Korrio, a sports automation platform for youth soccer, announced on Tuesday a partnership with MLS’ D.C. United as the club’s automation platform provider of choice for all Academy and camp programs.
Korrio will manage all aspects of D.C. United’s Academy operations and be responsible for about 1,300 youth players.
“Korrio and D.C. United share a progressive perspective on using social media to connect the soccer community, and we view this as a perfect opportunity to take both of our organizations to a higher level,” said Steve Goldman, Korrio founder and CEO.
D.C. United Women are not affected by the announcement, but the MLS squad seems happy with the development.
“Korrio provides a great product and we’re looking forward to implementing their solution to further enhance development, efficiency and results of our Academy programming,” said United General Manager Dave Kasper.
Korrio is endorsed by U.S. women’s national team legend Kristine Lilly, which gives the brand some recognition on the women’s side. We’ll keep an eye out to see if more women’s teams latch onto this product as well.
