Year in Focus: 2022




It is almost time for 2022 to draw to a close. 


Before then, we would like to reflect on some of the exciting announcements and partnerships which have helped the growth of GameDay over the last 12 months. 


January


At the beginning of the year we launched our GameDay Marketplace Spotlight series, which shone a spotlight on some of the organisations and products that form part of our GameDay Marketplace. 


POLi Internet Banking were one of the first organisations to be highlighted, with GameDay working alongside POLi to make online payments quick and easy. 


February





In February we announced that GameDay had undertaken an exciting project to redefine the website templates offered to our valued customers.


This project resulted in major improvements to our website offering, with improved front-end design and new features, along with enhanced build, security and faster deployment processes to ensure a quicker turnaround for customers setting up their new website with GameDay.

March


March saw GameDay partner with Tenpin Bowling Australia, enabling us to support the registration process for their national junior programme, Bowl Patrol. 


The connection between ourselves and Tenpin Bowling Australia originated thanks to our existing partnership with the International Bowling Federation (IBF), who utilise GameDay's registration functionality for their international events.

April





In April, Gameday worked closely with Perth Wildcats to integrate the Wildcats’ member data, powered by our Fan Membership platform, with their new app.


Using an API integration from GameDay’s membership platform to the new Perth Wildcats mobile app, the project aimed to give the team's members an intuitive and seamless matchday experience using a mobile membership pass to quickly and easily scan into matches.

May


GameDay revealed an exciting new partnership with IronUp Sports in New Zealand during the month of May.  


Through our work with IronUp, we were able to support the organisation with delivering a streamlined solution designed to make the lives of the kids, parents, and administrators easier.


Other news:



June





Following a rigorous and detailed review of requirements and other available platforms, GameDay extended its long-standing partnership with Athletics New Zealand, enabling us to roll out our next generation membership, registration, and event management platform.


We are proud to have been working together with Athletics NZ for close to a decade.


Other news:



July 


July saw us work alongside British rugby league side Featherstone Rovers on their brand-new online auction platform. 


The new partnership helped the club raise additional funds through the sale of signed match balls, shirts and a range of money-can’t-buy experiences.


Other news:



August





In August, GameDay joined forces with Stack Team App under the umbrella of Stack Sports, bringing our products closer together via a phased release plan to eventually provide a fully integrated product offering.


The overall plan is to ensure a seamless integration between GameDay & Stack Team App from early 2023, allowing for members, teams, fixtures & events to sync directly to a Stack Team App account which can be initiated via GameDay Marketplace for any organisations using either GameDay or Passport.


Other news:



September


September saw GameDay confirm integration plans with Mailchimp, the #1 email marketing and automation software globally.


Many GameDay customers utilise Mailchimp to communicate with their members, create and send newsletters and manage marketing-related opt-ins, and this integration provided a seamless flow of contacts from GameDay to an existing Mailchimp account.


Other news:



October





In partnership with the Rugby Football League, we were proud to support the Rugby League World Cup, who used GameDay for their competition and team sheet management.


Given the scale of the tournament, the RFL provided some support to the RLWC21, part of which included using their competition management platform, which is provided by GameDay. 

 

The RLWC21 managed squads, team selections, team sheet management, fixturing, match official allocation and results entry through the GameDay platform, which the RFL have been using since 2016.


Other news:



November


After many years of creating draws by slaving away on excel spreadsheets, taking registrations and payments manually or by email and word of mouth, NZ Tag Football Inc (NZTFI) unleashed the power of GameDay within their nationally-run tournaments.


In what is being described as a “Game Changer” for one of the fastest growing team sports in New Zealand, NZTFI rolled out their new technology at the International Tag Series (ITS) in Auckland.


Other news:



December





In December, we became the Official Technology Partner of England Futsal, launching a brand-new website and events platform for England Futsal, as the first stage of a wider digital partnership that will come to support all levels of the sport’s delivery and competitions.
