Upgrade your club website in 2021

As you know, your club website is your online headquarters. Your single source of truth around team selection, sponsors, club fundraising and much more.

With lockdowns, stuttering fixture lists and the financial implications of Covid-19, it’s never been more important to get that right.

blog-club-websiteWhy would you move your club website?

Long gone are the days that a website was a few basic pages of text and a phone number. Your club can do so much more.

Naturally, the first step is to review what you do and what your club’s goals are. Fire up Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Whatsapp and discuss the website, what’s missing, what could work better.

For so many clubs, that will revolve around bringing in more money and saving time and processes for time-strapped volunteers.

So, if you’re looking at your current online presence and think ‘we can improve’, read on...



Why Pitchero could be the solution

60,000 active sports teams use Pitchero at present. That’s 10,000 live club websites and 1.5m registered users.

A professional, easy-to-use website template that’s hosted by Pitchero and backed up with a support team is waiting.

As everyone has a profile and can be assigned club roles, it’s possible to share out responsibilities and access.

No more headaches because ‘the web guy’ has left the club with the logins to everything.

Pitchero is fully integrated

What does that mean? All typical club activities including member registration, training and team selection and paying match fees are handled through one, central system.

Why use Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp and countless other applications (and all the separate logins) to do bits of managing a club when it can be simplified?

Make more money for your club

Your club can collect online payments through your website, saving time and offering convenience for members.

Our research has shown clubs collect up to 30% more revenue by offering this to their members. Setting up an online shop takes no time at all.

Yes, you can do bank transfers but who’s the club official having to reconcile all those payments?

With Pitchero, set up recurring payments, send payment reminders, ditch paperwork and be open for business 24/7. Sell anything from club kit to membership or match fees.blog-club-security

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stable, secure and always updated

No more worries about website back-ups or getting your head about the complexities of hosting. Your club website includes unlimited hosting, safe and secure on Amazon servers, leaving the focus on delivering sport.

We are constantly updating, improving and adding features throughout the year too. 

PH Club App

Pitchero is a lot more than just a website

Every club website comes with two free mobile apps.

The Club App (above) is geared towards players, parents and supporters. It shows news, fixtures and results as well as being able to confirm availability and check team selection.

The Manager App is aimed at coaches and managers who want to organise training, pick sides and communicate with players on the move.
