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.”
