A collaboration between the USA’s No.1 Soccer Software Solution & the world’s most trusted weather brand to deliver the most accurate weather forecasts for U.S. Youth Soccer
GotSoccer and AccuWeather are collaborating to launch GotWeather, an innovative tool that gives the U.S. Youth Soccer community the most accurate weather forecasts for their upcoming games.
GotSoccer is the most visited soccer website and the leading soccer software solution in the USA, used by more than 2000 league and tournament events to schedule over one million soccer games annually.
AccuWeather is the world’s largest and fastest-growing weather company, providing forecasts for over 1.5 billion people worldwide to help them plan their lives, protect their businesses, and get more from their day.
The new collaboration between GotSoccer and AccuWeather means U.S. Youth Soccer members will now be able to view match day forecasts at the convenient click of a button. All users have to do is find their GotSoccer scheduled games, click on the GotWeather Forecast button and they will be directed to AccuWeather, where they will receive the best and most accurate forecast for the field location of their game.
“At GotSoccer we are always looking for new and innovative ways to help the soccer community and we believe this collaboration does just that”, said GotSoccer CEO, Gavin Owen-Thomas.
“The partnership with AccuWeather means soccer players, teams, parents and events can make better preparations for game day, be it by selecting the correct cleats, having extra water, covering fields, or even bringing sun lotion.”
“As a parent, I can attest to the fact that while players enjoy kicking a soccer ball in all types of weather, us parents like a heads up so we can plan ahead,” said Steven Smith, President of Digital Media for AccuWeather.
“Teaming up with GotSoccer is a great fit for our AccuWeather forecasts, as it helps people get the most out of their day by knowing ahead of time what the weather brings. And when severe weather threatens, such as a lightning storm, having a reliable weather forecast synched to each field location is key to keeping people in the U.S. soccer community safe and out of harm’s way.”
Launched in 1996, GotSoccer is the No.1 visited soccer website and leading soccer software solution in the USA, used by over 2000 leagues and tournaments to register over 700,000 teams and more than 6 million players annually. GotSoccer also provides software for some of the world’s biggest professional sports organizations – such as MLS, France’s Ligue 1 and the Brazilian Football Confederation – and also has a strong presence in the grassroots game in Canada, the UK and South Africa.
