Multi-Year Agreement Makes Sportradar the Exclusive Distributor of Official League Data to Global Media and Gaming Markets

The National Football League (NFL) and Sportradar, the world’s leading provider of sports data and content, today announced an expansion of their existing partnership, which will license the distribution of NFL official league data and content to more fans around the world.

Since 2015, Sportradar has been the NFL’s exclusive distributor of official play- by-play statistics, as well as the NFL’s proprietary Next Gen Stats (NGS) player tracking data to media outlets.  The original partnership included the creation of Sportradar’s cutting-edge research platform, Radar360, which is used by the NFL, its member clubs, and media outlets.  These aspects of the partnership will continue in the new agreement.

The renewal significantly expands upon the existing partnership, including exclusive distribution of real-time official play-by-play data and NGS data to sports betting operators in the U.S. and internationally where sports betting is legal and regulated.  Official licensed data will improve the speed and accuracy of NFL data and enhance protections for consumers.  In addition, Sportradar will now have the right to distribute live audio-visual (AV) game feeds to sportsbooks in select international markets.

The NFL will also use Sportradar’s comprehensive and award-winning integrity services to monitor betting across all NFL games (preseason, regular season, and postseason). The NFL and its clubs will also have access to Sportradar’s integrity education workshops and products to ensure the continuation of the NFL’s high standard for integrity.

“Sportradar has been an excellent partner the last four years and has provided the league, our teams, and media marketplace with innovative data products,” said Hans Schroeder, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, NFL Media. “We look forward to working with Sportradar to deliver fast, accurate official league data that will innovate and improve experiences for our fans across platforms.”

“We are thrilled to become NFL’s exclusive data distribution partner, undoubtedly one of the most important partnerships in Sportradar’s history. We are confident we will maximize our strong partnership with the NFL and deliver ground-breaking products across the gaming, fantasy and the media worlds,” said Carsten Koerl, Chief Executive Office of Sportradar. “As the unequivocal global leader in sports data, we are ideally positioned to support the NFL in providing innovative products to enhance the way fans experience the game and help maintain the continued integrity of the NFL competition.”

Nevada gambling regulators have filed a complaint against Steve Wynn, saying that the casino magnate’s alleged sexual misconduct has damaged the industry’s reputation in the state. The complaint lists multiple instances of sexual misconduct allegations that have been lodged against Wynn since January 2018.

The 23-page complaint, filed to the Nevada Gaming Commission, says Wynn is “unsuitable to be associated with a gaming enterprise or the gaming industry as a whole.” Wynn has denied all misconduct allegations against him.

The move follows a $20 million fine the commission levied on Wynn’s former company in February to settle allegations that former executives failed to investigate claims of sexual misconduct against Wynn by female employees. Gambling regulators in Massachusetts levied a $35 million fine on the company in April but allowed it to keep a casino license for a Boston-area resort.

An investigation by the Nevada gaming control board detailed allegations that Wynn paid hush money to multiple women who claimed he had pressured them into nonconsensual sexual relationships.

Senator Raymond Lesniak and Jamaal Lesane set to join stellar line-up

Two new speakers are to share their knowledge with delegates at next month’s Sports Betting USA conference in New York after being added to the roster.

Former New Jersey Senator Ray Lesniak and Jamaal Lesane, Senior Vice President, Legal and Business Affairs at The Madison Square Garden Company, will take to the stage on the second day the Metropolitan West.

Senator Lesniak, who was the instigator and driving force behind the legal battle that led to the repeal of PASPA, will deliver the keynote address.

Lesane is at the vanguard of venue owners looking to optimise in-stadia facilities for sports fans and will join the panel discussing the monetisation of the game day experience.

Sports Betting USA, which takes place 5-6 November and follows a one-day investor summit, will examine the opportunities and challenges of the wagering industry that has been estimated to be worth up to $150 Billion.

Event director Rory Credland believes the show, now in its third year, has a stronger line-up than ever and has become a must attend event for those with a stake in the growing market.

He added: “We’re delighted to welcome another two great speakers to Sports Betting USA and are confident they will have a lot to contribute to the exchange of knowledge.

“Senator Lesniak in particular needs no introduction and is one of the main reasons we are all gathering in New York. It will be fascinating to hear his take on the way other states can follow the lead of New Jersey in the coming months.”

Among the other highlights of this year’s show will be a presentation by New York Senator Joseph Addabbo Jr, who will share his state’s vision for sports betting as they look to include its legalisation in the 20/21 budget.

They will be joined by senior executives from leading operators, suppliers and media companies, including William Hill USA, Penn National Gaming and Sportradar, as well as representatives of sporting organisations including the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, MLS, PGA Tour, and NASCAR.
