The United Soccer League (USL) has become the latest professional sports league to sign up with GotPro Solutions.
The USL will use GotSoccer’s state of the art GotPro software to generate their schedule for next year’s 2018 season.
Founded in 2010, The USL is the second highest tier of professional soccer in the American League System. In its inaugural season, the USL was comprised of 15 teams playing in a 24-game regular season. However, the league has grown immensely in just few short years and now has 30 teams playing a 32-game regular season – making it the biggest single division that GotPro currently creates schedules for.
“We are so pleased to be working with the USL” said GotSoccer CEO, Gavin Owen-Thomas. “We work with professional sports leagues from all around the globe, but as a American company, it is especially nice to work with an organization like the USL that is passionate and devoted to growing and developing soccer in the USA”.
Born out of a desire to build a modern cloud-based professional scheduling program, GotPro allows sports organizations to create the optimal schedule possible using constrained optimization. The state of the art GotPro software allows sports organizations to input all the things they wish to achieve and avoid in a schedule, and then finds the solution that best fits their desired goal allowing the sport organization to create the optimal schedule that meets all their needs, benefiting the league’s clubs, players and fans.
“I think the digital platform is the biggest benefit in the switch to the GotPro Platform” said Brett Luy, vice president of the USL’s league operations.
“the opportunity for the clubs to have their own window into the scheduling process. … Moving forward it will give us and the clubs the opportunity to make sure we have eyes on the process and can get as close to the perfect schedule as we possibly can”
As well as generating the optimal schedule, GotPro also offers a range of innovative report and analytic tools to help professional leagues & clubs improve and maximize their performance.
GotPro also creates the schedules and fixtures for 15 other major leagues world-wide.
