We’re excited to announce that Firld has earned a spot on the prestigious list of Top Influential eSports Startups in New York by USVenture.
As the esports industry continues to thrive, we are proud to be among the pioneers driving innovation and transformation in this thriving sector.
In the heart of New York City, a thriving hub for sports startups, Firld is making significant progress to provide cutting-edge solutions and create connections within the community. Recently, as we’ve ventured into the esports market for sports management, winning this recognition is a testament to our dedication and potential in this exciting new field.
At Firld, we’re not just following the esports wave; we’re shaping its future. We’re exploring various segments of the sports market, including sports management, analytics, and marketing. Our goal is to contribute to the industry’s overall development and growth.
For the first time in the USA National Women’s Soccer League, EA Sports revealed the FIFA 23 ratings for all 12 teams, and the top 5 players are:
• Alex Morgan – 90 • Debinha – 88 • Rosemary Lavelle – 87 • Sophia Smith – 87 • Mallory Swanson – 87
These rankings align with Firld estimations of player market values. In November 2022, a New York-based startup released estimations of market values for professional women’s soccer players, and the top 5 players by market value are:
• Mallory Swanson – 255 (Th. EUR) • Alex Morgan – 224 • Sophia Smith – 212 • Rosemary Lavelle – 190 • Jordyn Huitema – 171
While the FIFA rankings and Firld market value estimations use different approaches, it’s hard to ignore the striking similarities between the two. This is a testament to the accuracy and effectiveness of the Firld model.
Firld has recently introduced a beta version of their new project in Olympic wrestling called WreStats. This product showcases the power of data and video analytics in the sport of wrestling and provides athletes with valuable insights to take their skills to the next level. WreStats is just a small taste of what Firld’s main product in data and video analytics can do.

The team behind Firld believes that every athlete deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential.
