SportsTG ENTERS UK MARKET

SportsTG has officially entered the sports market in the United Kingdom with the launch of the Rugby Football League’s new technology platform.

The RFL and SportsTG recently rolled out LeagueNet, a new Competition and Participation Management platform built for both grassroots and professional levels of Rugby League.

LeagueNet allows the RFL to obtain accurate participation data and improve player retention and engagement, whilst streamlining game administration for Rugby League stakeholders.

RFL Systems Manager, Richard Donlon, said the implementation of LeagueNet would support Rugby League’s digital and customer focus.

“We have to put the sport in a position where it can meet the needs of both existing volunteers and the next generation. These are the people who give their time to support our sport , and they deserve a fully digital experience,” says Donlon.

The launch of LeagueNet has allowed the Rugby Football League to achieve some significant milestones for the organisation, including:

  • Consolidating functionality of five existing technology systems
  • Using one database to manage professional and community players, alongside coaches, match officials and volunteers
  • Providing a complete online solution for match official registrations and appointments
  • Allowing Leagues to create and manage their own fixtures
  • Giving Clubs the ability to enter their own results and statistics online
  • Processing domestic and international transfers and permits online
  • Replacing plastic ID cards with an online version
  • Successful pilot of online player registrations in preparation for a wider rollout in 2018

RFL Chief Operating Officer, Ralph Rimmer, says the LeagueNet system will help the modern day administrator run their competitions more efficiently.

“Sport is constantly evolving, and our priority is putting the needs of our community first,” says Rimmer.

The launch of LeagueNet is the beginning of a five-year partnership between the RFL and SportsTG.

“The Rugby Football League have a clear vision for their digital future, and the launch of LeagueNet has allowed them to achieve the first phase of this transformation,” says SportsTG CEO, Glen McGoldrick.

“We look forward to assisting the Rugby Football League with their technology strategy well into the future.”

THE RFL JOINS FORCES WITH SPORTSTG TO TRANSFORM GAME ADMINISTRATION 

The Rugby Football League (RFL) has made a strong commitment to the modernisation of the sport’s administration after signing a five-year partnership with SportsTG.

The partnership will launch a competition and participant management system across both grassroots and professional levels of the sport.

The platform will allow administrators to manage their competitions digitally, from online team sheets to scheduling games, entering match results to organising Match Officials. Participants will also be able to register and pay their club fees online where applicable.

RFL Chief Operating Officer, Ralph Rimmer, says the competition management system will help the modern day Rugby League administrator run their competitions more efficiently.

“Sport is constantly evolving, and our priority is putting the needs of our community first. We are driving through some considerable change currently in an effort to deliver great Rugby League experiences in everything that we do, and this is a significant step. In particular, we want to help busy volunteers, who give so much to Rugby League, to save time, and to benefit from greater insight into player behaviour and retention. By giving our clubs and leagues the best tools to help run leagues and competitions, we will give even greater value to participants, volunteers and administrators.”

SportsTG has provided the sports industry with leading digital solutions for over 15 years, and boasts a client base that services over 26 National Sporting Organisations across the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand.

The National Rugby League (NRL) in Australia has been using SportsTG’s competition and membership management system since 2003, and credits the system for helping them to engage with their grassroots players whilst simplifying administration.

In the past two years, SportsTG has seen a 70% increase in clubs opting to move from paper registration forms to processing registrations online, demonstrating the importance for sports to keep up with the needs of their community.

SportsTG CEO, Glen McGoldrick, says:

“We live in a world where technology is designed to save us time and make life easier, and proven, robust technology is vital to the modern day sports administrator.”

“We’re absolutely thrilled to be assisting the RFL and their community effectively run their competitions and manage their participants online.”

Majority owned by News Corp, SportsTG officially launched their new brand in August 2016 after a merger between FOX SPORTS PULSE and IMG Sports Technology Group.

The RFL’s competition and participant management system will be available from early 2017, and will be rolled out across the game in stages.
