Clubforce Nextgen a game-changer

Latest Clubforce platform combines its experience of working with thousands of sports clubs globally.

Galway-headquartered tech firm Clubforce has revealed its biggest update yet in the form of Clubforce Nextgen.

Clubforce NextGen is designed to significantly reduce the growing administrative burden on club volunteers whilst also helping them grow their fundraising.

“We’ve helped thousands of clubs reach their strategic goals and fundraising targets”

The net result of the innovation from the Galway business is what it claims is Ireland’s most advanced and secure sports club management platform.

There are a wide range of tools for clubs available within the platform. Clubforce NextGen can help streamline membership registration and communication; event registrations (such as Summer Camps); growing a recurring fundraising income; building a club website and communicating within the club.

The platform is fully integrated and incorporates a brand-new mobile app, Clubforce Connect.

“We’ve helped thousands of clubs reach their strategic goals and fundraising targets,” explained Clubforce CEO, Noel Murray. “The NextGen platform builds on this by adding a whole new level of innovation on top.”

Ensuring volunteers are able to fulfil their legal obligations around their club data is also at the forefront of the new platform. Clubforce is the only sports club management platform in Ireland certified to international standards for data security (ISO27001).

“The legal responsibilities and liability around securing club member’s data are very onerous for volunteer-led clubs,” Murray explained. “We have completed this strict certification so that clubs can have peace of mind that when they choose Clubforce, they will have fully met their responsibilities.”

The club product is just one part of a significant investment in innovation for the business. The club platform is designed to form part of a wider digital ecosystem connecting clubs through to leagues, regional, national and international sports associations.

To celebrate the launch, on top of its competitive annual charges, Clubforce is offering additional reductions to new clubs moving to the platform including zero setup fees and a free website builder worth over €300.
