The Challenge – life before TeamFeePay
The growth of Pro Touch Soccer Academy has been rapid and with that challenges started to arise in the day to day management of the club’s administration. With over 15 teams to manage and players’ subs to collect, admin quickly became very time-consuming.
Pro Touch was largely using offline administration methods, like many other grassroots football clubs.
Ash Rahman, Co-Founder at Pro Touch SA explains:
“Everything was still being recorded by pen and paper, and the TeamFeePay football club management system has now given us far more control over what we do. We have seen immediate improvement to some of the most mundane tasks.”
The Solution – an easier way with TeamFeePay!
Finding a club management software solution was a key driver to the success and growth of Pro Touch. In 2021, their search for a software solution brought them to TeamFeePay; and the fact that the system was designed and built by FA Licensed coaches meant they understood the pain points most football clubs face and had built a software solution to solve these.
TeamFeePay’s football club management software ensures that football clubs can easily collect payments and subs. The easy-to-use system allows club Admins, Treasurers and Secretaries to manage payments for the whole football season. Money is collected automatically which means no more late subs or missed payments!
TeamFeePay – designed by football coaches for football clubs
The TeamFeePay system was designed by football coaches to make life easier for football clubs. Its quick and easy football club registrations process enables members to self-register online without the need for club officials’ to hand out and collect manual registration forms.

The system not only helps to keep information up-to-date and secures it safely but it also helps GDPR compliance.
