Mission Brief

Sportsyear is an established Australian printed sports diary & calendar producer that is taking their expertise in sports into a new range of digital sports data services. Sportsyear has begun compiling a large database of upcoming sports fixtures from around the world.

Work with Raine & Makin to develop a custom built responsive web app for Sportsyear that provides access to their database for members to build their own custom sports calendar.


  • Develop a responsive web app according to designs
  • Create a secure authenticated member only app restricted to 3 simultaneous login sessions per member
  • Provide a search tool that allows members to search through Sportsyear’s comprehensive database of sports fixtures with filters for date range, player or team, sport or league, location or venue, broadcast live and ranking
  • Allow searches to be saved for quick access in the future
  • Allow searches to be synchronised with a member’s own sports calendar to automatically add all search results to their calendar
  • Enable sports fixture search results to be individually added to or removed from a member’s own sports calendar
  • Provide a calendar view and a list view of the member’s sports calendar
  • Allow members to change various settings for their account such as password, timezone, location, email alerts
  • Build on top of a custom Sportsyear API that can be used by different apps and systems, including third party


Technical lead & design support, system architect, developer and hosting provider including coding, setup and ongoing support.

Designed by Raine & Makin.


The Sportsyear app went live in March 2017 and now has a solid and growing paid membership particularly in the hospitality industry. The uptake in the hospitality industry has been so much so that it’s created the need for the Sportsyear widget.
