Aiming to establish a long-term partnership, the FSG and Localcities have concluded a three-year contract until mid-2025. “We are delighted with this partnership with Localcities. Our organizations both have a solid tradition in Switzerland and are very well anchored locally with municipalities and gymnastics companies”, says Fabio Corti, central president of the FSG, about the new partnership. Béatrice Wertli, Director of the FSG, is also delighted with this collaboration: “Digitalization is a priority file for the FSG. The know-how and experience of Localcities will therefore be invaluable to us in this respect.”

Localcities offers every association in Switzerland a free digital presence

On its digital platform, Localcities reliably brings together all important information from Swiss municipalities and associations, thus improving interaction between citizens, municipalities and regions. Associations can create their profile on Localcities for free, publish their events and thus address potential members directly in the 2148 municipalities. If an association is also interested in the Localcities website solution and the Localclubs association administration software, it can benefit from a global digital offer to present itself and ensure its administration in a simple and efficient way. Clubs with less than 100 members can use Localclubs for free.

A Swisscom affiliate, localsearch is the architect of Localcities. “Our heart beats for each municipality and association, because we are aware of their fundamental importance for cohabitation in Switzerland. Citizens already make extensive use of digital technology, while associations still have great potential to be exploited. We are betting on our experience to support associations aiming for digitization and help them achieve digital success. We are very pleased that the FSG, which is a pillar of Swiss gymnastics, shares this vision”, says Stefano Santinelli, CEO of localsearch.
