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 and coaching decision. 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 and training needs. GameStrat's expertise and technology has extended beyond football, working with hockey and lacrosse teams as well as with various organizations within defense and law enforcement training environments.
