The Canadian Premier League to Partner with Kinduct

The Canadian Premier League (CPL) is pleased to announce Kinduct — an industry-leading Athlete Management System — as an Official Partner. This partnership — entitled the Injury Surveillance Program — is aimed at limiting the risk of soccer-related injuries in the Canadian Premier League by logging and tracking soccer-related illnesses and injuries on a league-wide scale. Kinduct’s robust and secure platform allows this data to be consolidated into one centralized location, which can then be further shared and analyzed across the league. The partnership was negotiated by Canadian Soccer Business (CSB) on behalf of the CPL and is intended to improve injury-related protocols and prevent future risk of injury.

“We are pleased to have an industry-leader like Kinduct as partner,” said David Clanachan, Commissioner, Canadian Premier League. “Having access to quality data easily can only help our Soccer Operations team continue to provide the best information and data possible to our clubs.”

Additionally, Kinduct assisted in the Canadian Premier League’s 2018 #GotGame Open Trials as a data collection tool, which enabled each of the league’s organizations to compile meaningful performance data to help evaluate cross-Canadian talent.

“We are honoured to be working with the CPL in their inaugural season, as it’s given us an opportunity to learn and grow alongside this exciting league that is pushing the envelope of innovation,” said Jeff Johnson, Kinduct’s Director of Business Development. “From our first discussions with the CPL, it was immediately clear our visions were aligned. The Kinduct system sets the technical backbone for team and athlete support. This framework is also where current and future technology is injected and will hopefully lead to even more unique innovation in the future.”
