Market leader provides technical staff invaluable video and statistical analysis


Major League Soccer’s Colorado Rapids announced today that they have renewed their association with Match Analysis with a deal that will see the respected California based firm once again delivering video and technical analysis tools and data for their technical staff.

Rapids Head Coach Oscar Pareja and his coaching staff will use the market leading Match Analysis product portfolio. Mambo Studio 5 provides complete touch-by-touch video editing and analysis.  Coaches and players will have immediate online access to detailed individual analytics, upcoming opponent analysis, and complete touch-by-touch player video through Tango Online. The company’s proprietary Tango ToGo system also enables coaches to instantly send video directly to players.

"Match Analysis provides the best set of tools in the market and consistently delivers a fantastic service," said Rapids Technical Director Paul Bravo. "Having previously used them for our video and analysis data, we can now say with confidence that their products and service are the best available. It soon became obvious to us that a major and vital part of our analysis process was being unfulfilled by a competitive system. We are delighted to be returning to Match Analysis and once again utilizing their cutting edge products to provide our coaching and playing staff with the tools to give us a competitive advantage".

"We have established a strong reputation in North America not just for delivering the best suite of video and analytical tools, but for supporting our clients, one-on-one, every single day," said Match Analysis President Mark Brunkhart. "It's great news that the Rapids have chosen to use our services once again and proves the tools we provide are acknowledged as a must have for technology focused clubs looking to be leaders in the sports analysis field."
