Project - Balmain Football Club Website

The Balmain & District Football Club was established 1969 as the Balmain Police Citizens Club Soccer Section and has developed into the biggest Sydney football club with 2000+ members. Our membership covers both male and female players and ranges from the Tiny Tigers to our 045s teams.

The club website was used as its main form of communications between the club and it’s players, however the website had a number of problems.


The Problems

The Balmain Football club website had a number of issues :

  • Web security,
  • problems with “information sprawl”,
  • It was running an older version of content management system (CMS) which was no longer supported,
  • The old website did not work on tablets or mobile and the information had aged over a number of years.

The Solution

Netology :

  • Designed, installed and configured a security system for its CMS
  • Upgraded the website to the most current version of Joomla,
  • Netology migrated the pages to a newer template which works great with Mobiles (iPhone and Android), tablets and desktop browsers.

Netology deployed a number of interactive features such as  Google Maps detailing the location of each playing field, club calendar and Facebook Like box

  • Google Maps detailing the location of each playing field,
