Tonight, Major League Soccer's All-Star Game will be the world's first "Smart Game," featuring the on-field debut of the adidas miCoach Elite System. The new technology will provide both coaching staffs with real-time performance metrics, including intensity of play, speed, distance covered and acceleration. miCoach Elite System will be integrated league-wide in MLS starting in 2013.
During tonight’s match, fans and media can follow along with miCoach Elite System stats via adidas Soccer’s Facebook Page and on Twitter @adidasUS and hash tag #smartsoccer. Below are a few sample screenshots of what tonight’s Facebook experience will look like using sample data.
The MLS All-Star Game airs tonight at 8:30 p.m. EST on ESPN2.
