How Spond Works

The world's leading sports team management platform takes the hard work out of teamwork, so you don't have to.

Like all great technical solutions, Spond sports team management platform is complex under the hood, yet simple to set up and operate. Our global team has worked for almost 10 years - not to mention the millions invested - to create a solution that saves the average group admin around 2.5 hours per week, and even more if you manage multiple teams or groups.

How Spond Works

Spond works by bringing together every aspect of running a grassroots club or group and combining them seamlessly into one platform. From fixtures to finance and fundraising, we've got it covered.

Spond offers two fully integrated solutions.

The Spond Team Management Solution - Spond App

A simple app that can also be accessed on desktop via a dedicated admin interface, our team management solution offers everything you need to manage a grassroots team or group. Organise, engage, request payments and fundraise on a single platform.

The Spond Club Management Solution - Spond Club

As you grow, our Spond Club interface is designed to help you make the move to managing multiple teams or groups, giving you complete oversight of coaching, payments, events, messaging and fundraising for all your groups, or selected ones.

You can sign up for Spond Club here.

Seamless Integration

The beauty of the Spond platform is that most users and all non-admins will have no idea that you are using Spond Club. Although you will have complete oversight of all activities in each team or group, including admins, members, events, payments and messaging, Spond App users will notice no difference all in their day-to-day use of the app.

Free at the point of use

Both the Spond App and Spond Club are completely free to download and use. Spond only charges for transactions processed via the app using our secure payments portal, and also for fundraising campaigns. And unlike many of our competitors, there are no limits on the number of groups and teams, or the number of user, you can add and organise.

A Fully Integrated Team Management Platform

Spond features can be broken down into three key areas:


  • Send invitations and reminders for matches and other events

  • Send messages to all users or specific groups, such as everyone in a particular team role, or age group

  • Send out task requests and ask people to volunteer - ie. Lifts to an away game or someone to prepare post-match snacks

  • Post and allow users to interact in the app, providing a safe and trackable environment for member interactions

  • Create fundraisers for your club or group, nominate members to sell entries and engage with supporters, all in the app

  • Run a poll in the app to find out what your members think on anything from the best date for a match to the design of your new kit


  • Manage members - add or remove users for your groups

  • Request payments for match fees, membership dues or anything else and process them directly in the app

  • Send out membership renewal requests and monitor responses

  • Securely store files relating to your groups, members and events


  • Set up your entire season in minutes with our simple upload feature

  • Set up and manage events, monitor responses and message attendees

  • Request availability for a particular day or timeslot - Ideal when you have multiple teams to pick

  • Set up courses and academies in Spond Club, monitor responses, process payments and offer optional add-ons to attendees


From first signup to effectively using specific features and setting up Spond Club, the Spond team are here to support you every step of the way and help you make the most of what Spond has to offer.

The Spond Help Center is an amazing resource where you'll find everything you need to make the most of the Spond platform. Simply press the icon in the bottom right corner of the Spond app to access our smart support center, where you can search for help on anything from signing up to setting up a fixture or payment request.

And in the unlikely event that our Help Center doesn't contain the information you need, we have actual humans available to lend a hand on chat support.

Data Storage and Security

Spond stores all club, group and personal data securely and in line with all national and international legislation in markets where we operate, including GDPR. We are guided in this according to four key principles:

  1. We make privacy assessments prior to and during development of new features and services

  2. We document our assessments and considerations

  3. We are transparent about how we process personal data

  4. We focus on competence and awareness within the organisation through training
