Sponge is a server mod used on 1.8 and above modded servers wanting to use plugins. Sponge requires the use of a different type of plugin, known as a Sponge plugin. So by that logic, Bukkit/Spigot plugins cannot be installed on a Sponge server.
 
If you’re running a modded Forge/modpack server that is using version 1.8 or above, please contact our Modpacks department for assistance with the installation of Sponge!
