Localcities is the first digitization partner of the Swiss Gymnastics Association The largest platform of municipalities and associations and the umbrella organization of Swiss gymnastics have signed a three-year partnership contract until mid-2025.
The Swiss Gymnastics Federation (FSG) and Localcities join forces. As a digitization partner, the largest platform of the Swiss municipalities and clubs will support the FSG in setting up and expanding its online offers, and the approximately 3000 FSG gymnastics companies can benefit from the attractive platform and special offers from Localcities.
With the goal of a long-term partnership, FSG and Localcities have signed a three-year contract until mid-2025. “We are very excited about this partnership with Localcities. Our organizations both have a solid tradition in Switzerland and are very well anchored in local communities and gymnastics companies,” says Fabio Corti, Central President of the FSG, about the new partnership. Béatrice Wertli, director of the FSG, is also pleased about this cooperation: “Digitization is a priority for the FSG. Localcities’ know-how and experience will therefore be invaluable to us in this regard.”
Localcities offers every club in Switzerland a free digital presence
Localcities reliably brings together all important information from Swiss municipalities and associations on its digital platform, thus improving the interaction between citizens, municipalities and regions. Clubs can create their profile on Localcities free of charge, publish their events and thus address potential members directly in the 2148 communities. If a club is also interested in the Localcities website solution and the Localclubs club administration software, it can benefit from a global digital offer to present itself and ensure its administration in a simple and efficient manner. Clubs with fewer than 100 members can use Localclubs for free.
localsearch, a subsidiary of Swisscom, is the architect of Localcities. “Our heart beats for every community and every association because we are aware of their fundamental importance for living together in Switzerland. Citizens are already using digital technologies intensively, while clubs still have a lot of potential that needs to be exploited. We rely on our experience to support clubs that strive for digitization and help them achieve digital success. We are very pleased that the FSG, as a mainstay of Swiss gymnastics, shares this vision,” says Stefano Santinelli, CEO of localsearch.
