Switzerland Rugby have selected SportLoMo as their new provider for Membership & Registration and Event Management.  They will also use SportLoMo’s Competition Management (scheduling, scoring and electronic team sheets) and Referees and Game Officials will be managed on the platform.

Sportlomo will add Italian to current available languages to facilitate Suisse Rugby.
