Genius Sports Limited, the official data, technology and broadcast partner that powers the ecosystem connecting sports and media, has agreed a long-term official data, streaming and integrity partnership with the Chinese Taipei Football Association (CTFA), the data rights holder of Taiwan football.
This partnership includes the CTFA’s premier competitions including the Taiwan Football Premier League (TFPL), Taiwan Mulan Football League (TMFL) and Taiwan Football League 2nd Division.
Genius Sports will provide the CTFA with its world-leading sports data insights and technology to enhance fan experiences and assist the CTFA in commercialising its sports data and promoting streaming content to the world.
