Monmouth RFC and Spond Club: A Digital Revolution in Club Management


Monmouth RFC Transforms Club Operations and Enhances Member Experience

Stepping into the digital age, many sports clubs are looking for innovative ways to streamline their administrative burden. One example of a club that has done this successfully is the Monmouth Rugby Football Club (Monmouth RFC). This historic club, a feeder for the Newport Gwent Dragons, currently playing in the Welsh Rugby Union Division One East, has made an exciting leap into the future by adopting  the Spond Club management solution.

Over the past two seasons, Monmouth RFC has deployed Spond Club for the management of membership fees, subs, and kit payments, an innovation that’s drastically cut administrative time. With its user-friendly payment interface and adaptable features, the platform enables the club to set tailored payment levels for different member categories, making financial management a doddle.

Payments in Spond Club are simple

Stuart Paterson, Chairman of Monmouth RFC, offered his thoughts on the club’s experience with Spond: “Our shift to Spond Club has transformed our admin. We’re saving a substantial amount of time – 12.5 hours weekly to be exact – owing to the platform’s straightforward and efficient features. It effectively caters to our varied needs, especially payments, from managing membership fees and kit payments to organising different payment levels for different member types. Everything we need is all in one place, and it’s incredibly intuitive.”

An added boon for Monmouth RFC is the simplicity of paying for personalised kits directly through the Spond app. This bespoke feature in Spond Club offers members a seamless, fuss-free experience, further amplifying the club’s overall efficiency.

The success of Monmouth RFC’s adoption of Spond Club demonstrates the platform’s ability to streamline grassroots club management, enhance operational efficiency, and liberate significant time for volunteers. It allows the club to concentrate on nurturing a love for rugby among its members— a true reflection of Spond Club’s mission.

Track and trace payments in Spond Club

Stuart added: “Spond Club affords a holistic overview of the club, whilst still giving individual admins the necessary control over their teams and groups – an invaluable function. Given the tight financial conditions that clubs like ours often operate under, the ability to track and chase member payments at a group level becomes crucial. Spond Club offers easy-to-use features to filter and report on payment status by groups.”

The platform is not only secure, it also promotes quick payment due to its clean and user-friendly interface, leading to faster inflow of funds. Spond Club enables clubs like Monmouth RFC to feel more organised and in command of everything, epitomising the digital revolution in club management.
