NEWS ANNOUNCEMENT:

ECNL INTRODUCES STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY, REVOLUTIONIZING COLLEGE SOCCER RECRUITING AND OPERATIONS EFFICIENCY.

Total Global Sports’ new innovative software and mobile apps for Players, Colleges, Teams and Clubs is powering the advancement.

Glen Allen, VA, July 13, 2016— The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), the top female youth soccer league in the country, has partnered with Total Global Sports (TGS), an innovator in online sports management tools, to create a cutting edge online platform for league and competition management and to provide ECNL players a seamless connection to college coaches across the country.

The new platform will provide an elegant and intuitive website for real-time league and event management, providing faster and better information, operations and capability for the league and its member clubs.  In addition, ECNL players will have a new ability to optimize their recruiting profile visibility and impact to college coaches in the embedded college software system.

In the coming weeks, member clubs and ECNL players will be receiving more information from TGS to learn more about the system, how to best use it and getting set up. Many teams and players already have TGS accounts from playing in other TGS events, if this is the case your logins will remain the same. Webinars for club directors, registrars, club recruiting representatives and team managers will be held and we highly encourage you to sign up and participate as we transition to this new platform.

“The ECNL mission to constantly raise standards not only includes player and coaching development, it also includes raising standards in league operations and efficiency,” said Jen Woodie, ECNL Commissioner. “The aspiration for almost every ECNL player is to play soccer at the collegiate level, and this new tool will help make that an even smoother process for our players while making our league presentation even more professional.”

`”When the opportunity to work with the top female youth soccer league came about, we felt that our product would be the perfect fit. Our integrated college recruitment and league management system, combined with the unmatched quality of the ECNL, makes a totally unique partnership that will serve players better than ever.” said Steve Patterson, Total Global Sports Chief Executive Officer.

The ECNL will launch this new platform on August 1, 2016.  Educational webinars will be scheduled to help all clubs easily integrate this new platform into their operations and processes.

All ECNL players receive a basic ECNL branded TOTALplayer profile. Player profiles are on the same platform with the TGS College software and mobile app used everyday by college coaches for in-office and field-side scouting efforts at all ECNL events. Colleges access ECNL player profiles 24/7, linked to all ECNL league games and showcase events, now run on the TGS integrated software platform. Players can opt to upgrade to a more robust profile and share more information, videos, evaluations, etc. plus research colleges and email colleges directly from their account for even greater visibility with college coaches.
