The AFL has announced that it will transition Community Football to its new registration and competition management platform, PlayHQ, for season 2022 and beyond.
This follows the successful launch of PlayHQ for NAB AFL Auskick and AFL9s in season 2021. The transition from its current platform ( GameDay, formerly SportsTG / FootyWeb ) to PlayHQ was driven by its desire to provide its Leagues, Clubs, participants, administrators, and hardworking volunteers with a more advanced and user-friendly platform.
The transition aims to significantly reduce the administrative burden on hardworking volunteers and administrators with easy-to-use, intuitive, mobile-friendly technology.
From GameDay to PlayHQ
The AFL's decision to switch from Gameday to PlayHQ marks a significant change for community football.
While Gameday has been the primary platform for several years, PlayHQ offers several notable advantages allowing users to stay connected and engaged with their sports teams no matter where they are.
