FAI agrees partnership with MyClubFinances.com
MyClubFinances.com (MCF) is a cloud-based system that provides sports clubs with a low cost, effective communications and fundraising solution. MCF's Sports Club Administration System delivers a custom-built membership and payment system.
The announcement will see MCF become the preferred partner for a simplified transfer and integration of club data into FAInet. An innovative football management platform, FAInet is being rolled out by the FAI around the country to help leagues and clubs centralise their data including team and player registration into a professional system.
MCF will make it easier for affiliates to communicate and manage memberships which will significantly reduce administration time associated with running a club.
FAI CEO John Delaney welcomed the partnership by saying: "I am delighted that MyClubFinances.com will work with the FAI to benefit grassroots clubs. They have done fantastic work with hundreds of grassroots clubs across the country and we look forward to continuing that progression with them as FAInet reaches more clubs."
MyClubFinances.com CEO Warren Healy said: "The partnership with the FAI is a significant milestone in the life-time of MCF. We are constantly innovating our club management system and this innovation is primarily led by listening to volunteers in the clubs who we work with.
"Almost from the beginning, the clubs took ownership of the development of the system and all we really needed to do was listen to what they needed and then built it."
Healy added that the compliance to General Data Protection Regulations will be part of the MCF administration panel and that the intention is to protect the volunteer by guiding them in what they do with the data.
Clubs will get a first look at the FAInet and MCF integration when workshops begin nationwide next month.
