There’s a “free soccer billing software” scam being used by almost all the top players in the sports billing software industry today but this scam is 100% legal. Whether it’s ethical is a different story but there’s a lot of gray area to be debated.
The truly shocking aspect of this sports industry billing scam isn’t that it exists… after all, it’s 100% legal… the shocking part is that this type of billing scheme was uncovered and all but eliminated 17-years ago in the e-commerce world.
Used and promoted widely in the early 2000’s, it was quickly replaced by a more cost efficient model and once this other model was in place, nobody was willing to go back to the “loan shark” rates charged by the “old school” e-commerce billing systems.
But just as “get rich quick” schemes seem to reappear in different venues, from the back pages of magazines to the high-tech venue of the internet, and then back to direct mail… this insane billing scam has reappeared in the sports industry without anyone really noticing.
I suppose it’s not that surprising since soccer coaches are not known to be e-commerce experts and e-commerce experts are typically not running sports businesses. I’ll admit that I had no idea this even existed any longer and was shocked to discover the scheme still lived in the far corners of the sports industry.
Worst of all… there are still many that actually like this billing model, even when they’re paying exorbitant fees, for a commodity service.
Many believe that since these fees are added onto the “back-end” of the transaction, that their customers (i.e. sports parents) do not even notice that they are being charged above and beyond what they agreed to pay.
Nothing could be further from the truth. They all “notice” but they do not blame the billing software for the extra fees, they blame the soccer club because that’s show they think they’re paying.
The end result is that the soccer club receives the “hate” for the fees but the billing software receives the money… not a good deal for the soccer club!
But there is a better way if you can spare 9-minutes!
Soccer clubs can easily follow the exact same model that all the online e-commerce businesses follow. Investing 9 minutes of work -1 time – into setting up their billing system will allow them to dramatically reduce those fees and keep that money for the club versus giving it to another company.

Time is the one commodity you can never create more of in your life. We all have the same clock ticking and the limitations that come with this valuable commodity.
The only way to get “more time” is to leverage automation or the help (time) of others.
There are video systems that will help you “automate” your game video but only if you’re trying to track simple things like time of possession or goals.
The problem with this approach is that it completely ignores the reality about why these things happened. They tell you the “what” happened but never the “why” it happened.
Why was your time of possession so good? Why did you score? Why did you give up the goal?
Everyone knows what the final score of the game but this “what” information is never going to help increase your team’s soccer IQ or show you ways to improve to win the next game.
The most important thing to know is the “why” for the “what”. If all you have is the “what”, you really do not have much at all.
This is where your experience as a quality soccer coach comes into play because you get to add the “why” into the game analysis and make your players and your team much smarter. Not just “what” happened but “why” it happened.
Ah yes… back to that pesky issue of not enough time to do the game analysis to help your team withe the “why”.
