Join SSIA Members like Casco Bay Sports, Philly Sports Leagues, Sons of Pitches FC, Texas Sport and Social Club — Waco, and Tri Sports Social Club on the leading platform (web & app) for running pickup sports!
Extra field time? Holiday weekend without leagues running? In between seasons? Imagine having a group with thousands of engaged players. Whenever you post a new game, you watch the attendees list fill within minutes, and allow the automatic waitlist do it’s thing while you’re playing with your kids or preparing dinner. Assign an event admin if you can’t be there, and watch as a beautiful pickup game unfolds. It’s that simple.
Most of our customers work with a very small team, manage a lot of tasks, and value their time immensely. They don’t have time for the back and forth, repetitive, and time consuming processes of managing pickup. We know there are things you would rather do than see if an event is going to fill up.
Once groups start using OpenSports, they want to use it for everything, including Sitting Volleyball and Lunchtime pickup soccer!
If you think about pickup as an initial touchpoint to get people into your leagues, to replace marketing spend, and also create a new source of revenue, it’s an absolute no brainer.
Atlanta’s largest in town pickup soccer group and league, Sons of Pitches FC (SOPFC), also a SSIA Member, runs pickups next to leagues, and often times, players who are just feeling things out at pickup realize that they want consistency. SOPFC loves seeing conversion of pickup players to league players.
Chicago Fire Recreational Soccer (CFRS) used to see pickup as a way to get people into leagues. But have been pleasantly surprised to see how much revenue has been brought through pickup.
SSIA Members run anywhere between 3–7 pickup games per week, charge around $5–10 per player, and have anywhere between 20–60 players per event, so monthly revenue ranges from $3600 — $20,000+
OpenSports uses a payment system called Stripe that is fully integrated with our platform (web + iOS and Android app) so you can seamlessly collect payments at a lower cost than other platforms.
*Payouts vary by country. 2-day for USA, 7-day for Canada, and varies for other countries.
Sport and Social Clubs fear the unreliable nature of pickup sports (i.e., no-shows). How does OpenSports mitigate these problems?
Whether you’re offering punch-card style passes, or monthly, annual, or seasonal memberships, watch your revenue grow!
We are so fortunate to grow with Sport and Social Clubs by listening to their feedback everyday, and building what they want. Not only does your feedback influence our product decisions, we also provide first class support around the clock, and organizers praise us for it.
We are a group of badminton players who were struggling to manage a rapidly growing club since we were using a popular but generic social meeting app which couldn’t provide us with sports-specific features. Since switching over to OpenSports, management has become so easy, members are happy with the fairness and automation that’s built in, and collecting payments has become a breeze. Kudos to the team for creating a very well thought out app and being so responsive and considerate with our feedback! Looking forward to all the awesome new features lined up for this year! — Sports Club group manager in Pittsburgh, PA
There have been many sports related applications designed to bring people together, but OpenSports is one of the few that actually nails the execution and that is largely attributed to the feedback that the development team takes from its users. I have submitted several usability requests in the past which have actually been added. This is not something I can say for any other app I’ve used, sports or not. Highly recommended! — Andrew H, Philadelphia
