Ontario Soccer announced today that it has entered a new multi-year partnership agreement with SportsEngine, part of NBC Sports Next, as its Official Technology Partner.

SportsEngine has served as Ontario Soccer’s Official Technology Partner since 2015 and developed Ontario Soccer’s official registration system, the Ontario Soccer Club and Academy Registry (OSCAR) in 2019. The system helps Districts, Clubs, and Academies, within Ontario Soccer, streamline the process of data submission, approvals and allow real-time access, to the critical data, affiliated clubs and leagues need to run their organizations more efficiently.

“This renewed agreement will ensure continued refinement of the existing products we use with SportsEngine, as well as offer a whole new suite of soccer management technology solutions for soccer in Ontario,” said Johnny Misley, Ontario Soccer Chief Executive Officer. “With SportsEngine, we are building a platform that will not only connect our membership at all levels, through an ecosystem model, it will bring together match officials, coaches and others within one fully integrated solution.”

The partnership will include a series of technical requirements designed to provide enhancements to the member management capabilities. Additionally, the agreement provides benefits and cost savings to the Ontario Soccer Districts, Clubs and Academies that currently use the SportsEngine Registration solutions along with any new organizations that decide to join in the seasons ahead.

"We are honored to continue our technology partnership with Ontario Soccer," said John Weinerth, Vice-President of Sport & Enterprise, NBC Sports Next. "Working together alongside Ontario Soccer, we’ve continued to innovate and provide functionality that serves their members. At the core, we are dedicated to serving Ontario Soccer by providing best-in-class technical resources and solutions that help them grow the sport."

The announcement today concludes a 16-month comprehensive market and vendor review process. It was completed by Request for Information and Request for Proposal Review Committees, which were appointed by membership District Associations and made up of information technology experts. 

“Ontario Soccer is very grateful to the District appointed technology experts who assisted us with the design, review and final recommendation of SportsEngine as our technology partner,” said Peter Augruso, President/Chair, Board of Directors, Ontario Soccer. “We also thank all technology vendors who applied and we were pleased to see the quality of applications from Canada, US and even internationally.”
