Information Technology

in Sports

The role of information technology in sports is to provide participants, spectators, and event organisers with the real-time information they need.

We live in an increasingly connected world. People expect technology to enhance their sporting lives. Social Media has enhanced fans’ expectations regarding the frequency and interactivity of engagement.

This presents an opportunity for sporting events of all sizes to capitalise on this growing trend, through the implementation of IT into the very fibre of an event, with the aim of driving engagement between spectators, participators, sponsors, venues, and organisers, all of which positively contribute to the growth and sustainabiity of the event.


Communication is a key need and urge of all people. Informaton Technology plays a key role making this possible at the touch of a button or swipe of a screen.


People want to participate in events. From the player on the field to the armchair critic at home. IT gives everyone the platform to participate in their own space and level.


Media, supporters, relatives, scouts, coaches, and opponents are looking for as much information of your event and they want it now! IT supplies the perfect tools satisfy their hunger.

It is vital for sporting events of all sizes to stay abreast with the expectations of their online audience by providing real-time commentary, fixtures, results, images etc. on popular social media platforms, especially if the event is not being broadcast or streaming live.

Incorporating IT into your sporting event also enables you to simplify and better manage necessary processes such as:

  • online registration
  • online ticketing & payment facilities
  • sharing & updating event fixtures and results
  • electronic scoreboards and substitution boards
  • overall event data capturing
