Nebraska State Soccer Selects Affinity Sports as New Technology Partner

Nebraska State Soccer Association (Nebraska State Soccer) announced that it has entered into a 5 year exclusive technology license, services and support agreement with Affinity Sports, LLC (Affinity) to provide its market leading software platform, operational services and technology and customer support to Nebraska State Soccer, its 70+ member clubs and over 25,000 youth and adult soccer players, 3,000+ coaches, referees, volunteers and administrators throughout the state of Nebraska. 

“We have been working with Affinity for over a year to make sure we would be upgrading our software registration platform for our member clubs. We feel it will be a user friendly platform for both the clubs and their members. There be no cost to our members clubs for the basic registration platform and any clubs using online registration will save money, especially on credit card processing fees. Affinity Sports will replace LeagueOne by May of 2016, but clubs will have the opportunity to sign on right away for the fall of 2015. We are very excited about the move,” said Jeff Hulbert, of Nebraska State Soccer.

Any club interested in moving to the new platform for the fall of 2015, or if you have questions regarding the new platform, you may contact Molly Vaughan, Accounting and Registration Administrator at admin@nebraskastatesoccer.org. Molly will be reaching out to member clubs in the coming weeks.  You may also receive correspondence from Affinity directly. At the bottom of this release is the pricing for clubs to review.

Affinity’s fully integrated software as a service ShareView™ technology platform and support services allow its sports association clients to manage all core association operations including managing all player, volunteer and administrator records, oversight and approval of player eligibility and return to play procedures, risk management, background checks and volunteer eligibility as well as creating and managing all sanctioned all state tournaments including Nebraska State Soccer’s annual State Cup.  

A number of Nebraska State Soccer’s largest affiliate member clubs have already committed to use Affinity’s online player registration and payment processing services to save money on credit card processing and to significantly reduce the burden on their accounting and registrar staff by having access to real time reporting of all registered players and teams with far less record duplication, manual updates and inaccurate player and family contact information typically involved with paper forms or with manually uploading registered players and data into Nebraska State Soccer’s ShareView database. 

“After evaluating the top tier vendors, we were very impressed with Affinity’s ShareView™ platform. Their market leading customer support, the ability to utilize Affinity’s API to get access to a number of exciting new products, and services from Affinity’s Affiliate Partners represented the clear choice as Nebraska State Soccer’s technology and services partner both today and into the future,” said Jon Eilers, President, Nebraska State Soccer.  

Through its our recently released ShareView API, Affinity is allowing a number of ShareView Affiliate Partners to offer our sports association clients and their member clubs, players and parents seamless, integrated access to “best in class” products and services.  The ShareView Affiliate Partners will have significantly reduced cost of sales and will be able to offer discounts to Nebraska State Soccer’s member clubs.  Our first ShareView Affiliate Partner, League Dynamics, offers clubs and leagues a number of effective productivity tools, including campaign management to increase player counts and ensure maximum player and volunteer retention, practice and game scheduling and volunteer management.  Over the next month, Affinity will be announcing several new Affiliate Partners that will offer insurance products, risk management and enhanced player content.  In addition, Affinity’s API and campaign management services will enable Nebraska State Soccer to increase sponsor engagement and revenue. 

 “We are delighted to be selected to be Nebraska State Soccer’s “Official Technology Partner.”  We believe that our integrated ShareView™ technology platform significantly reduces the administrative burden on staff and empowers our sports association clients to provide the highest level of member service to their affiliate clubs, players, parents and volunteers to enhance each player’s on field experience while growing player and volunteer counts”, said Mark Skeen, Affinity’s, CEO. 

 

Club & League Registration Service: Affinity will offer the following economics to any Association club or league that elects to use Affinity’s registration services.  Affinity will use its merchant account to collect the transaction payments, pay all processing fees and remit net funds to the Association weekly.  If a club of league wants to use its own merchant account, then Affinity will charge a $2.50 registrations fee for each registered player.
