Major League Soccer Players Association Partners with Game Plan

Game Plan and the Major League Soccer Players Association (MLSPA) are excited to announce a partnership that aims to best prepare and develop Major League Soccer (MLS) players for their professional careers and life after soccer.

Within the partnership, the MLSPA will utilize the Game Plan platform along with its proprietary and athlete-specific personality assessments. Created with a Georgia Tech PhD team, these assessments are designed to help players understand how their identities as professional athletes can translate into interests and careers off the field.

“Our new partnership with Game Plan directly aligns with our mission at the MLSPA to establish a supportive community for players that positively impacts their lives and futures. We are excited to be able to equip players with tools to identify their personal strengths so that they can use them to their advantage both on and off the field.”
MLSPA Player Programs Director, Connor Ford

As part of the partnership, Game Plan staff will also certify MLPSA team members in the effective facilitation of post-assessment follow-up conversations based on the individual result of each player.

“This partnership is a great opportunity for Game Plan to support professional soccer players across the country”, says Christian Kuehne, EVP of Athletic Organizations at Game Plan. “Our personality assessments are heavily used across the collegiate and professional sports space and serve as a starting point for exploratory conversations that MLSPA staff members will have with their players. Ultimately, the goal of these assessments is to provide athletes with the resources that are uniquely tailored to them and their personality, and I know the MLSPA shares this mission and will execute it in a unique way for their athletes.”

Game Plan is excited to launch this partnership with the MLSPA and can’t wait to see the impact it has on the MLS players going forward.
