Using Sport:80 to host and administer your event not only streamlines the process and saves you volunteer hours, but it is also competitively priced and more cost effective than options like Eventbrite, Wix and ClubEvent.
Through using Sport:80 all entries are linked to Archery GB memberships, so only eligible members can enter, saving you the time of checking membership details at every event. Additionally, you don’t have to manually process entries; it’s all automatic and you can even set features such as capacity to match your venue and sessions, stopping you from accidentally overselling an event.
The cost of using Sport:80’s service is 2%, plus Stripe fees. This is cheaper than many alternative options used in archery, including ClubEvent (3.6% + Stripe fees), Eventbrite (6.95% + £0.59 per ticket sold) and Wix Events (2.5% fee + minimum plan cost of £7.50 p/m).
There is no monthly fee to use Sport:80 to host your events. Fees are only taken on payment, which then is paid via Stripe into your bank account.
Week on week, the most visited page on the Archery GB website is the Competition Finder, with between 1,000-2,200 page visits every seven days. By using Sport:80, archers can discover and book onto your event quickly and easily, making your marketing and promotion even easier - in just a few clicks.
The portal includes a range of reporting, email and analysis tools to make it easier than ever to email entries and check in with how your event marketing is going. Additionally, as it’s all within the platform, all entry data is safely secure and stored within the Members’ Portal.
Archery GB have seen a large rise in people using Apple Pay and other equivalent services to pay for their entries, speeding up the booking process to just a couple of clicks of a button and reducing any friction of needing to have card details to hand. Never fear though, as there is still the option for people to pay via credit/debit card too.
In order to use Sport:80 to administer your events and take payment, you will need to setup a Stripe account. Stripe will be used to take payment and will then pay the money (minus fees) into your bank account.
Stripe is used by many of the top brands, including Amazon, Google and BMW to name a few, which shows how secure and safe it is to use for your tournament. To learn how to setup a Stripe account, please watch this video:
Once you have setup Stripe and connected it to your club, you can now proceed to sanction your event in Sport:80. The following tutorial will guide you through the process of setting this up:
