About Us

GameStrat was founded in 2015 by Tunch Akkaya and Elijah Wu. Tunch, while playing football at the University of Ottawa, saw a need where his very own head coach wanted the ability to have in game video replay to be able to make better in-game adjustments. Originally building something for their very own team to gain a competitive advantage, GameStrat quickly grew in popularity and has now become the market leader when it comes to instant replay solutions for coaching needs. GameStrat’s expertise has also extended beyond football, providing live to bench replay and coding solutions for other sports such as hockey, lacrosse and basketball. At GameStrat, our team always puts the customer first, well knowing and understanding the needs and stresses that coaches go through every single day.
