NBC Sports Next and USA Volleyball, the National Governing Body for the sport of volleyball in the U.S. with more than 435,000 registered members, announced today a multi-year extension to their long-term technology partnership.
USA Volleyball will exclusively use Advanced Event Systems (AES), one of the product solutions offered by NBC Sports Next within its SportsEngine HQ technology platform, to support registration, management, and scheduling for the entire USA Volleyball indoor tournament calendar. NBC Sports Next will utilize AES to create, design and maintain the “Official Event Management Platform of USA Volleyball.”
“USA Volleyball is excited to be extending our long-standing relationship with AES,” said Jamie Davis, President and CEO of USA Volleyball. “As the largest team participatory sport for girls and one of the fastest growing sports for boys, it is essential that our event management platform seamlessly handles the large volume of participants who attend our events. AES continues to innovate its platform, which will further enhance the user experience for years to come.”
“We’re extremely proud to have served USA Volleyball as a technology partner for more than 15 years,” said Brett MacKinnon, SVP & General Manager, Youth & Recreational Sports, NBC Sports Next. “The continuation of our relationship is a testament to the quality and capability of SportsEngine’s AES software platform to ensure a seamless experience for the tournament teams and families supporting one of the fastest-growing youth sports in the U.S. during the moments that matter most.”
AES makes it easy to initiate, schedule and host volleyball tournaments of all types and sizes, providing an equally intuitive online registration experience for administrators and athletes. AES technology has been used to manage more than 20,000 volleyball events since it was acquired by SportsEngine in 2015.
