Clubfunders and PokitPal team up to reduce the costs of sport

Sports club memberships in Australia will become cheaper and more affordable following a partnership between sports payment technology company, Clubfunders, and cashback shopping platform, PokitPal.

The innovative and unique partnership is a Cash Back Membership Payment solution and represents a win-win opportunity where fans are financially empowered, and clubs receive continuous monetary support.

Under the agreement, cashback from PokitPal’s merchant partners will be automatically and seamlessly linked to their nominated club to reduce the upfront cost of a club membership and daily expenses.

Blake Lawrence, CEO of Gold Coast-based Clubfunders, said the partnership with PokitPal will ease financial pressures on families, fans, and members while bolstering support for their favourite sports club.

Concerningly, Lawrence highlighted up to 80 percent of sports clubs forecast ongoing reductions in core revenue streams such as memberships, local sponsorships, and community fundraising.

“In these challenging economic times with high interest rates and high inflation, consumers are cutting back on non-essential expenses, leading to a decline in professional sports club memberships,” said Lawrence.

“However, the Clubfunders-Pokitpal partnership offers much-needed relief from the ever-increasing costs of living. It enables parents and club members to save significantly when conducting regular shopping activities and allows them to continue to support their club.

“For example, if a merchant offers 5% cash back on a $200 purchase, that $10 will come off club membership and the benefits that it provides.”

Gary Cobain, CEO of PokitPal, added: “We are delighted to work with Clubfunders, and for PokitPal to play a part in making sport more affordable for young Australians. Together, PokitPal and Clubfunders look forward to empowering individuals and clubs alike, fostering a future of seamless transactions and convenience.”
