Kairos and York United FC partnership
3 February 2021
Kairos are proud to announce a new multi-year partnership with renowned Canadian Premier League team York United FC.
With an impressive roster of clients that includes Premier League teams, the Scottish FA and a litany of club and international rugby sides, the Belfast-based organization specialize in planning excellence for elite teams. York United FC is their first Canadian professional partner and the collaboration will see them provide the squad and backroom staff with an intuitive, robust, and secure way to manage all internal scheduling and communications.
With an emphasis on improving on-field performance by reducing off-field stresses, Kairos offers a centralized online platform where all matches, sessions, appointments and any other scheduled activity is gathered in one easy-to-access location. Team communications are personalized, ensuring players are more engaged and empowered to manage their individual timetable.
Further strengthening the bond, Kairos has been working alongside another York United FC partner, STATSports Technologies, since 2019.
Angus McNab, CEO/President and GM, says;
“We really want to put our athletes and staff in a position to succeed and the current operating environment means planning is a critical aspect. Kairos provides us with the tools needed to ensure we can communicate effectively in advance and react quickly and efficiently when changes are forced upon us. The nature of our league – with significant cross-country travel – means we need to maximize our time with the players and ensure everyone knows what is expected.
Kairos made so much sense for us as a partner because their development road map includes integration with GPS technology, particularly STATSports, with whom we already have a great partnership. Being able to share this information with players, and our scheduling, in a secure environment and moving away from instant messaging technology, is a great advantage for us as we seek those margin gains to drive us forward.”
Andrew Trimble, Kairos CEO and co-founder, “Partnering with York United FC is really exciting for us as they are our first professional club client in Canada and one of our first in North America. They have huge aspirations, and we’re committed to helping them develop their players and enable them to perform. Speaking to Gus, it is really clear that they want to lead the charge in how they support their athletes and as a former player myself that is great to hear.”
Kairos is focused on game day preparation. They are the world’s most effective platform for simplifying scheduling, streamlining communications, and maximising player engagement in elite sports. They equip teams across the globe, including teams from the EPL, EFL, Premiership Rugby, Pro 14, MLS, and international football teams. To find out more about the platform, get in touch below.
