FLi expects the new platform to offer greater individuality for clubs and provide enhanced sponsorship opportunities with an emphasis on speed and stability. The current platform has been provided by Perform Group for more than ten years and though it has implemented three or four redesigns, some clubs and fans have been critical of the rigid template which makes many of the websites look the same.
Ian Ritchie, chairman of FLi, said: "FLi is proud to be at the vanguard of digital development providing the very best products for the millions of football fans in our network. We are extremely excited about working with SapientNitro who will provide the necessary means for us to continue pushing the boundaries of our range of digital platforms."
Perform Group will continue to provide video and audio services, such as the Club Player subscription product which has over 80,000 global subscribers.
