Whiteknights FC has become an iZettler

Whiteknights FC has become an iZettler âWhiteknights Football Club has been delivering youth football in Reading since 1986 and is and FA Charter Status club. We have over 150 players and the club has always been run and administered by volunteers.

Collecting payments and subscriptions from busy parents is always a challenge and it can take a long time. Part of the problem is that it has pretty much been cash or cheque until now.

Thanks to iZettle we can now accept credit card, debit card and prepaid card payments for a fee of only 2.75% with no set-up costs or monthly fees. We can even take payments from an American Express card!

This new payment facility should speed up the process on annual subscriptions which is a clear benefit to the club, the parents and ultimately our 150+ players.

WhiteKnights Football Festival 2011

In 2010, 220 teams took part in the tournament. This year’s festival is planned to be the largest the club has ever run and is over two days so that we can accommodate more teams, bigger leagues and ensure we give ALL the players plenty of playing time. Girls are very welcome in all the groups up to U11 and like many clubs we are keen to promote the girls game so we have additional girls-only sections.

It may be football for children, but it takes all the organisation of a commercial outdoor event. The planning team has booked the ambulance support, the risk assessment is under way, the catering is planned…and so it goes on.

In total there will be 240 teams playing at least 4 games each over 14 pitches. Glad I’m not planning that element.
