Stack Sports, the largest and fastest-growing provider of sports technology, today announced a five-year extension of its strategic partnership with PA West Soccer, the governing body for US Youth Soccer in Western Pennsylvania.
Currently powering over 20,000 clubs as well as 50 National Governing Bodies and State Associations, Stack Sports will continue to deliver best-in-class technology and service to PA West through its U.S. Soccer Connect platform, an exclusive version of Stack's Sports Connect platform developed in conjunction with U.S. Soccer. The U.S. Soccer Connect platform will provide the operating system and integrated solutions for the state association, its member clubs and leagues, and the parents, players, coaches and teams participating in PA West's soccer community.
"In a time with so much change and uncertainty, we know we can count on Stack Sports to be there. This long-term partnership will support our goals to continue to grow the game of soccer through innovative thinking and great programming. We are looking forward to a bright future for Soccer in Western Pennsylvania," said Tim McCoy, Executive Director of PA West.
" We are both motivated and humbled about the opportunity to continue innovating and delivering unique experiences for years to come with PA West and its soccer community. Developing deep strategic partnerships is fundamental to everything we do, and our relationship with PA West is a perfect example of that," said Tom Arnett, General Manager of Sports Connect.
Members of PA West will be able to take advantage of U.S. Soccer Connect's athlete safety features, mobile-first player registration, digital marketing hub, comprehensive financial reporting, automated coach compliance, and direct integration with the U.S. Soccer Federation. This connected ecosystem will save staff and volunteers thousands of administrative hours annually and will continue to improve the connectedness of the game globally.
