MyLocalPitch (MLP) is a search and booking portal for anyone who plays grassroots sport. The company launched in January 2014 and operates in London and Dublin with plans to expand into Birmingham and Manchester later this year.
There are two key parts to the MLP service; a Business 2 Business provider of booking software and marketing services for pitch and league owners, and a Business 2 Consumer platform to increase users’ ability to locate, book and play sport.
MyLocalPitch’s platform allows users to streamline the search and booking process, which in turn boosts participation and encourages active lifestyles. In November 2015, the MLP iOS app launched which allows people to search and book sports venues on the move – version 2.0 is soon to be released for Android.
Sports venues benefit from free booking software and marketing services as well as providing a web and mobile platform for players to search and book pitches. MLS now works with 115 venues in London and Dublin, taking bookings for over 450 sports facilities.
Searching and booking sports venues used to be slow and fragmented. The aggregation and booking technology exists and is widely used in the hotel, house-rental, airline and restaurant industries. Yet there is extremely limited use of this technology in the grassroots sports industry, until now. MyLocalPitch.com
