Minimum Requirements

  • WordPress 3.8 or greater
  • PHP version 5.2.4 or greater
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater

Automatic Installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of SportsPress, log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type «SportsPress» and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our sports plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking Install Now. After clicking that link you will be asked if you’re sure you want to install the plugin. Click yes and WordPress will automatically complete the installation.

Manual Installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our sports plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favorite FTP application.

  1. Download the plugin file to your computer and unzip it
  2. Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress installation’s wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  3. Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

If on the off-chance you do encounter issues with the event/team/player/staff pages after an update you simply need to flush the permalinks by going to WordPress > Settings > Permalinks and hitting ‘save’. That should return things to normal.

What’s the difference between the free and Pro plugin?

SportsPress is a free plugin developed to give sports organizations the functionality needed to run a team, club, or league website. The plugin allows you to schedule your upcoming matches and enter the results after you’ve played a game. Your league tables, team and player statistics will automatically update once you’ve published the result to reflect the new standings.

Limitations? Don’t worry, there are no limitations to the number of events, players, staff members, teams, clubs, or leagues you can add to the free plugin.

SportsPress Pro is a premium plugin made for serious teams who are looking for additional sports functionality in their website. By upgrading to SportsPress Pro, you will be given instant access to a suite of sports modules that will appear in your dashboard.

I absolutely do not understand why they make purchasing a plugin complicated by forcing you to use PayPal. I corresponded with them and wanted to pay by card, bank transfer. I was told they would find out. After 14 days I had to buy the plugin because the client was already pressuring me. Now I can't delete the PalPal account and the data in it. Stupid payment method, I will talk the client out of using this plugin. I don't want to experience another payment.

Our sport club has been using plugin "SportPress Pro" and template "Premier" for a long time. I needed to upgrade PHP version, but something was wrong. After contacting the helpdesk, the problem was quickly resolved. I'd be happy to wait for a regular update, but guys from the helpdesk offered to deploy it in "hot patch mode" directly to our website.Many thanks to @RochOliveira. Great help for a person who doesn’t have a deep knowledge of webmaster. Marek Filipovsky, TJ Mnichovice, CZE

It has all kinds of sports preconfigured, but it lacks motorsports, it could come prepared for motorsports too, with support for multi categories of racing sports, individual racing drivers or teams. However I loved the system, very practical and intuitive. Thanks!

Had a few issues with Sportspress Gallery images not showing properly due to issues with my current theme. Sportspress tech support advised me of some code to add in wordpress and issues now fixed. Top job!
