The Amateur Motor Cycle Association announces the launch of the AMCA Hub in the coming months

The Amateur Motor Cycle Association (AMCA) is delighted to announce that it will be launching a new online service, the AMCA Hub, to improve the online experience of riders and clubs across the UK.

Once launched, the AMCA Hub will replace the current online membership system to give riders and clubs greater control over their involvement in the sport. By creating a profile within the AMCA Hub you will be able to purchase and renew Rider Licences, apply for Championship registration, as well as enter the 100’s of events taking place each year.

The launch of the AMCA Hub will also see riders be able to take advantage of a number of new features such as digital rider licences that can be added to Apple and Android smartphones. There will also be a variety of tools design specifically for Clubs, including administration features for management members and event-related functionality that we hope will support events across the country.

The AMCA has been supporting the growth of off-road motorcycling since 1932, making the organisation one of the oldest authorising bodies of its kind in the world. We continue to provide support to riders of all ages and abilities across the country, and the launch of the AMCA Hub is the organisation’s latest initiative aimed at creating greater levels of engagement with all those involved in the sport.

Suzanne Potts, General Manager at the Amateur Motor Cycle Association, believes the introduction of the AMCA Hub will mark a big step forward for the organisation:

“We’ve known for a while that we wanted to improve the online services provided to everyone participating in our sport, but it was a case of finding the right partner who could deliver what we had envisaged. We believe we have found that partner in Sport:80 who came to us with a great reputation and glowing references from peers in our industry. They have taken the time to get in to the detail of our organisation and how we can improve the online experience for our members. Now just a couple of months away from launching the AMCA Hub, we have been really impressed with what we have seen and I’ve no doubt that it’s going to be of huge benefit to riders, clubs and our organisation.”

The AMCA appointed Sport:80 as its Technology Partner earlier this year, making the decision to adopt the company’s innovative sport management technology. The AMCA Hub is due to launch before the end of the year and will provide members of the Governing Body with a new way to engage with the sport prior to the start of the 2018 season.
