QPR agree TOCA partnership

Queens Park Rangers Football Club are pleased to announce a training partnership with the football technology company, TOCA Football Inc.

TOCA was founded in 2012 by former US international, Eddie Lewis, who spent eight years playing in England for Fulham, Preston North End, Leeds United and Derby County.

After finishing his 15-year professional career, Lewis spent the next four years developing a technology platform for elite football training.

Since the official public release of the TOCA Training product in December 2016, it has quickly become a leading supplementary training system in the United States.

TOCA Training employs a smart phone controlled ball machine, the TOCA Touch Trainer, which precisely delivers custom-designed training balls at specified speeds, locations, and trajectories for an accelerated training experience.

A player can receive more than 10-games’ worth of focused touches in an hour. TOCA Training is directed by the TOCA App, which records and displays personalised training data for each user.

TOCA Training has been shown to significantly accelerate technical development and speed safer injury rehabilitation.

QPR will immediately begin to integrate TOCA into its Academy training programs and commercial activities.

QPR’s Technical Director, Chris Ramsey, told www.qpr.co.uk: “We’re really looking forward to using the TOCA product in the Academy.

“We’ve trialed the product and we’ve been pleased with what we’ve seen so far, so it’s an exciting option for us to use with the players going forward.”

Eddie Lewis, Founder and President of TOCA Football Inc, added: “We are excited to bring TOCA to the UK and are looking forward to working with QPR’s experienced training staff and strong tradition of developing talent.”
