Sports club automation company Clubforce has completed its purchase of Comórtais, a competition management technology firm.
Clubforce, which provides an all-in-one management platform for sports volunteers, is now adding competition management to its technology offering.
The Comórtais software is used by some of the country's biggest football clubs and leagues.
The software allows associations to create their own league and cup competitions and teams are provided with detailed match analysis and can add information like goal scorers, venues, referees and directions, all from fixtures generated by the league administrators.
Comórtais' customers include Sligo Rovers, KDUL, the Floodlit Soccer League, AUL Dublin, Basketball Ireland Area Boards, United Churches League, Cork Schoolboys League, Wexford Schoolboys League and Dublin District Schoolboys League (DDSL), the largest league of its kind in Europe.
The competition management software can be used for an array of sports.
The chief executive of Clubforce, Noel Murray, said that adding competition management to its portfolio of products will bring a more complete offering to its customers and will allow it to enter a new market with the leagues.
"The Comórtais focus has traditionally been on football but we plan to rapidly evolve and serve other sports. The technology features we gain from this deal will make us more competitive in Ireland, the UK, and further afield," he added.
Comórtais founder Feidhlim Byrne said it was gratifying to receive the opportunity to scale the product beyond his means and deliver additional value to its customers.
"I look forward to working alongside Clubforce and seeing the technology evolve to become a game-changer for clubs and leagues both at home and internationally," he added. Mr Byrne will remain as a consultant and advisor to Clubforce after the deal is complete.
