This study proposes to address the problem of how an Irish Sporting Federation (ISF) can achieve their goals of supporting and developing the game in a more effective and
efficient manner. The core services undertaken by the ISF's are administration, education, provision of equipment and provision of resources. The proposed solution would be to utilise the internet in order to achieve the ISFs goals.
By creating a multi-faceted online platform the -1SF's could fulfil their role as a core service provider to the clubs in a more effective and efficient manner.
Research for this study included telephone interviews based on a pre-defined questionnaire and an extensive literature review of all traditional and new business models that may or may not be applicable in creating an online portal for an ISF. The majority of interviewees agreed that having a central location to access the required information on demand would be an ideal solution.
