The partnership will cover the distribution of detailed match data to the global partners across media, broadcasting, fantasy sports and betting operators.

“Millions of English and Scottish football fans and bettors have enjoyed trusted media, broadcast, fantasy and betting experiences powered by Stats Perform’s opta data for the past seven years. We are honoured that our investment in collecting and distributing the fastest, most accurate detailed event data with the utmost professionalism has again been recognised by Football Dataco, and are excited to use our trusted data as the foundation to drive even deeper connections to some of the world’s greatest teams and players, through our FDC Data Labs partnership,” Alex Rice, Chief Rights Officer of Stats Perform, said.

“Extending our partnership with Stats Perform was an obvious choice.

Stats Perform will build on these strong foundations and continue to drive innovation through our FDC Labs partnership, using data to tell new stories for fans who have an appetite for greater insight into the beautiful game,” Adrian Ford, General Manager of Football DataCo, said.
