SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Real Salt Lake has announced that the club has partnered with SciSports, the leading provider of football data intelligence, to widen the club’s worldwide player coverage.

“We are excited to build our relationship with SciSports and utilize the platform they provide to refine and improve how we scout and recruit players for Real Salt Lake and Real Monarchs,” said RSL Technical Director Dan Egner. “We’ve been utilizing SciSports for a little while now, and it is clear that it will help us evolve in our scouting and recruitment process.”

The SciSports software allows Real Salt Lake to have access to over 180,000 players worldwide from over 250 leagues.

This makes it possible for the club to quickly find, screen and compare potential acquisitions based on its philosophy and identity of play.

The combination of answer-driven insights and easy to apply filter settings make the SciSports Platform the most powerful scouting and recruitment tool in the industry, according to a statement from RSL.

“Every club in the MLS is a big one, but Real Salt Lake is able to be in control with a small team and efficient scouting process,” said SciSports Manager Football Jesper Gudde. “In a really short time Dan Egner and I were both convinced that we could strengthen each other. I’m really looking forward to support RSL with a wider coverage in the world and to translate their club philosophy in our SciSports Platform.”

SciSports Platform

The SciSports Platform offers actionable insights into more than 180,000 active players, 250 leagues and 3,700 clubs. Advanced data metrics offer insights into the (potential) skill level, playing style and performance of every player on an individual basis. Combined with the ability to apply easy search and filter functionalities to simply map out entire regions and leagues, the platform is the ideal partner for football professionals to stay ahead of the competition.
