San Diego Legion add Lumin Sports to the roster ahead of MLR 2024

MLR Western Conference Champions hoping to go one better with Lumin Sports

Adelaide, Australia, February 15, 2024 – Lumin Sports is set to play an important role in the San Diego Legion’s pursuit of the 2024 Major League Rugby (MLR) Championship.


It comes as the SD Legion rolls out the Australian athlete management software to assist athletic performance and team operations.


Having won last season’s Western Conference but narrowly missing out on the MLR Championship, SD Legion Performance Coach, Ryan Gallop, hopes the team can go one step further.


‘’We’re doing everything we can to make sure we’re the next MLR Championship winning team and that includes working with Lumin Sports,’’ Gallop said.


‘’In Lumin, we now have one software with the performance, injury management and communication tools we need to ensure our program runs smoothly, efficiently and gives our club the best chance of success.’’  


‘’There’s a distinct Australian flavour at the Legion this year given we’ve just brought in Lumin and recruited former Wallaby great Matt Giteau.’’


The SD Legion are the second MLR team to implement the Lumin platform following the New Orleans based NOLA Gold’s adoption last year.


Lumin Sports Chief Executive Officer, Ben Tripodi, said it’s a privilege to be supporting a second team in the MLR.


‘’Having the SD Legion take on our platform is extremely exciting,’’ Tripodi said.


‘’To be growing our footprint in the MLR demonstrates the impact our software has not only on athletic performance and injury management, but also on team communication and operations.’’


‘’We’re looking forward to seeing the Legion get their season underway against the Seawolves next month and assisting them throughout the campaign.’’


Lumin Sports’ deal with the SD Legion follows contracts with both the Volleyball League of America and USA Touch.
