Whatever your role, you benefit

Find out the benefits of the Matchday payment service

Anyone responsible for club finances—including club secretaries, treasures and/or chairpersons—will benefit from the new Matchday payments service.

Club administrators – here’s how it will make your lives easier:

  • Payment tracking: Instantly see exactly who’s paid and who hasn’t;
  • Cashflow: Money enters your account on matchdays – no more late fees to collect;
  • Financial data: Track and trace payment history by team and/or player;
  • Time-saving: No more chasing match fees or club fees;
  • Free up key people: Less legwork for team managers – and gives them the tools they need to stay on top of their team’s finances.


Team Managers/Coaches – there are two key benefits:

  • Easy player tracking: See which players owe money and how much;
  • No more collecting cash: No more excuses from players who have forgotten cash.


Adult Players & parents of youth players – it will now be much easier to make payments:

  • Cash-free: No need to carry cash to pay match fees or club fees;
  • Payment on tap: An easy, convenient way to pay on your phone in just a few taps;
  • Personal tracking: Keep track of payments per match – and only pay what’s owed.
