Nowadays WordPress platform and community is being developed much more rapidly and massively than Joomla!. As a result WordPress Sport plugin JoomSport is becoming more and more popular and desirable.
Many customers asked us for solution that allows migrating JoomSport data from Joomla! to WordPress. Since we are experts in sport development for both platforms we have developed special script for JoomSport data migration that helps to import data from one CMS to another.
Using this script we can migrate the following data for you:
- match days with matches
- extra fields
More information about the service you will find on WebShop page.
If you have additional data that should be migrated please contact our team for getting more details about the migration process.

Please download the new 4.1.3 version from your Members Area.
Each JoomSport major release brings very special feeling to our team - emotion of celebration and proud of achievements. In fact it is the feeling that something important is changing again in our company and in our products and even more - that we actually leave a mark in history.
We're also glad to note that current release is not a trivial code update with some bug fixes but it includes some new WOW features inside. It was very hard to deliver this time - the team had so many discussions, disputes and emotions. Each member of our team hopes that EVERY customer who updates his local instances to the latest 4.1 release will also have this WOW feeling.
Let's go through the list of the changes together:
Improved Player statistic
We have delivered two optional blocks for Player profile page. Played minutes, Lineups, Substitutes, Goals and other Events can be displayed in Career block with flexible columns. This block allows comparing Player performance in different Seasons. Match Statistics block displays Player events by matches.
Effective way to display Round Robin fixtures and played matches. There is ability either display Matrix button on Season table or show a separate layout by adding the new Menu item. It is Delivered free of additional charge with the main product package as Matrix doesn't really bring new functionality but combines the way how the current data is presented.
Now match statistics is more useful than ever. Colorful timeline is a perfect visual display of Player events in their sequence. Match duration is used as base scale and event images are stringed on it.
New Calendar Layout
In JoomSport all matches are organized by Matchday and now there is ability to display Calendar by Matchday as well. Matches of separate Matchday on each page. Handy navigation allows getting to the required Matchday without any difficulties. By default Matchday with the most recent match is displayed first. Moreover new module with the same functionality is available in public version.
Mobile App API
Included mobile API will allow each client to purchase and use our future Mobile application product so this is the first step to get mobile application for your club or league.
Updated translation to Spanish (special thanks to Pasionporelrayo project), Slovak, Chinese, Portuguese, Czech, Slovenian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, French and Russian. Many thanks to all the translators who supported us on product localization!
Number of minor improvements and bug fixes
Predictions integration with Knockouts matches, Venue Google API fix, check version algorithm improvement, Match layout order by Player Extra field (Squad tab) doesn't work, unable to delete match custom status, improve knockout layout when branding removed, Today matches edit results are not added to the Season table, Scroll module alignment, fixed CSS for tooltip on calendar, big number inside the score fix, add all teams to the season fix.

We would be glad to hear your feedback.
Many years ago we started our JoomSport product because we were choosing some Joomla sport component for our local football team. At that time JomLeague was the most comprehensive and well known league management solution for Joomla. That was the product supported by open community. In spite of the fact that it had a lot of features our developer and co-founder Andrew didn't like much the structure of JomLeague so decided to start their own product idea. That is how JoomSport was started more than eight years ago...
Couple of years ago JomLeague stopped their official support due to the lack of community efforts. The last official release was compatible with Joomla CMS 2.5 only so the community had never received the official JomLeague version with Joomla 3 compatibility.
Recently we had a chance to analyze JoomLeague structure on deeper level as number of clients requested to convert their data from JomLeague to JoomSport. We should state that JoomLeague is really great product and it is a pity it has stopped the development. Honestly saying in some specific cases JoomSport still doesn't have the features that JomLeague had many years ago! At the same time technology doesn't stand still so today we have to notice that JomLeague became quite outdated system, in terms of design and CSS styling at least. So many clients have started looking for the way to convert their data from unsupported system to something new, officially supported and better looking.
Our team is glad to announce that we've managed to develop the script that converts JomLeague data to JoomSport database. We have already converted number of clients who are quite happy with the result and we would be glad to share free the script with anyone interested. Still we need to say that migration process is quite complicated even if you have the script itself and in most cases it takes 3-4 iterations to complete the migration perfectly. So our custom development team is actually ready to provide JomLeague data migration service for anyone interested.
After we stopped supporting the free edition of JoomSport for Joomla we constantly receive question weather we have the plans to build a free version of our product with basic features. As far as CMS market is moved from Joomla to WordPress blogging platform we decided to create such free JoomSport product for the most popular CMS, WordPress.
So recently standard version of JoomSport WordPress sport plugin became available on WordPress directory. It's absolutely free solution to build your sports web site easily. Std edition includes basic set of features such as:
But there are some features that are available in JoomSport Pro version on top of that:
Check the full features list on JoomSport.com
Upgrading to JoomSport Pro edition is quite fast and easy, moreover all data is saved during this process.
We keep the development active for the new product. We have already issued three public versions, in the nearest future we will deliver 1.2 release with knockout match sets, complex seasons and some time after that - front end management and Match generator add-on.
We are very proud to announce that JoomSport WordPress sport plugin version is already public!
The current release is open for clients who purchased the discounted license in our web shop and available for downloading in Members Area. The introductory price will be kept for a while until the moment we release the Front end management and Knockout features.
We have ported huge number of features into WordPress and some of them appeared even more flexible due to native WordPress structure and features compliance. Here is the main list available at this stage:
The change log of the released JoomSport for Joomla update 4.0.19 includes many improvements and number of important bug fixes.
After number of similar requests from our customers JoomSport product team decided to improve the front end UI of all JoomSport pages slightly. We have removed the component border and the color from the component header. We also commented the back navigation link in the source code. Normally customers use browser back function for such action. If you still need it you can remove comments from code. New default venue image is added. Some other minor front end and back end UI improvements are also delivered.
So the final result - clear and nice UI on all pages that fit any Joomla theme in better way and are not overloaded with extra design items.
Following our customer's requests we have extended JoomSport with special add-on that allows your site visitors to make match predictions and then to monitor who is the prediction leader once matches are played. This is just a perfect way to improve your sport league or club site visitors engagement. Add-on is available with 30% discount at our shop for a limited period of time. Special thanks to Ukranian AnimaUnity project for powering up this JoomSport extension!
If you are looking for overriding the native JoomSport html views and don't want to loose it during JoomSport updates, now you have this ability supported by JoomSport developers. The new method is described in JoomSport FAQ section.
At this stage JoomSport is partially translated in over 18 languages. The present release contains updates for Italian, Russian, Slovenian, Slovak, Polish, Spanish and some others. Are you interested to support us on your local language translation? Join our translators team in Transifex!

Summer is great for all kinds of sports and it is especially suitable for outdoor activities, just like running, jumping, cycling, and … swimming, of course. Today we are talking to Michael Badulescu, CTO of Swisswaterpolo.com about the latest enhancements implemented for the national water polo web site by the BearDev team.
Swiss Waterpolo, Chief Technical Director
BearDev: We know Switzerland as the country of a thousand lakes. As far as Swimming is greatly popular among Swiss people, would you say the same regarding water polo?
MB: Unfortunately, it is not so popular as Swimming, but we are growing slowly. Water polo in Switzerland is quite small community with about 1’500 licensed players. The competitions are played in swimming pools, so the numbers of lakes doesn’t help us a lot.
