We are delighted to announce that our partnership with the Welsh Sports Association (WSA) will continue, reaffirming our commitment to supporting its members with innovative technology solutions.

Our innovative technology solutions, including our flagship product, The Sport:80 Platform, are utilised by a number of WSA members, including Wales Netball, Welsh Gymnastics, Hockey Wales, and more. 

The partnership, established in 2018, has been instrumental in assisting Welsh sports organisations by streamlining their operations, enhancing membership management, and meeting their compliance and safeguarding requirements. 

By continuing this partnership, the WSA and Sport:80 will aim to build upon the strong foundations already created, ensuring that members have access to cutting-edge tools and capabilities that can drive their success, for example: 

  • Comprehensive CRM and Membership Management Technology: Our product suite includes a wide array of features tailored to the needs of National Governing Bodies (NGBs), supporting the management of memberships, competitions, and more, with ease.
  • Streamlined Compliance and Safeguarding: The integration of the WSA's DBS service, which is run through its trading arm Vibrant Nation, simplifies the process of handling DBS records, ensuring compliance while reducing administrative burden.
  • Data Management and Reporting: Powerful data management and reporting features allow WSA members to manage, segregate and analyse all of the data the organisation collects. 
  • Donation Tool: Quickly and easily collect donations from members and non-members to fundraise for good causes, initiatives and programmes. 
  • Club Management: Our club membership functionality allows clubs to easily promote their activities and streamline their operations.

“We are delighted to be renewing our agreement with the WSA, as we continue working towards our shared goal of providing market-leading technologies to the Welsh sport and leisure sector", said Jonny Turner, Chief Operating Officer at Sport:80.
“This partnership has already supported us in forming successful relationships with several Welsh NGBs, and we look forward to establishing many more through our ongoing work with the WSA. 
“We are incredibly excited to continue our contribution to the growth and development of the Welsh sporting landscape, collaborating with the passionate and dedicated team at the WSA to create a more connected and innovative landscape for their community.”

Tom Sharp, Commercial Manager at the Welsh Sports Association, also expressed his excitement about the renewal. He said: "We are delighted to renew our agreement with Sport:80 for a further five years."

"The Sport:80 team have added significant value to our membership base, with a first-class solution at terrific rates.  They have remained innovative, and the solution has evolved significantly over the last few years, to incorporate greater data and insight features, club membership and donations modules, and an integration with our DBS service for Sport & Leisure.
“We have seen a significant number of our members adopt the Platform, which is really positive and will allow us to improve efficiencies and make further enhancements as a collective moving forward.”
