When a club connects their social media accounts with ClubZap it removes the replication for club admins in updating multiple communication channels. Once integration is completed a single click can update 4 channels of communication for your sports club: App + Website + Facebook + Twitter

  1. Login to the Admin portal here

  2. Ensure you are logged out of your personal Facebook page on your device

  3. Select Club Settings -> Social Media from the left hand menu

  4. Select “Connect Facebook” button.

5. Click on the option to Connect or Reconnect (if you were previously connected)

6. Enter your Facebook Login Details for a subscriber who has Admin privileges for your Club Page
7. Once successfully connected click on Got it to confirm.

8. Next you will be asked which page you want to integrate with - click on the link for the page required to complete the setup.


What type of Facebook page can I post to?

Recent security changes by Facebook means 3rd party applications like ClubZap can only post to clubs Facebook pages who are setup as an organisation or Business. As a result we cannot post to pages that are stup as personal pages (i.e: You must add as a friend to see content rather than simply like the page) and can only post to community or business pages which is the norm now a days for sports clubs.

Reconnecting your page

If your Facebook page changes or a new page is created you may need to connect your account for integration with ClubZap again. This is normally achieved by going to
Club Settings -> Social Media and selecting the Reconnect Facebook option and following the steps detailed above.
If you have issues reconnecting your Facebook page it may be down to permissions which can usually be resolved by removing the old ClubZap profile on your clubs Facebook account and reconnecting which creates a new profile.
