New technology for East of Scotland Teams

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, 

I'm looking for super fans of Non-league clubs to help test a brand new technology platform built in Scotland for fans to do the following things:

1. buy digital tickets for home matches rather than queue for paper ones.

2.  be rewarded for loyalty and recognised by the club for every penny spent with the club.

The overall aim is to increase people coming down to home games, putting more money into the club and hopefully, it will help clubs of all sizes build a more sustainable, local and loyal base of fans.

If you would like to potentially get involved in testing send me a message.

Cheers folks

Queueing for paper ones... you're lucky to get a raffle ticket as you go into games, with takings collected in tupperware tubs - suggest a bit of market research here... !

Haha fair play although that might be the case for some clubs but not others.  How many fans tend to come down to your games?

Have you ever been to a game of "Non League" in Scotland?

I have been to a few games yes and plan to go to more. Can you suggest a good match soon close to Edinburgh to get along to? Been to see Spartans, Linithgow Rose and Bonnyrigg Rose so far.

A loyalty scheme similar to what some golf clubs do with credit to spend in the clubhouse included in the price of a season ticket might work for some clubs. However, clubs who have integrated social clubs are not universal. You need to also remember that few, if any, will have spare cash to invest in the initial outlay of installing and administering new technologies. The typical demographic of the volunteers who run non-league clubs is also not the most likely to be those who are willing to embrace this sort of thing especially if there is no proven successful examples.

This is true and love the credit example, not something we've built in but definitely, a great way to get much needed cash spent at clubs.

The overall idea would be for the platform to be scalable based on fans that have bought something in the last year. So for a club with 50 fans it will be super cheap and for clubs in the championship, it would be more costly. We're also looking at % transaction fees as another option so clubs only have a cost when they make money themselves. 

The idea being everyone from non league up to just below the premier league can benefit.

It's not a bad idea, indeed there's been talk on the championship on the need for clubs to modernise in a similar way to you suggest.

However the fact this is being talked about at that level means non-league is a mile away from even thinking about such systems .

IMO you would better approaching clubs at that level even if it means that limited testing only occurs.

That’s the reply I would expect from your neighbours over the Flints, means they won’t get as many  penalties from TC diving!!!

nonleaguescotland.org.uk is your best bet with a list of upcoming fixtures.

Also worth checking the Groundhopper app

I think https://scottishfootballfixtures.wordpress.com is a far better site for fixtures, much better lay-out and kept up to date far more frequently.
