EASTERN PENNSYLVANIA YOUTH SOCCER AND STACK SPORTS ANNOUNCE TECHNOLOGY PARTNERSHIP
Leading Sports Technology Provider Named as a Technology Partner to the Benefit of Member Leagues and Clubs
Plymouth Meeting, PA – Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer announced a long-term technology partnership with Stack Sports, the largest and fastest-growing global provider of sports technology, leveraging the U.S. Soccer Connect platform to benefit the state association’s member leagues and clubs. By leveraging U.S. Soccer Connect, a data and technology solution for leading associations that streamlines and improves connectivity and communication, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer is on the cutting edge of new technology-driven engagement with its membership.
Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer will be implementing the new registration system in early spring for the 2019/2020 seasonal year.
Through integrated web and mobile platforms developed by Stack Sports, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer will provide its members with a significantly simplified player registration process and adherence to the required standards for FIFA Connect and the International Clearance Certificate (ITC) process. The system will also provide members with a seamless integration with platforms such as U.S. Soccer’s National Data Center and Digital Coaching Center. The partnership will begin with Stack Sports providing a comprehensive and unmatched suite of products serving the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer community including dynamic websites, streamlined online registration and payments, event, team and roster management, scheduling, communications, video analysis and back office management. As part of the partnership with the state association, these products will be free or at a significantly reduced rate to its member leagues and clubs.
“Our goal at Stack Sports is to revolutionize youth sports and build technology solutions that were never thought possible just a few years ago in partnership with leading youth sports organizations,” said Matt Moran, VP of Soccer for Stack Sports. “The alliance with Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer to provide U.S. Soccer Connect to its membership is a dynamic example of what can happen when two leaders come together to change the game.”
“As a leader in the soccer marketplace, Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer is pleased to partner with a technology company that has the vision and capacity to help us grow the game,” said Chris Branscome, CEO of Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer. “An important feature is that this partnership helps us align our technology interests with the U.S. Soccer Federation technology for a more seamless process from the time a player registers, to when data is delivered to the national governing body for our sport. In addition, with the suite of products available to our member leagues and clubs, Stack Sports has been able to address our need on providing incredible value to our membership as we head into 2019 and beyond.”
