We know that Ice Hockey fans and participants are some of the most passionate and engaged sporting followers, and we are very excited to be rolling out our Membership & Competition Management software across the sport. 

“With some sport-specific features, such as Ice Hockey team/scoresheets, already having been developed as part of the project and our commitment to the sport, we are looking forward to expanding this partnership in the coming years and growing our presence and support of Ice Hockey as a whole across the country and region.”

Barrie Archer, EIHA chair, said: ​​​“We are delighted to be working with Gameday on this new and exciting venture that will allow the efficient and effective management of the sport.
