Prestbury Phantoms Youth Football Club are based in Gloucestershire. In 2023, the club embarked on a new venture by organising their first-ever youth football tournament. The tournament was designed for teams in the under 9 and under 10 age categories, making it a special occasion for young footballers in the region. However, to ensure a smooth and efficient tournament, the club needed a reliable tournament management system. After conducting extensive online research, they discovered Tournament Organiser, a platform known for its user-friendly and adaptable features.
Statement by Prestbury Phantoms Youth Football Club:
“2023 was our club’s first year of organising a youth football tournament, and I found the Tournament Management System after an online search to look at the various options out there on the market.
Colin arranged a Zoom call to demonstrate the system, and this was very reassuring to see the website in action before committing to using it.
During the setup phase before the tournament began, Colin could not have been more helpful. He designed the website according to our tournament’s personal requirements, and included absolutely all the additional information I asked to go on there, e.g., biographies of participating teams, event information, and emergency information. Nothing was too much trouble.
Colin’s particular selling point to me before the event was the personal touch that he would bring to supporting our day, and in that sense, he delivered many times over. During the event, we encountered a couple of minor hitches, and within 5 minutes of me emailing him to request assistance, Colin had responded promptly and provided effective solutions. This level of responsiveness and support was fantastic to see and is a key reason why I would undoubtedly choose this system again for any future events.
In addition, from a public-facing point of view, the website was universally well received. The rapid, real-time results and league tables were greatly appreciated by visitors to our event, and I received fantastic feedback about the website after the event from the managers who had attended.
For a simple, one-line summary though: I would absolutely recommend the Tournament Management System. The price is very reasonable for the service provided, and I will 100% definitely not be looking anywhere else for any future events I put on!”
