AFC Revamps League & Tournament Management

Mon 28th Nov 2016 | Marketing & PR

Asian Football Confederation selects Genius Sports to revamp league and tournament management.

The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has entered into an agreement with Genius Sports, a global leader in sports data technology, distribution and commercialisation services, to develop a Competition Management system that can be rolled out to the AFC’s 47 Member Associations.

The Competition Management system is fully integrated with the FIFA Connect Programme and will be used to help Member Associations manage both professional and amateur leagues and tournaments in their respective countries.  

It will cover all aspects of competitions including fixture generation, referee and tribunal management, match cards, results recording, league standings, statistics and accreditation. 

Dato’ Windsor John, AFC General Secretary, said: “We are committed to providing tools to Member Associations to enable them to operate with optimum efficiency.

“Managing competitions and collecting and distributing data to fans, sponsors and media is crucial for all our Member Associations.

“We are delighted to be working with Genius Sports who will help plan and manage our competitions in a workflow-driven, modern and paperless way.”

Nick Maywald, Managing Director of Genius Sports (pictured), said: “We are honoured to have been selected and trusted by the AFC to develop and deliver our Competition Management system for its Member Associations.

“Powered by Genius Sports, Competition Management and FIFA Connect will provide the AFC’s Member Associations with the most sophisticated system on the market.

“We are excited to be a major part of the AFC’s efforts to support the growth of its Member Associations.”
