Pitchero, the UK’s leading provider of digital grassroots sports technology, has acquired rivals Teamer, Club Website and Fixtures Live.
It means that Pitchero’s active membership now stands at over 22,000 clubs with 160,000 active teams and unites over 2 million members - players, parents, coaches and club officials across grassroots and semi professional sport.
With over 2 million members, the new Pitchero Group is the leading digital grassroots sports platform across the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Leeds-based Pitchero supports grassroots clubs and participants through technology, making it easier to coordinate teams, grow revenue and manage clubs online.
The Pitchero network now reaches tens of thousands of clubs across the globe. Earlier this year, it launched a new flagship platform designed for sports federations called Pitchero Together which is currently being trialled by the Finland FA, the Scottish FA, the Welsh FA and England Hockey.
According to CEO, Mark Fletcher, this acquisition is the first step to bringing the UK and Ireland in line with rest of the world, a step that should prove positive for grassroots sports:
“It is an exciting time for grassroots sports and we are proud to be at the forefront of development, communication and activation and we have big plans for both Pitchero and Teamer.”
Pitchero and Teamer will continue under their current names but the expanded platform can look forward to a bright future.
Jon Milsom, Pitchero CTO added: “Users of both Teamer and Pitchero will be unaffected by the acquisition, but over time players, coaches, parents, sponsors and advertisers will begin to see additional benefits of being part of the UK’s biggest grassroots sports network.”
