What would your NGB do with another £50,000+ pa?

We have a fund-raising opportunity that would generate a regular monthly stream of income for NGB partners, which could easily earn £20,000 and potentially exceed £50,000 - annually.

For larger NGBs with the right commercial capabilities, a six-figure annual income is a reality. That’s £100,000+ a year. Year in, year out.

We are exploring partnership opportunities with NGBs from across the UK and Ireland and invite them to submit an expression of interest to partner with us.

"Where your existing business model is appropriate, but primarily reliant upon public sector investment, we will support you to identify and secure additional non-grant income."

What is Coacha?

Coacha is a web based App that enables sports clubs to streamline admin and comply with regulatory requirements. Our very easy to use yet powerful software helps proactive NGBs to support their members in these ways:

•    safeguarding children in sport by using technology
•    keeping club and members’ sensitive data safe
•    helping with May 2018’s compulsory GDPR compliance
•    providing tools to relieve a clubs increasingly burdensome administration
•    helping save (sometimes a lot of) money with member transaction fees

Personalising our product allows NGBs with the desire, but not necessarily the resource (time as well as money) to have software branded as their own for their members to use. Doing so quickly and painlessly, whilst generating regular additional income for themselves.

If any of these points do resonate with you, maybe we should have a conversation?


Supplement your existing funding

With only 60-70% of funding coming via UK Sport Even those NGBs that have substantial funding will still need to source additional forms of funding for their sport. Not all NGB expenditure will qualify for funding, so supplementary income is essential to cover the shortfall.

In their strategy, Sport England outline that:


And that:


It’s plausible that at least one or maybe even two back office staff could be funded by our fund-raising opportunity.



"We believe that, in the medium to long term, NGBs should be able to resource their back-office costs from their own revenue (e.g. membership and commercial income)."

What else is in it for you as an NGB?

Aside from a regular funding stream, partnering with Coacha gives NGBs the opportunity to provide useful additional benefits to their members. These include:

•   enforcing NSPCC CPSU safeguarding children in sport best practice by using technology
•   a suite of useful tools for members that solve real life sports club problems
•   reducing costs and keeping more money in their club and your sport.


We have a common interest here, in making your organisation more efficient and reducing your reliance on public investment.

How does the partnership work?

There are several options open to NGBs. The type of partnership that's right for you will depend on the amount of revenue you wish to generate, the amount of member clubs you have and their number of members.

There are many other factors too, and no two partnerships are the same. This really is a revolutionary and bespoke way of raising funding for your sport.



Contact us - what do you have to lose?

This proposition will help any NGB sourcing an additional, regular stream of non-grant or funding related income.

And at the same time help with safeguarding children.

And help them to help their sports clubs become compliant with next year's GDPR obligations

All we ask, is for a few details from you followed by 5-10 minutes on the phone. At the end of our call, you decide if we talk more or to leave it there.

Seriously, what do you have to lose?

About this article

This article has been written with NGBs recognised by Sport England in mind. Not all Sports Councils (UK Sport, sportscotland, Sport Wales and Sport Northern Ireland) have the same strategy. However, the topics discussed will still have a great deal of relevance to any governing body in the UK, whether recognised by a sports council or not.

There will be winners, and there will be losers with this strategy. At one end, funding for sports has and will continue to increase. At the other end, some sports will see decreasing funding or even have funding withdrawn altogether.

Irrespective of where your NGB sits on this continuum, you will be under increasing pressure to be as commercially minded as possible and generate your own independent funding.



Funding for all other NGBs

For NGBs that are not recognised by one of the Sports Councils, the pressures of self-generated funding will not be a new concept either. They are already all too familiar with how important fund raising is, and that any new opportunity to raise funding should be investigated.

This opportunity is open to all NGBs whether recognised or not. Please contact us for more information.

We have just started using Coacha this season and honestly it is one of the best decisions I have made this year! I used to spend hours on admin, chasing people for payments, taking cash & cheques to the bank and then checking to make sure the payments had actually gone into our account. Now I no longer have to write out invoices or handle cash and Coacha wil... l do the chasing for payments for me - which is amazing! Whenever I have any questions I get straight on the phone and their amazing team have either got the problem solved in seconds, or they get back to me as soon as they can with a solution. I cannot recommended this software and the support team enough. Thank you from one happy and less stressed Cheerleading coach!  read more

Before heading into our second season as a club and doubling in size we were very apprehensive about the administration aspect. I am so grateful to have come across coacha as it has made my life seamless in terms of the membership process among other factors such as data protection. We have also set up a stripe account to collect our monthly fees and I am very ex... cited about this as it is going to completely eliminate the tiresome process of chasing people. The report section of coacha is also really handy to be able to track who has set up their subscription. Taylor & the coacha team’s response time to feedback is excellent and I have been very impressed with the service so far. Coacha is revolutionising the way we work and they are doing a fantastic job!  read more

No more chasing people for payments getting half cash half bank transfers or having to think who paid what, everything is sorted out with a click of a button! Highly recommend, great software!
