How do sports clubs grow their revenue? Generating enough income to sustain all of your teams and ambitions can feel hard enough.
So, how does growth by 30% sound?
Using all of the tools that clubs on Pitchero have at their disposal isn't a quick fix. It still requires volunteers to dedicate their time and energy - but there are ways to monetise more and improve what you offer as a club.
Embrace online payments
Clubs not taking online payments are missing out on income. It doesn't take long to set up. You could dedicate 15 minutes from start to finish and you'd have still time left for a brew and a biscuit.
**Yes, there are payment fees but clubs typically report back to us that they see a spike in collecting income.
The beauty of it is the flexibility. Collect membership fees, sell kit, collect sponsorship or receive fundraising donations.
It's a 3-step process. If you have access to your Club Control Panel and your club's bank details to hand, away you go!
Club Control Panel > Payments >Create GoCardless or Stripe Account (payment provider).

“If someone signs up online, it’s much, much easier. All of us are volunteers and we definitely encourage people to go online, I wouldn’t be able to do it otherwise.”
