First event to kick off with legendary sports entrepreneur and investor Ted Leonsis; moderated by Sportico’s Eben Novy-Williams

Sportradar, the global provider of sports betting and sports entertainment products and services, today announced the launch of Sportradar Connect, its new multi-faceted in-house curated event series which will provide exclusive insight, analysis and ideas on the business of sport, technology and innovation.

Sportradar Connect will feature conversations with a range of prominent thought leaders and executives organized by Sportradar, while also utilized as a platform for bespoke sessions designed for specific customer and partner groups throughout 2021.

The first leadership session will be a digital event on February 23, 2021, featuring Ted Leonsis, the founder, chairman, principal partner and CEO of Monumental Sports & Entertainment in Washington, D.C. (which owns the NHL’s Capitals, NBA’s Wizards and WNBA’s Mystics and Capital One Arena) and co-founder and partner of Revolution Growth, an investor in Sportradar.

Sportradar Global CEO Carsten Koerl will introduce Leonsis, and the event will be moderated by Sportico business reporter Eben Novy-Williams.

Leonsis will discuss the impact the global pandemic has had on the sports industry and larger sports ecosystem, sharing his unique perspective on the way forward and how sports enterprises and sports tech start-ups are utilizing technology and unique fan experiences to power their recovery and to propel growth

Over the course of the session, Leonsis will cover the following:

  • The road to recovery– there are challenges ahead in 2021, but the accelerated adoption of diverse fan experiences in streaming/OTT, sports betting and esports gives cause for optimism
  • Engaging Generation Z– their complex digital and entertainment consumption habits create unique opportunities for developing the next generation of sports fans
  • Fan experience– as sports and technology continue to converge, fans today enjoy more content and access to players, more data and analytics, and more visually compelling news from the athletes and sports they love – which provides sports enterprises multiple platforms on which to display creativity and innovation
  • Esports– the pandemic expedited the growth of esports and now professional sports leagues, clubs and players are using it to connect with younger and more global fans, creating major commercial opportunities

 

“At Sportradar, we set the industry agenda by continuously pushing the boundaries of the work we do. Sportradar Connect is an opportunity to highlight the key technology and innovation trends to partners and the wider industry at large, while stimulating conversation and debate,” said Koerl. “We’re excited to welcome Ted as our first guest speaker. He is one of the pre-eminent business brains at the intersection of sports and innovation and it is an honor for Sportradar to have him launching our new event series.”

Sportradar Connect will be launching several events (first digitally due to current restrictions and then eventually in-person) in 2021. Attendance will be invite-only. Register your interest by clicking https://sportradar.com/connect/

Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Winbet has launched Spotlight Sports Group sports betting editorial across their site. The agreement comes off the back of Spotlight Sports Group’s deal with Sportal365.

Winbet recently launched Winbet.it in Italy and this venture into a new territory prompted Winbet to draft the expertise of Spotlight Sports Group to supply a localised expert solution at scale. Spotlight Sports Group will provide their editorial directly into Sportal365s CMS on behalf of Winbet.

Breaking into the new territory has been made easier with Winbet utilising the group’s network of over 250 localised journalists knowledgeable in all key sports. The group delivers 15 pieces a day covering content with native speakers with knowledge of the key sporting events. Basing the content around the pivotal events in the Italian sports calendar drives engagement and enriches Winbet’s customer experience.

The editorial ensures customers are informed with high-quality long-form pieces. The ability to deliver this at such a scale and at speed is a key strength of Spotlight Sports Group as they fully manage Winbets editorial and deliver on a daily basis.

Discussing the agreement, Spotlight Sports Group, Account Director Daniel Smith said:

‘We’re delighted to see the agreement with Sportal365 has led to Winbet being able to utilise our services. We have a huge network of localised journalists who produce brilliant content in over 70 languages and our betting editorial really does take customers above and beyond what a regular sportsbook offers. We’re excited to be working with Winbet and we believe our editorial content can create a distinctive sports betting experience for their customers.’

Echoing Smith’s words Cvetomir Krumov, Head of Operations at Winbet said:

‘’Spotlight Sports Group has shown their capability to drive engagement through their expert editorial. Their difference and the reason we decided to work with them was down to their unique betting angle in all of their editorial. On top of this the fact that the content can be localised to our audience is a huge advantage and we’re excited to off an enhanced experience to our customers.’’
