INTRODUCTION

FAI.net is the Governing Body Database introduced by the FAI organisations to manage the registration of club members.

ClubZap is the leading provider of membership management for FAI clubs to simplify the collection of membership payments, discounting and reporting to identify who has and has not paid their club membership.

Every player that has paid membership to your club via ClubZap must be registered on the Governing Bodies Database (FAI.net).

This includes:

  • New Members: These are members that do not currently have a Governing Body ID. (example: new players joining your nursery for the first time)

  • Existing Members: These are members that have an existing profile on the FAI.net System.

Any club using ClubZap to collect membership payments can now synchronise their members with FAI.net.

The format of the ClubZap generated csv file is compliant with the schema format set out by the FAI.net system

IMORT FILE FORMAT

The file exported out of ClubZap for importing info FAI.net is of the .csv format based on the following schema.

  • Gender must be inserted in a specific code; 100010 for Male. 100009 for Female.
