Free soccer billing app… or free sports billing app… it really doesn’t matter because they both end up robbing your soccer club of valuable funds without you even knowing it’s happening.
Let’s back up a minute and I just want you to think about what you could do with and extra $2,000, $5,000 or even and extra $12,000 without having to do an extra minute of work. Quite literally, you can save this amount of money with 10 minutes of effort 1 time and then never do anything more… not ever.
The weird part of this story is that I had no idea this soccer billing practice even existed because it was basically banished from the e-commerce world 18 years ago. Discovering that this archaic soccer billing practice existed, much less thrived, was a massive surprise to me.
My goal is to educate as many people as possible so I can help you keep that money in your club so you can afford to buy new equipment, provide more scholarships or just make sure your club can stay afloat through these tough times.
Let me explain the sleazy part of soccer registration billing and then provide you with the simple solution.
When you use one of these “other” free soccer apps for billing, what they’re doing is drastically overcharging for the credit card processing fees and charging as much as 10X for transaction fees. These outrageous overcharges might seem like they’re getting passed off to the parents paying for their kids but in reality, the club could just as easily keep those fees to better fund the club.
Parents do not care if they’re paying a surcharge to you or to the billing company, they just know they are paying more, they’re bottom line costs have gone up.
So what’s the solution?
In SocrPro, our registration and billing system was set up based upon modern e-commerce practices so you get to add your own credit card processing account into our system. This is literally a “copy and paste” operation and we’ll help you to make it done correctly.
Once it’s set up, you’ll never need to touch it again!
From a user standpoint, they never see the back end systems and all they see is an order page with your name and logo. It works the same, or better, than the billing system you’re using today but with a massively lower cost to operate.
Yes… your operational cost of registration and billing will drop significantly because “free” is not really “free”!
This might seem complicated but I assure you that it is extremely simple and once you have this set up, you’ll never touch it again. There is nothing to maintain and nothing to service. Just “set it” and then “forget it”!

Plus, you’ll have all the other tools as a “bonus”. You’re going to save time, save money and win more games – I guarantee it!
This simple question can set off a firestorm of different opinions, and there are all types of soccer apps for many different niches, but in the end I think the answer is really simple.
There are video streaming soccer apps for watching Premiere League and MLS games. These fall into the classification of “passive” soccer apps because you’re not really doing anything “functional” with them. They’re simply “feeding” you information but you’re not really an active participant in the interaction.
On the flip side of the coin are the soccer apps where you are an active participant in the interaction and you actively contribute as part of the usage of the app.
For the purposes of this discussion, we’ll be answering the question of “what makes a great soccer app” in the context of a “functional app” because watching games is going to be the same no matter what soccer app you choose to stream the video to your computer or phone.
The simple answer is a “great soccer app is an app that’s all about soccer.”
But what does this really mean?
To begin with, a soccer app should be built specifically for soccer instead of a generic app built for 100s of sports and other random activities (think apps like TeamSnap for example).
Secondly, a great soccer app should handle all of the things a soccer team /club needs to run efficiently. It should save time for soccer club administration and save money for the club.
Thirdly, a great soccer app should help coaches save time so they can spend more time on the pitch and less time in front of their computers.
Lastly, a great soccer app needs to help a soccer coach win more games. Winning is fun, winning keeps players interested in the sport and parents reward clubs that win with their money instead of “club hopping”.
Not that winning is the only thing that matters but shouldn’t a great soccer app help you win “more”? After all, nobody puts in the effort to practice hard to lose.
So what soccer app actually does all this?
SocrPro.com is the one and only soccer app that was built from the ground up specifically, and only, for soccer and because of this focus, is the only soccer app that can actually help a team / club save time, save money and help it win more games.
Let’s start from the winning perspective and work our way back to the saving time issue.
It’s a proven fact that coaching video not only helps the players gain soccer IQ, it actually helps soccer coaches become better coaches as new insights regularly present themselves. When you step back and see the whole field, in slow motion, frame by frame, or back and forth, suddenly things you never notice in the excitement of the live game become obvious.
Since I’ve never met a soccer coach that had “too much time” on their hands, it’s important to see how the Scheduling System, Session Planner, and Player Evaluation System will save a massive number of hours for coaches.
Some clubs are large enough to have dedicated admin staff but no club is large enough that even with these helping hands, the coaches are not still actively involved when it’s time for travel, tournaments, and showcase events. Even ensuring the committed players actually make it through the registration process will usually fall onto the coach’s shoulders.
Having an automated registration system reduces time commitments and complexity from the start of the onboarding process and makes it monumentally easier to collect payments… especially if your club is not a “rich” club and needs to offer payment plans to ease the burden on the player’s parents.
In summary, what makes a great soccer app is an app built for soccer and an app that saves time, saves money and helps win more games.
The #1 soccer app, and the only app, that actually does all of this for soccer is SocrPro.com.
Built for soccer and only soccer. You will see and “feel” the obvious difference the 1st time you log in to SocrPro as a soccer coach, admin, player and even parents.
