Venue exposure and online booking technology
The UK’s Leading Booking Partner for Sports Venues
What we help to solve
The process of finding and booking sports facilities can be time consuming and frustrating for players. Sports players and teams do not have easy access to relevant, up to date information to make an informed decision when booking the sports facilities. Slow responses and unanswered enquiries often results in booking abandonment, less sport played and under utilised sports facilities.
Conversely, sports venues often do not have the resources to implement secure technology or conduct extensive digital marketing campaigns to reach new players. The sports industry hasn’t kept up with other on-demand economies (accommodation, travel, dining, retail) meaning that the public aren’t aware of how quickly and easy it can be to get involved in sport, nor do they know exactly what facilities are nearby.
How we solve it
MyLocalPitch is easlily integrated into leisure operators, local authorities, schools and community organisations providing an efficient way to promote sports facilities to a wider audience and boost physical activity.
MyLocalPitch also offers a full bookings management and marketing service on behalf of sports venues, providing a professional, cost-effective way to streamline the management of sports bookings, whilst increasing revenues.
