Norwalk, CT — February 1, 2019 — Payball, a leading nationwide app for paying sports officials, coaches, and staff, announced that it has partnered with the Interstate Box Lacrosse Association (IBLA) to become their official payment provider for 2019. The league will use Payball to pay all sports officials, coaches, event staff, trainers, and other league contractors.
“We were very excited to be contacted by the IBLA,” said Payball Founder and CEO Peter Makover, who was Captain of the 1993 Penn State Men’s Lacrosse Team. “Lacrosse is one of the fastest growing sports in the country and we love playing a role in that growth, as word of Payball has taken hold throughout the lacrosse community.”
“As the governing body of our regional leagues, we believe Payball will help us simplify and standardize our processes throughout the country,” said IBLA National Director, Brandon Scharaga, “which will help us continue expanding into new regions like California and Arizona where you’ll see our game officials sporting the Payball logo on their jerseys.”
The IBLA has nine regional leagues across the country in Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, Pacific Northwest, California, Minnesota, New England, New Jersey and Arizona. The IBLA plans to use Payball to manage payments to sports officials, coaches, event staff, trainers and other league contractors.
Payball was launched in 2016 to simplify the administrative headaches often involved with managing game payments. The app streamlines the process for sports organizations, enabling them to make payments easily and quickly with full tracking and reporting capabilities. Payball was named a “Must Have App” by U.S. Lacrosse Magazine, a “Recommended App” by the National Alliance for Youth Sports and is the official payment provider for the Women’s Pro Lacrosse League (WPLL) as well as the IBLA. It is being used in a number sports in over 20 states throughout the country.
