Even athletes need technology to get ahead. New York City Football Club captain Alex Ring and starting defender Maxime Chanot told Cheddar technological innovations give them an advantage when training. "We carry GPS units in games and practice so they can monitor our loads, and everything you get from tactical analysis to readings ... gives you a good lookout on your game," Ring told Cheddar. The league is gearing up for its second annual 24-hour soccer game, in partnership with Rockefeller Center and presented by Degree Deodorant, on March 8, in anticipation of the Club’s 2019 home opener later that weekend.
