Thanks to PSD, staff members are now truly working side by side
The Belgian Football Association has been working with ProSoccerData since 2014. Through the system, several operations are being centralised like automated call-up invitations, international scouting tasks, communication with clubs and elite sports schools and many more.
Herman De Landtsheer, video-analyst and multimedia manager of the Belgian FA explains: “ProSoccerData has been very helpful to streamline the communication process. By connecting the views of all staff members, we now truly work side by side.” The next challenge for the Belgian FA is to better align communications with the clubs of their internationals. Very often when a player leaves the club for international obligations, the club has very little information about their players’ physical and medical status. Through PSD the FA can share basic data and information so a club can follow-up on their players’ status while they’re away. “It’s only a first step, but the goal is to improve communication with the clubs that are contributing to our national teams”
