We’re excited to finally announce that Orlando City SC are the latest club to sign up to the suite of services on offer from Analytics FC’s Signature Service.
Having entered Major League Soccer in 2015, Orlando City SC are a club on the rise and are looking to consolidate their position after finishing sixth in the Eastern Conference and securing qualification to the postseason playoffs.
Head coach Oscar Pareja has impressed since arriving from FC Dallas in 2020. With the Colombian in charge for two seasons, Orlando have made the MLS Cup Playoffs both times, having never participated in them before.
By signing up with Analytics FC, Orlando will look to leverage the company’s proprietary data models and tap into its experienced insights team to help continue this impressive rise up the ranks in MLS.
Orlando’s Assistant GM and Director of Scouting, Ricardo Moreira, was positive when he spoke about the partnership: “As always, we are working towards putting Orlando City as a powerhouse in global standards, constantly looking for ways to build and progress.”
“The opportunity to work with a company like Analytics FC, is something we couldn’t turn down. The experience they have advising top players like Kevin de Bruyne and Héctor Bellerín with data stood out in particular. Using Analytics FC to support our football operations processes, especially implementing their AI-powered prediction models and financial algorithms, will give us a critical edge and really support our staff with decision making.”
“The opportunity to work with the Orlando City SC front office is an exciting one for us,” said Analytics FC’s CEO and Founder, Jeremy Steele. “Luiz Muzzi, Ricardo Moreira and their team have done a great job since arriving in Orlando so we’re excited to add our expertise into the mix and help the club achieve their goals. Analytics FC has been operating in the US for some time and there is a general positivity towards the use of data within the US sports scene.”
“We’re really pleased to see that continuing to grow and with strategic insight services such as Signature we are really well placed to provide the support and advice to forward-thinking and well-run clubs, like Orlando City SC, looking to use data to get a competitive edge”.
