How to move your group from Facebook in 2 easy steps
With examples from other sports groups
Two easy steps to make the transition simple!
1.Create your first event! (We recommend you create at least one upcoming event before inviting members to your group, so that they can see that there is upcoming activity!)
2.Invite members to your OpenSports group by making announcements about your next few events on Facebook (and other platforms you’re using)
- Continue to post your events on Facebook, but attach the link to your OpenSports event so that players know that they MUST join through OpenSports!
- Give a clear indication that you will be using OpenSports as the exclusive platform to collect RSVPs and payment!
