Our vision has always been to create the most powerful recruitment tool, adaptable to fit the different needs of any club, at any level. To do this we have to create smarter player recruitment and evolve from the limitations of established networks. Within Acquisition we have added the power of intelligent Discover and Search to unlock the global talent pool of players, this allows you to make informed decisions about any player worldwide. You now have the ability to zero-in to identify your next superstar, based on the characteristics that matter to you and your club.

Discover uses artificial intelligence to assess your squad and learns from your searches to provide you with smart suggestions to assist your recruitment.

Search empowers you to expand your knowledge of players globally, by allowing you to search smarter for the criteria you value and then filter to find the future stars of the future.

Regardless of how you find your player, each new playing investment you make can have major impact on the squad and long-term success of the club, so it makes perfect sense that you would want access to trusted, contextualised data is key to reducing risk and exploiting market inefficiencies. ACQUISITION exists to block out the noise and help boardroom’s to make strategically coherent decisions.

We know key decisions aren’t made from the comfort of your desk alone, so we’ve developed the ACQUISITION  app, giving you access to full functionality, wherever you are on the move.
