MLS Club Houston Dynamo Signs Performa Sports

Mon 10th Mar 2014 | IT & Technology

Major League Soccer franchise, Houston Dynamo has signed Performa Sports to aid player development.

As one of the leading Major League Soccer franchises, Dynamo has an extensive academy and player development programme. Their constant drive for talent identification and effective skills enhancement, demands a flexible, user-friendly and highly efficient performance analysis solution that can be used consistently across its entire coaching staff.  

''I already knew about the product from work I did in Sierra Leone. I'd seen what they were doing with other clients, like the Craig Bellamy Academy, and how easy it was to take to the pitch,” said Tom Harris, Technical Co-ordinator with Houston Dynamo.

Performa Sports Marketing Director, Joseph Turley said “We are delighted that our first Major League Soccer customer is Houston Dynamo.

“At the forefront of the league since its inception, Dynamo continue to implement fresh approaches in the growth of their franchise and the development of Soccer in the US and we are looking forward to helping with their academy performance analysis requirements and ongoing player development strategies.”

According to Houston Dynamo’s Youth Director, James Clarkson “With the MLS expanding every year, the player pool from which to draw from becomes smaller and smaller.

“For the Dynamo it is important to develop our own players so we can constantly compete for the MLS Cup.

“Using Performa Sports allows us to efficiently monitor all the players in our system from a very analytical stand point. Players can view their own performances from each game and look at the statistical data that is collected from them, helping to improve player learning.

“We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with Performa Sports.”
