Get your game face on because this is where we dig in to the variety and complexity of functions offered on the esportsdesk.com platform. We pioneered this industry when we established our company back in 1997 and have been continually innovating to strengthen our offerings ever since. We are dedicated to bringing your sports or social organization the very best that the web has to offer.
These core features are born out of a 16 year track record of directly responding to the expressed needs of our clients. They form the foundation of the custom solutions we've built for teams, leagues, tournaments, associations, universties and institutions in more than 60 countries around the world. Today, we are well positioned to reach into new markets and serve a more diverse clientele than ever before.
The following lists are long but not exhaustive, so if you have any questions or want advice regarding your specific needs, don't hesitate to contact us for a chat.
The features below are available on all of our websites, whether Free, Plus or Pro.

Your organization's data is just that - yours. You can export it using this function as needed to run whatever reports you may need.

Add referees, umpires, linesmen, scorekeepers, etc. to your website and then assign these officials to games. Your visitors, and the officials themselves, can switch from the "Main Schedule" to the "Officials Schedule" to see who is officiating which games. They can even filter by official and print the whole thing for off-line reference.
Once your schedule has been created, it takes only a few seconds to enter a game score from any internet connected computer in the world; the score is instantly posted on your website and, in the case of a league, your standings will automatically be updated.
More detailed game scores and stats can be entered with our Advanced Statistics packages available in the Plus and Pro packages.
When entering the game score, you can also enter individual player statistics. You are presented with a list of all players and possible stats. Simply fill in the blanks and press submit. The game's stats are immediately added to the season and career stats and posted online in real time.
Standings are generated automatically based on your sport and settings and are updated whenever games scores are entered.
When you enter the full address of the location, the system will automatically generate a link to the location in Yahoo! Maps for your visitors to click on.

You also have the option to enter comments and/or directions to each location.

Eliminate the double entry of data. This feature is most commonly used for team websites where the league they play in also has an esportsdesk.com website. All team, roster, personnel, schedule and statistical data is entered into the league's website and flows seamlessly to the team's website, updating it in real-time. Team's can focus on their own local news, photos, videos and community features while the rest is taken care of behind the scenes.
IDS can also be used for a league or a tournament whose parent organization also uses an esportsdesk.com website.

Each registrant has the ability to upload their own photo during registration or the administrator can upload the photo on the player's behalf.
Printable scoresheets are automatically filled out with Team Roster information from the database. Whether the information was entered via Team Online Registration, Single Player Online Registration or manually by the administrator, this feature is a huge time saver and ensures accuracy and legibility while providing a more professional touch to your organization.

Join our network of publishers who are earning money every month from the advertisements placed on their websites. We have built a large network of websites with significant traffic that allows us to approach large media buyers en masse and provide advertising sales services to smaller local organizations. There is no investment to get setup and our partnerships are non-exclusive so you can still gather your own local sponsors.
These features can be added to a Plus or Pro website for a fee.
Our Mobile Website offering enhances your organization's web presence and eases browsing for your visitors and clients on their smartphones. We made a strategic decision to develop a mobile website that works great and functions the same across all mobile platforms (iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone). Rather than requiring the download of an app, your users simply type in your web address and are automatically redirected to your mobile website.
If you have screens at your venue that can display a webpage, we can provide an up to the minute custom rotation that includes schedules, standings and stats for each of your divisions throughout the event.
