Passport: What is SP Passport?

SP Support
posted this on September 7, 2012, 00:28

SP Passport is a single sign in that links you to all the things you do in the SportingPulse Network. 


What are the benefits to Administrators in Sport?

  1. SP Passport allows administrators to access all Network entry points (all Membership and Website logins) via a single email sign in.

  2. SP Passport empowers users with tools of relevance under a single sign in such as;

    • The ability to receive game reminders

    • The ability to manage newsletters (current functionality under the ‘mySport’ brand),

      Remembering your participation records; including all your registration and payment records, (phase 2)

      View of playing history within the Network. (phase 3) 

What will the user experience look like?

You can view some screens of the new SP Membership sign in showing the prompts the user will see as they transition from UN/PW to Email/PW via the SP Passport system, HERE

Who will use SP Passport?

For launch we will focus on two key audiences:

  1. Existing mySport members:

    Eight years ago SportingPulse launched a network called mySport. The concept was to allow members to bookmark favourite leagues, sign up for game reminders and communications from favourite clubs and teams. It worked well, over 300,000 individuals signed up, but the mySport brand was too associated with social networking, as opposed to a functional dashboard that linked a user to their saved items and logins.

    Simply, we are going through a transition for these members, stripping out any ‘social’ function, that is now so embedded in networks such as Facebook and revisiting what was important to them.

  2. Sport Administrators:

    Both membership and website administrators will be transitioned to SP Passport. There will be a window up until 30 November when they will be able to use the ‘old’ sign in. After this time they will need to sign in

    via SP Passport.

Will a participant or supporter need to create a SP Passport?

Participants will automatically be given an SP Passport if they have an existing mySport account.
New participants and supporters will be able to create one if they would like to receive Game Reminders, Results notifications, check player history and payment records.

Why are we introducing SP Passport?

We are moving from a username / password scenario in SP Membership to email / password for the following reasons;

  • Many administrators juggle logins for multiple database entry points and also their SP Website. SP Passport will allow a single sign in for these administrators

  • An email address gives us better auditing capacity than a UN/PW, as we are able to track the individual sign in that made a database change

  • We can more effectively communicate with administrators on software updates and any disruption to SP services

Can I still access my mySport account?

Existing mySport members who transition will simply see all their saved sign ins, communications and game reminders transition from mySport into SP Passport; with the ability to access their mySport page via SP Passport. 


Finally, here's a look at the SP Passport dashboard.  Its simple, functional and free.  You'll be able to link to all your favourite leagues, game reminders, communications and logins via SP Passport.  AND, every page in the SP Network will have a global navigation element; meaning, SP Passport will always be only one click away

Hi Warren

Passport doesn't provide you with this information, you need to login to your SP Membership Club database to see this.

Sorry for the wait on this reply by the way!

If you have a specific request, feel free to submit a request and one of our Agents will help you out.

Hello Brett,

We are currently in discussion with the team at FFA to see if there is a way we can link the two registration processes together.  The challenge is that the MyFootballClub solution used is a different one to ours, at this stage I would say that functionality won't occur this year.

Hi Brett,

Good luck with building future links to MyFootballClub.  

1) For 2013 is there any form of data feed from MFC into SP? If not player data, then maybe team-level data or club-level data?

2) Alternatively, what are my options in terms of exporting a .csv from MFC, manually manipulate the data to an accepatable format, and then uploading into SP.

I'm new here so sorry if this has been covered elsewhere - just point me in the right direction.

Hi Stew,

SportingPulse integrates with My Football Club so once a member has been made active in My Football Club, then that Member feeds across (this feed occurs 4 times a day) 

This is for Referees, Players, Coaches and Volunteers.

There is no way of manually uploading the data from MFC to SportingPulse as all data entry is done through My Football Club and fed across automatically to save any manual work!

I am trying to update our Club Logo, in one place so it is replicated across all teams within sportingpulse. I can upload against a team, and against the club and see this within the admin, though it is not visible on sportingpulse to the general public.

It states I require additional access and my association has stated I have what is required. Could you please advise if there is a menu I have not seen.

Thank you

Hi Julia,

Which Club & Association are you from? If you upload your Club logo to your SP Standard Club website it will achieve this.

Best regards,
