The Irish FA has announced a new official partnership deal with a Northern Ireland company which has developed software to simplify the booking of sports facilities.
Pitchbooking’s online system has already been adopted by more than 1000 sports facilities across the UK, Ireland and the USA.
The Irish FA believes the company can support the development of football in Northern Ireland by streamlining the booking of facilities.
Pitchboking will be building a bespoke booking platform for numerous Irish FA Foundation programmes, including EIectric Ireland Shooting Stars, McDonald’s Fun Football and Irish FA Football Camps.
Stephen Bogle, Head of Sales and Marketing for the Irish FA, said: “We’re delighted to be working with the team at Pitchbooking.
“We’re confident that not only will their service help local clubs and councils to maximise the use of their facilities but that the new online booking platform that they are helping us to deliver will enhance the customer journey and make it easier than ever to both book on to and to manage our programmes across Northern Ireland.”
NICSSA (Northern Ireland Civil Service Sports Association) Sport and Leisure as well as Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council are among the company’s customers.
Shea O’Hagan, CEO at Pitchbooking, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with the Irish FA to provide booking software for its Foundation programmes in what is a landmark partnership for us.
“In addition to this we are excited to continue supporting the development of football locally by working with Irish FA-affiliated facilities to streamline their booking processes.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
