Interactive Cards – Document Injuries, Red & Yellow Cards on the Field
Powerful Technology Gives You Time to Focus on the Game
Affinity Sports has harnessed the power of technology and replaced printed player cards with highly secure, digital player cards that are accessible on any smart phone or mobile device. This groundbreaking solution brings real-time player eligibility and compliance to the fields of youth and adult sports.
Now, for the first time, Affinity’s real time player eligibility digital player cards will allow player eligibility to be checked on a game by game basis and coaches, referees, tournament directors and team managers will no longer have to be concerned with fraudulent player cards or have a situation where a team that is ready to play has to forfeit a game because the printed cards were not available.
The Affinity Sports mobile application can be securely logged in from anywhere with internet access and provides role-based access. When a referee logs in to Affinity’s mobile application before a soccer match, he or she sees the full set of both teams’ player and coach cards and can enter information on injury updates and yellow and red cards right into Affinity’s mobile application. When a team manager logs in, he or she can only see their team information and can send a message to all the players instantly about a change of field location or what restaurant to meet at after the game.
Affinity Sports is delivering the first real-time digital player eligibility and rule compliance to US sports fields to protect our kids, our teams, leagues and sports associations.

Maybe They Could Have Been Champions — if they had their player cards…
“Our printed player cards were stolen out of my car and my son’s San Diego Soccer Club team had to forfeit their soccer match in US Youth Soccer’s Cal South State Cup,” says Karen Kusunoki, a former soccer team manager from Southern California. “The boys were devastated. We were hundreds of miles away from home. Without the required printed player cards, our team was not allowed to continue in the competition. I am still upset. Who knows – our team could have been State Champions.”
With Affinity Sports’ Interactive Digital Cards, this heartbreak would have been avoided. Today, with the help of Affinity Sports, teams no longer have to forfeit games because of missing, lost or stolen printed player cards.
“Being responsible for those player cards is a huge responsibility and anything can happen to them or to the person carrying them. If the information is accessible online, there won’t be any more problems with lost, stolen, or forgotten cards,” says Kusunoki. “Relying on printed paper cards is not fair to the kids. We all use our phones to check in at the airport for a flight. Don’t our kids deserve the same option?”
“Affinity Sports is focused on growing the game of soccer in the USA and making technology relevant to the youth sports market,” said Mark Skeen, CEO of Affinity Sports, a San Diego based firm specializing in solutions for sports organizations. “We want to bring usable technology to playing fields all across the country – from Massachusetts to California. That’s why we launched Interactive Digital Cards – to keep our kids safer and happier,” says Skeen.
