FIBA, the world governing body of basketball, and Genius Sports, a global leader in sports data, technology and integrity services, have announced a long-term renewal of their landmark partnership.
Expanding a partnership that has existed since 2004, FIBA and Genius Sports will continue to work closely together improving professional basketball’s data and digital infrastructures, providing support to over 200 leagues and federations worldwide.
This partnership will further support the adoption of essential solutions such as FIBA Organizer, a digital competition management tool, and FIBA LiveStats, the foremost play-by-play data collection system, operated at courtside across more than 85,000 games annually around the world.
“We are very pleased to continue this long-term and unique relationship with Genius Sports. We have been working together for more than 15 years to develop and offer state-of-the-art digital tools for national federations and leagues. Thanks to this renewal, we will continue the joint efforts in creating innovative tools and make sure that our sport is even more attractive to fans around the world,” said FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis.
“This renewal is as much about the future as our achievements to date, and we’re excited to introduce a number of cutting-edge innovations later this year, driving the next stage of digital transformation and data analytics for leagues and federations at all levels of basketball,” added Mark Locke, CEO of Genius Sports Group.Follow us on
