WSA Procurement Portal now open to NISF members

The Northern Ireland Sports Forum (NISF)  is delighted to announce that Member organisations can now access  the Welsh Sports Association (WSA)  Procurement Portal for sport and leisure, designed in conjunction with and powered by partners 2buy2.  Following agreement with our colleagues at the Welsh Sports Association, the portal is now available to Northern Ireland Sports Forum members!


To develop the portal, the WSA worked with strategic partners CLUK, establishing solutions to support the sports sector amid the financial challenges faced since the onset of COVID-19 and, more recently, the cost-of-living crisis. The WSA has been keen to highlight the importance of collaboration and economies of scale to offer the sector practical solutions to deal with these mounting challenges. In this regard, work began on a joint procurement offering back in February 2021, with an initial pilot project to prove the case for collective procurement.

The results from the five member organisations that participated were compelling and led to the WSA’s collaboration with 2buy2 on delivering a comprehensive procurement service, which aims to deliver the best value outcomes for sport and leisure.

Additional demand-led services and products will continue to be added to the portal as and when required.
