The agreement between Joymo and one of England’s largest County FA’s will commence in August with Nottinghamshire FA aiming to livestream of all four of their County Cup competitions across senior men’s and women’s football during the 2021/22 season.
It includes the Saturday Senior Cup, Saturday Senior Trophy, Sunday Senior Cup, Women’s County Cup.
It means clubs such as Newark FC, Newark Town, Southwell City, Bingham Town and Ollerton Town could be selected for live matches.
Newark Town Ladies and Ollerton Town Ladies could also feature on the app.
Joymo said it would work closely with Nottinghamshire FA to realise the organisation’s direct-to-fan streaming ambitions and help promote the greater accessibility that live streaming delivers.
Nottinghamshire FA will record their games and use the Joymo Share app to stream directly to fans via the Joymo Arena streaming portal.
Fans will be able to watch matches live or on demand.
Elaine Oram, chief executive officer of Nottinghamshire FA, said: “This is fantastic news for all stakeholders in the Nottinghamshire football community.
“Nottinghamshire FA is all about driving participation and delivering a great football experience and this partnership will increase access and engage more members of the County-wide football family than ever before.
“Streaming our most prestigious competitions enables us to reach a wider number of grassroots football fans that can’t always attend matches in person, giving them the flexibility to watch live or on demand across multiple devices.
“Live streaming also provides huge value to players, coaches and fans and will help to increase engagement levels with teams and our organisation as we aim to deliver football for all.
“The partnership will also help us generate additional revenues — crucial for all not-for-profit organisations — that can be reinvested into the grassroots game.
“Safeguarding, secure data management and GDPR compliance is at the heart of Joymo’s high quality and easy-to-use service and we will be encouraging and supporting clubs and teams across the County to get set-up on the Joymo platform so they too can enjoy the benefits of live streaming.”
Mike Emery, CEO of Joymo, said: “We are delighted to welcome Nottinghamshire FA to the Joymo platform in what is another significant partnership for our business and one that will resonate across the grassroots football community. Nottinghamshire FA has shown a real commitment to its clubs and their supporters by broadcasting their biggest competitions and making them available for all — we are thrilled to be powering their content.
“Additionally, we know that The FA, and it’s County FA’s, put the utmost importance on safeguarding all football participants, so this partnership is fantastic validation for the strength and security of the Joymo platform."
