Sports Connect, powered by Stack Sports, will provide technology solutions for the state association, NDSA member clubs and associations, and the participating players, coaches, families, and volunteers.
Sports Connect is a key component of the U.S. Soccer Connect mission of growing participation and advancing the sport of soccer in conjunction with U.S. Soccer. The U.S. Soccer Connect initiative consists of leading services powered by Stack Sports connecting every level of the soccer pathway. It represents the largest commitment of technology and sport resources to any project in American sports history.
“Over the last year, one of our top priorities has been to secure a technology partner who can help us ensure our members access to superior club management with best-in-class support to keep their season running smoothly and ultimately grow the game of soccer in North Dakota,” said Tom Marcis, President of NDSA. “After meeting with and viewing multiple platforms, we are pleased to announce our new partnership with Sports Connect as the Exclusive Technology Provider of North Dakota Soccer Association.
