Clubforce has signed a new three year deal to become the official data partner of the Federation of Irish Sport.
Clubforce, which is already used by a large number of FAI and GAA clubs across the country offers a management platform that allows club volunteers to efficiently manage all aspects of their club from a single interface, significantly reducing paperwork and clerical errors, improving data integrity and saving precious volunteering time in the process.
The platform ensures all administration, fundraising and communications are managed securely via desktop and mobile app and are supported by real-time reporting.
“We’re delighted to have Clubforce on board as a partner of the Federation,” said CEO Mary O’Connor.
“They are in a really exciting period of growth and development that will only benefit Federation members over the next couple of years.”
“Their work to date has seen them revolutionise club management on the ground and made the lives of the many thousands of volunteers running our sports clubs easier. As our members know, our recently commissioned Investec report and the reintroduction of the Volunteers in Sport Awards, have highlighted the value of volunteers to our local clubs and communities and we are delighted to have a partner that can work so closely with those volunteers in a resource and support capacity.”
“We are really pleased to be approved as the official data partner of the Federation of Irish Sport,” added Clubforce CEO and long time friend of Sport for Business Warren Healy.
“It is recognition of the efforts of our team as we have grown to become the preferred sports club management system on the island of Ireland.”
“We look forward to working with the Federation and its members as we embark on the next phase of development at Clubforce. This partnership underpins our commitment to making the life of club volunteers easier and we believe the data clubs gather through Clubforce can give the Federation meaningful insight into grassroots participation and volunteering, which in turn will amplify the voice of Irish sport.”
Sport for Business will shortly announce details of a number of regional Sports Club Hub Roadshows covering aspects of club management from fundraising and sponsorship to grant applications.
