In a new deal aimed at increasing the International federation’s global connectivity, World Bowling will adopt GameDay – Stack’s revolutionary registration, events and website platform. 

Stack Sports (SportsTG), the leading digital provider of sports organisations in Europe, Australia and New Zealand, today signed an agreement with World Bowling the international governing body for the sport of Tenpin, Ninepin and ParaBowling. 

The agreement affirms that Stack Sports will provide GameDay™, its next-generation membership and events platform, to service World Bowling’s many sanctioned events throughout the world. Stack’s system will simplify and digitise the registration and administration process for all members and competitors, across World Bowling’s portfolio of events starting from October 2020. As part of the partnership and in line with World Bowling’s post COVID-19 strategic Initiatives, GameDay will be made available to all five continental zones and the current 114 member federations. 

The partnership allows one of the world’s biggest infrastructure and participation sports to capitalise on the global connectivity of over 200,000 bowling lanes and 160 million bowlers annually. With the launch of QubicaAMF partnership, ParaBowling World Cup and IBX Tour in 2021, GameDay offers the functionality to World Bowling to optimise the tournament data from individual athletes and their member federations with defined ranking and career tracking throughout each event and year. 

Andy Graham, General Manager for Stack Sports – APAC/EMEA, said: “We are very pleased to be partnering with World Bowling at such a key time for the sport. Our aim every day is to simplify sporting administration and management; to let communities communicate, engage and come together to enjoy sport.
