University of Birmingham Sport

Campus League

The Scenario

A system which Birmingham could use for all sports involved in their campus league and allow them to report on participants, teams and fixtures information easily.

With over 2500 students and staff competing in regular, friendly leagues and one-off tournaments throughout the academic year University of Birmingham Campus Leagues were looking for a digital platform that everyone could engage with.

The ability to manage all sports on one digital platform making it simple for students and staff to find their sport and manage those who compete across multiple sports.

How we helped

Reduce the time it takes to administer the leagues, Playwaze has lots of useful features which include auto-fixture generation, progression to knockouts and promotion/relegation which can all be done automatically on the completion of leagues.

An aligned way of taking team entries to all the individual leagues that run, student can enter their team to the league they want to participate in.

With the Playwaze reporting feature Birmingham can track information about all fixtures, teams and participants in one place making end of year reports much simpler to collate.

Communication between organisers and teams has been made much simpler with being able to communicate with ‘groups’ of people throughout the system, either using news posts or direct messaging.
