments you have won over time. If you've been playing Superbru for a while, you can expect to have a 'CV' to be proud of when viewing your profile on the new app for the first time as performance data dated back to whenever you began your Superbru career will all be carried through to these new platforms."

This could be HUGE! Finally some sort of historical ranking system! in the form of a 'CV'. One could use this to vet future pool invitees. Of course I'd need to free up some space by removing 'certain' current members...now where should I start James?

I can't wait to see how it pans out. Well done SB!

You don’t have to download the apps, just carry on the way you are. I’m surprised to hear that you don’t have space on your phone. Perhaps it’s time for an upgrade… 29 Jul 08:01

Hi Jack
With the 2 new apps, will the achievements also reflect on superbru as it was with sportguru many moons ago?
27 Jul 07:34

Hi Bennie, yes, things will be consistent across the platforms. The new apps are an expansion of what we currently offer which means everything is connected rather than separate. For instance, if you make a prediction for a match on the Superbru Football app and then login to our website on a computer, you'll see that your prediction appears there. Things like your caps total will also appear in full on whichever app you are using, but the majority of other stats shown on the football/rugby apps will of course focus upon achievements in those specific sports. 27 Jul 08:17

Christmas come early! Great news Jack, thanks! It’s been a tough couple of years since sport was cancelled by Covid. Launching these apps should add great momentum, returning SB to its upward trajectory. The Rugby World Cup should revive lapsed accounts, and harvest a bevy of freshmen. The Cricket World Cup could do the same. They happen annually, so perhaps a Cricket App might be launched next year? Be great to get the very knowledgeable IPL fans swarming in.

Thanks Superbru staff!

Hi Jack. LoL. This is the best news in decades. I've played for example the Guinness Predictor and Fantasy for a while. An absolute pleasure to do so. Stats spot-on, ext. I just hope that the new Rugby app will include the same characteristics because in the past the Superbru apps stats didn't correspond with the actual stats. Sorry, only once in a while.

No app is capable of making the DStv something to look forward to. Month after month of 1-0, 0-0, 1-1 or 0-1 does my head in.

I go to the occasional live game, not for the football, but for the antics in the stands. Raucous delirium abounds, despite absolutely nothing happening on the pitch. Aside from some brilliant one-on-one moments, and plenty of clowning around, there’s nothing to keep you engaged with the play. 1 Aug 12:34

Hi guys
Off subject but have you thought about making the golf
tournaments like the Sevens?
You will know that the next Sevens season there will be a reduced amount of tournaments probably pretty close to the amount of golf tournaments.
Don't u think it makes sense to do that and have one whole competition
After all golf lasts 4 days and sevens 2 or 3.
