Specialists in bringing technology to the soccer fields across the USA, Affinity Sports dramatically reduces the time and money needed to run soccer leagues and clubs and continues to exceed the expectations of satisfied customers, expanding its customer base with next-generation solutions that deliver better performance, security and innovation.
"At Affinity Sports, we know the challenges of managing large sports organizations with hundreds of thousands of registrations. We provide complete management solutions with the best business technology on the market for all size sports organizations," said Mark Skeen, CEO of Affinity Sports, a rapidly growing San Diego company that has developed the premier association compliance platform with integrated online registration and is currently serving the needs of 27 State Associations and their more than 2 million players, coaches, volunteers and staff members.
"We welcome Florida State Soccer Association — the official governing body representing U.S. Soccer in the State of Florida for over 40 years — to Affinity Sports. Their organization is dedicated to the best interests of the sport and we are excited our partnership will bring innovative, ground-breaking technology to Florida's soccer players," said Skeen.
"Affinity Sports offers Florida the most complete solution for registering our players. Affinity Sports' comprehensive online registration and sports management software is the best on the market and we are thrilled to be working with their talented staff," said Jennifer Weston, Executive Director of Florida State Soccer Association.
"Affinity Sports' leading technology will improve our ability to work with our players, coaches and referees and allow us to focus on growing the game of soccer in Florida," said Weston.

"We were so blown away with what Affinity Sports offers," said Rachel Bolick, Executive Director of South Carolina Youth Soccer. "South Carolina is behind the curve on technology.
