Sports technology leader leverages software development kit from Fiserv to enable payments within the Stack Sports ecosystem

Fiserv, Inc. (NASDAQ:FISV), a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, today announced that global sports tech leader Stack Sports is making youth sports-related payments easier and more efficient with proven Fiserv digital payment capabilities.

Stack Sports is leveraging the Digital Payments SDK from Fiserv to enable payment solutions directly within the Stack Sports ecosystem. Stack Sports is simplifying payments to referees and other officials made by youth sports organizations, offering this capability as one integrated solution, and enabling payments made by and between coaches, parents, and players for team expenses via a mobile solution. These streamlined digital payments replace cash and check exchanges, eliminating trips to the bank and awkward conversations about late payments and bounced checks for the tens of thousands of officials, organizations, coaches and parents who use Stack Sports technology.

"Our mission is to transform the youth sports experience by providing easy-to-use team management solutions," said Alex Alt, Chief Executive Officer, Stack Sports. "Fiserv was a fitting choice to help us expand upon our payments expertise and leadership. Our partnership will eliminate the hassle of certain sports-related payments, leveraging the excellent reputation of Fiserv in the money movement space. Enabling digital payments via Fiserv helps advance our mission so that officials, coaches, parents and players can focus on the game and not administrative details."

Digital Payments SDK allows companies to harness the Fiserv payments infrastructure that powers transactions for thousands of financial institutions and millions of consumers. The SDK enables companies to accept checking account-based payments and card-based payments through mobile apps, websites and other digital channels. It supports next-day and real-time payments and includes built-in risk management and security capabilities, including multiple methods for account verification and identity verification.

"As any parent of a young athlete can attest, team sports involve many types of payments, from tournament fees to uniform purchases," said Tom Allanson, president, Electronic Payments, Fiserv. "With Fiserv, Stack Sports is making life easier for parents, coaches, and others in the sporting community by streamlining the payments process and record keeping."
