Tournament Websites

Promote your tournament online with an easy-to-build website that works great on smartphones

Within an hour or less, you can have a fully functional tournament website up-and-running ... no programming or web design experience is needed. It all starts with our single-page event website layout wizard, where you can easily add, customize and drag-and-drop panels into place. And you can use a custom URL or domain name as well as choose from a variety of colors and fonts.

Quickly drop in text, image or gallery panels to add color and personality to your site. Add videos that you have posted to YouTube or Vimeo. Include maps and addresses to your tournament location(s) as well as your tournament schedule. You can even add social sharing tools so your participants can easily share and post about your tournament on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Online Registration

Collect details and payments from attendees and manage it all in one convenient place

Our system walks you step-by-step through setting up your sport or golf tournament registration forms so you don't miss a thing. Create multiple ticket and pricing options plus multiple time-sensitive offers per ticket (early bird, last minute, etc.). Manage add-on sales for tournament apparel and spiffs. Enable group/team sales. Collect custom information for each participant. Post your tournament's policies and terms. And much more.

Our registration setup process integrates seamlessly into the tournament registration website, but you can also post the tournament registration form on another external site. Once your participants register, you can manage them with ease and view comprehensive registration and sales reports. And when your event day arrives, just use our convenient guest check-in tool to check in participants (and even sell at-the-door registrations).
