Sportec Solutions, a Munich-based sports technology company, has established its U.S. headquarters in Arlington. Sportec Solutions develops next-gen solutions in the fields of match data and officiating technology. They maintain a long-term agreement with Major League Soccer (MLS) as the official provider for live data and video assistant referee services.

The Arlington Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) approved a $1 million performance grant to Sportec Solutions for its new headquarters in north Arlington, which will create 17 new jobs with an average salary of $55,000 annually.

“We are so excited to support innovative sports technology moving into Arlington. We’re eager to see how Sportec Solutions will utilize its technology to explore relationships with other local football clubs and beyond,” said Marty Wieder, executive director of the Arlington Economic Development Corporation. 

Sportec Solutions has been reporting soccer statistics since 1988 and began working with MLS last year. The new headquarters will include state-of-the-art technology with a full range of services addressing match data, including video refereeing, and live commentary tools, to name a few.

“We are the center of all the data for the whole sport of soccer, so in that sense we are core to the development of the MLS in the U.S.,” said Christian Holzer, managing director at Sportec Solutions. “All of that will happen at our Arlington operations center.” 

The decision to establish a home base in Arlington was strategic in terms of the distance between coasts and the time zone for international operations, as well as the City’s host of sports franchises, explained Stefan Schuster, chairman of the supervisory board at Sportec Solutions. 

“Arlington was the perfect location with the perfect infrastructure for our company,” said Schuster. “The City and the AEDC were extremely supportive and went to great lengths to help us throughout the process. It’s the ideal situation for our growth.”
