21st February 2018: The EHF is delighted to be supporting the launch of Scorrd, where hockey connects
Two young entrepreneurs officially launch “Scorrd”, a social platform dedicated to field hockey. The platform contributes to building a hockey community, by enabling hockey players, coaches and clubs to connect with each other on a worldwide level.
Today, Sébastien Commeyne (28) and Oriol Peremiquel (30) are launching Scorrd, a brand new platform in the world of field hockey that will help build a worldwide community dedicated to field hockey. Together with platform partner Omakase, a brand new digital platform was built. Open to players as well as to coaches and clubs, both on a professional and recreational level, Scorrd will allow users to create a profile by filling in their personal hockey data such as club history, achievements, references, videos, images, field position, club location and much more. Members can connect with each other and discover peers in their community. Moreover, a filter will allow members to search by age, gender, skills, category, nationality and more, to open up new opportunities.[MOU1]
“Both passionate hockey players, we encountered a lack of transparency and difficulties to find relevant information about hockey. As hockey is growing at an impressive pace, we want to help players and coaches to get in touch with clubs. Moreover, we are convinced that building one community where all hockey people can connect easily, can promote the sport and open up the hockey market worldwide”, says Oriol Peremiquel, Co-founder of Scorrd.
A multipurpose platform
Scorrd is a combination of a social network, a transfer market place and a news feed for field hockey. The platform can be used by either players, who are looking for a new club or to play abroad, or by coaches in search of their next challenge or clubs looking to strengthen their line up for the upcoming season. The new platform will offer many more possibilities. It’s a way to get to know each other and stay connected and informed about the world of hockey. Integrating hockey brands, federations and events, such as camps and tournaments will make Scorrd a reference for the worldwide hockey community.
“The EHF is impressed by the vision Scorrd, and its founders has of connecting hockey players and clubs. It is a platform that will strengthen ties within the Hockey community and assist both players and clubs connect in an open and transparent fashion. Club Hockey is at the heart of European hockey so it’s a natural fit for EHF to be supportive of this initiative.” says Angus Kirkland, Director General of EHF
