USATF & the Sport:80 Platform in a nutshell graphic

“The difference between Sport:80 and our old system is night and day. 


Our previous system was crashing daily, it was antiquated and unreliable. With Sport:80 we have more control, it has improved the user experience for our members and there’s a significant improvement to the integrity of our data.


We are no longer constantly firefighting and can be completely focused on planning for the future.”
