Euroleague and Genius Sports are partners since 2014 with the latter serving as the main data collector and distributor for the iGaming industry. Europe’s top basketball competition decided to extend this partnership.
Euroleague confirmed that data from its tournaments will be secured by Genius Sports’ courtside technology and will live feed the sports betting industry. Genius sports monitor 85.000 basketball games a year in over 150 countries.
Through the extended deal Euroleague committed to protect its media rights and remove unauthorized data collectors operating within their stadiums.
Genius Sports Group CCO Jack Davison said: “The extension of our partnership with one of the world’s leading basketball leagues demonstrates our commitment to ensuring security of supply, of the most important content, to our customers.
Our investment in the growth of live basketball betting is dependent on the capture and distribution of fast, accurate and highly reliable data.
Furthermore, Euroleague will enjoy a fair return from betting on their competitions while sportsbook operators and their customers will gain a crucial advantage through the quality of their products.”Follow us on
