SportMember – Mobile team app - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

After endless problems with players and friends not signing up for matches and training, I decided, in 2004, that he would make life easier for coaches and players. I wanted to make a digital platform to communicate between coaches and players so that they could save time on the frustrating coordination, and instead spend more time on the field. This is how SportMember started.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Understanding what functions the user needs the most, and then the continuous iterations and updates needed to stay relevant and keep up user needs, but also with IOS and Android phone developments.

The interviewee, Mr. Frank Bjergø, is the CEO and Founder of SportMember - a user-friendly platform and app that tries to make it more fun to be a part of a team/club. SportMember aspires to help its users to save many hours on administrative work so that they can enjoy what's important - more time for sport!


Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Waze: Great way to use user feedback to help plan and organise my daily commute, with real-time feedback and user-generated warnings.

WhatsApp Business: A great way to stay in contact with customers, provide support, answer quick questions, and make it quick and easy, and more personal.

How long have you been working on this app?

In various iterations for the last 10 years.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

To provide sport clubs and their members with a user-friendly way to interact with the club's activities, stay informed with club news, pay membership, and generally make it easier to be part of a modern and digitally forward-thinking club.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

The SportMember app brings everything related to the club and/or sport that you love to your fingertips. It integrates everything needed for club admins and members to interact, and to stay updated with their teammates and friends. We help clubs and their members effortlessly stay abreast of club news, activities, and memberships. The club can easily create events and activities, members share availability with one click, chat, pay their club fees all in one place, and generally have less organising to think about during their otherwise busy schedules.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

A general update of the design of the app is ongoing. New profile features, to have a better overview of club members. New membership categories are being developed to be able to categorise members into e.g. students, over the 60s, juniors, family, etc. while still maintaining their team and group affiliation in the app. A new in-app/platform dashboard to give users and admins a better overview of the club.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Please encourage your club managers to use the app for the whole club. get in contact so we can do a no-obligation demo of the system based on your club's needs. Just go to the website's front page, and book from there: or .com. And also leave us a review in the app store - we'd really love to hear from you.
