The challenge of funding sports clubs also extends to the semi-professional and smaller professional clubs. In fact, it is not until reaching the rarefied heights of professional sport where one finds clubs with true financial stability. Even at that level, financial strength and stability is normally only found at those who are heavily sponsored or invested in “ultra-clubs”, if you will, such as Manchester City.
In 2013, MyClubBetting.com Limited (MCB) was established to provide grassroots sports clubs with an opportunity to raise funds through a novel route. Subscribing clubs were provided with their own customised betting and gaming site, which featured their club’s branding and social media feed. MCB worked with the clubs to promote this service to their members and supporters, then shared the resulting profits with them. In January 2016, a second version of the betting product was launched. In this version clubs were able to create their own betting sites by simply putting their name, logo, colours and social media links into a Club Management System.
MCB has now evolved from this initial offering to developing the technology further to form a club ‘portal’. This means that instead of the club creating its own betting site it will now use that same technology to make its own portal. This offering is now referred to as My Club. The portals have an increasing number of products attached to them which clubs and club members can access. The betting product remains a very important cornerstone product, but this service is now provided by 21 Bet providing a major upgrade to include casino and virtual sports. My Club now offers a sports kit and equipment shop, an energy comparison service,a funding offer, rail travel offers and My Club will soon be adding a sports insurance product and international property offering. Many other services that have been either sourced or My Club has been contacted about will be added. My Club anticipates that there will be around forty such offers by the end of 2018 – all available through the portal.
The clubs share the profits or commissions generated by their members or the club itself, usually benefitting by 20% of the funds received by My Club.
