Cleveland FC Excited to work with Trace to Deliver Developmental Filming Platform

CLEVELAND, OHIO + AUSTIN, TX (February 05, 2021) – FC Evolution West (formerly Cleveland Futbol Club – CFC) and Trace are excited to announce a partnership to provide CFC teams with Trace’s complete game film system. Cleveland FC will be outfitting a select number of their competitive teams with Trace equipment for the 2021-22 season. Teams will use Trace year-round for scrimmages, games, friendlies, and tournaments, and have access to all Trace features, including Trace iD and Trace Workshops.

“As the game continues to change and evolve both on and off the field, it’s imperative to stay ahead of the competition. Technology is now a key piece for player development and offering the highest level of support possible to our players is now a reality.”

– David Sidloski, Elite Girls Director of Cleveland FC/FC Evolution

“We are extremely excited as a club to announce our partnership with Trace,” says Dave Sidloski, Elite Girls Director of Cleveland FC/FC Evolution. “As the game continues to change and evolve both on and off the field, it’s imperative to stay ahead of the competition. Technology is now a key piece for player development and offering the highest level of support possible to our players is now a reality. Analysis that begins at the individual player level is the starting point towards overall team success. Trace provides our players and coaches with the exact data and film review that will serve to provide feedback that they have never seen before. In addition, our players now have ‘instant exposure’ with hundreds of college coaches and the anxiety of recruiting in the present day just became much easier. FC Evolution/Cleveland FC is definitely prepared for the future!”

With Trace, coaching staff and players save time while also creating a professional culture of accountability and improvement through Trace’s player-centric platform.

One of the questions in 2021 for our high school age groups was, ‘How do we adapt to the recruiting process amid Covid?

[Trace]’s all-in-one approach is just what coaches, like myself, have been looking for to help our players reach the next level.

– Vladimir Godosev, Coach at Cleveland FC

“As coaches, we are always trying to stay ahead of changing times. This past year, COVID has forced us to adapt quickly,” says Vladimir Godosev, Coach at Cleveland FC. “We’ve had to find ways to hold sessions that maintain safety and consistency with training. One of the questions in 2021 for our high school age groups was, ‘How do we adapt to the recruiting process amid Covid?’ We searched for the perfect tool and found the Trace Soccer Film. The product’s all-in-one approach is just what coaches, like myself, have been looking for to help our players reach the next level. I’m excited about the future and what this partnership with Trace will bring.”
