Statzpack the company making team stats simple, announced today an agreement with the Houston Dynamo, the Major League Soccer (MLS) team in the USA. The Houston Dynamo have established themselves as a leading franchise in the MLS, reinforced by their launch of the youth academy in 2007. “I can see how clubs at the grassroots and non professional levels could embrace a system like this. With the help of the team at Statzpack we got up and running very quickly and it’s simple to use.” says Houston Dynamo Youth Development Director, James Clarkson. “It beats pen and paper and is very affordable. StatzSoccer allows me to track and record data that we can feed back into our training sessions or share with the team in general.”
Statzpack launched their Soccer product in August with significant interest from clubs and teams around the world. Teams simply record stats by iPod or iPhone touch, and the data makes its way to a website where it is graphically presented on a simple-to-use ‘click and play’ dashboard system. The company boasts English, Irish, Dutch, Canadian and now American professional clubs in its user base. With an English Premier League team using the system in first team games.
“We thank the Houston Dynamo for their interest and support. To be selected by such a high profile club proves the robust and flexible nature of our StatzSoccer product. We’re pleased with response throughout the US and Canada, especially within our primary focus, the youth teams and development academies.” said Mark Roberts, Director at Statzpack. “We believe stats can help teams improve their game, and equally important, that the data should be owned by the club, not the stats collector, and made available to share with players, and stored for use over the years not forgotten in a corner somewhere.” You can find out more about the Dynamo Houston Academy here and you can email us at email@example.com.
