England Hockey announce Pitchero as Approved Club and League Website Provider
We are excited to announce England Hockey, the National Governing Body for hockey in England has chosen Pitchero as an endorsed provider of club and league websites.
The new ground-breaking partnership managed by England Hockey will help all clubs and leagues create professional websites whilst saving volunteers hours of time each week with innovative mobile apps for team management.
The scheme’s launch includes the development of an integration hub for data at England Hockey delivered by technology partners Ajilon and Inforexx. The hub provides the ability for leagues and clubs to use different platforms but still be able to share important data.
The aim is to help make club and league administrators lives easier by ensuring key information such fixtures, results and league tables are available across systems rather than restricted to one. Over time this should reduce the need for clubs to duplicate effort by entering information multiple times. This approach, linked to the ability to choose your preferred provider, should allow clubs and league to pick a solution that suits them best.
The partners within the scheme and England Hockey are working together to ensure that all systems in the scheme are General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant. More general hockey club guidance on GDPR will be issued very soon by England Hockey.
Mark Fletcher, CEO of Pitchero said:
“Pitchero is the UK's number one provider of hockey club websites with almost 50% of clubs using Pitchero to power their club website and mobile apps.
This innovation by England Hockey is at a perfect time for Pitchero as we launch Pitchero Together a new service designed for National Governing Bodies.
Pitchero fully supports England Hockey and hope other governing bodies follow a similar model as technology plays a crucial role in grassroots sport. Pitchero looks forward to being a key digital partner of England Hockey for many years to come.”
