FiXi takes the hassle out of managing your sporting competitions all in one easy to use application. Everything from player and team management to scheduling of your competitions. It is a powerful business tool that allows you to effectively manage administrative tasks and build your customer and revenue streams. Here are just some of the features:
What truly sets Fixi apart is its fixturing capabilities, predominately its ability to generate multiple, basic and or complex fixtures at once. We have worked closely with our clients to help build an innovative and powerful solution that no other system has been able to deliver.
Instant Fixtures pro
Basic fixtures can be created instantaneously with the click of a single button. See it in action on YouTube.
Balanced Fixtures pro
Teams are fixtured to play each team once before playing each other for the second time. Each team is allocated an even amount of home and away matches. Furthermore, an even spread of time slots are allocated to each team, ensuring a fair fixture.
Clash Avoidance pro
Clashes are automatically avoided with existing allocations (i.e. other fixture matches, scratch matches and bookings), including matches played on layered courts.
Holiday Management pro
If you're closed on school and public holidays, users can easily skip these specific dates when creating a fixture.
Time Preferences pro
Adding time preferences for each team is made easy using a drag and drop style interface, this coupled with a sophisticated algorithm, ensures teams are fixtured to play at times suitable to them.
Multiple Fixtures at Once pro
Multiple fixtures can be created simultaneously sharing the selected courts and allocated time slots; this saves time, effort and consequently improves overall efficiency.
Play Order Manipulation pro
Each team’s position in the fixture algorithm can be changed to manipulate the play order, a preview of the fixture can then be generated before commitment to the changes is made.
Advanced Fixtures pro
Multiple blocks of playing times can be specified over multiple days, weeks, or even months. In addition, the same courts or alternatively different courts, can be allocated for each block of time, providing the necessary control and flexibility to create advanced fixtures.
Multiple Rounds Per Week pro
Fixtures can be created so that multiple rounds are played every week, or alternatively, on selected weeks, thus creating exciting double header rounds.
Extendable Fixtures pro
Fixtures can be extended an unlimited amount of times over an unlimited number of rounds, this can prove to be very useful since the number of rounds for a fixture is sometimes unknown at the time of creation.
Editable Fixture pro
Fixtures will at times need to be edited to cater for any changes that may occur in a competition cycle. With our easy to use interface, manipulation of every match is easy.
Built in Swap Functions pro
The software provides a number of automatic solutions to address common problems. The swap function can for example, allow the user to easily replace a weaker team with a stronger team in a lower grade competition. See this particular swap scenario in our video.

Fixi’s online registration system takes the hassle out of organizing a new season of registrations. Create your competition in Fixi and wait for the registrations to come in, save time on data entry and alleviate errors. Optionally, request teams or players to make an initial payment using PayPal or Credit Card to secure their place. Watch our explainer video and visit our blog for more details.
Online Data Capture pro
Ensure your business stays up to date with the latest technologies. Fixi allows users to create their own online registration forms with direct access to data upon submission. No more tedious data input, no more paper registration forms.
The online registration form can be configured to cater for your specific needs. Select the data to capture, mandatory fields, set age constraints, the maximum numbers of players per team, attach links to 'terms & conditions' and create custom questions. Configure the form requesting the team admin to send out invitations to all players or alternatively allow the team admin to complete the process on behalf of the entire team.
Although online registration payments are optional, a good way of ensuring teams and players are committed to playing for the entire season is to request an upfront online registration payment. The process is simple; specify the fee and we will handle the rest. Once a registration is complete, you can decide how the payment will be allocated within Fixi. Our online registration system accepts both PayPal & Credit Card. Alternative options include the ability to pay at a later point in time or private registrations where invoice payments can be made.
Active Kids Vouchers pro
Approved Active Kids providers can now further streamline their processes by accepting vouchers via our online registration system. Learn more by visiting the official website.
Automatic Import pro
Once your teams and players register online, all data is automatically imported into the Fixi System increasing your data accuracy and saving you endless hours of manual data entry. All you need to do is assign them into a competition and notify them when their first match is, this can be done via email or SMS.
When the new season rolls around and existing teams / players re-register – no duplicate data is created within Fixi, the details are simply updated avoiding the need to merge data.

Users can link competition points; this is especially useful for gradings. Teams can move from one competition to another without losing their respective points.

By sending the fixtures as notifications, not only will your carbon footprint be reduced but there will be an increase in convenience for customers.
