Leaders in fantasy-sports data and customised sports-data visualisation partner to elevate the action for fans and bettors
The fantasy-sports fan experience is poised to reach a new level with the announcement that two of the fastest growing players in the field of sports data are joining forces.
Fantasy sports data provider FTN Network has partnered with Betegy, the premier independent provider of personalised sports data and gaming visualisation, to provide an all-encompassing experience for fantasy sports fans and sports bettors.
Among the two companies’ inaugural collaborations is the FTN show “Betting with Benny and Tino.”
“Our partnership with Betegy allows us to leverage the latest technology for our media platform and to allow consumers of betting-oriented and fantasy content to have a unique, one-of-kind experience,” said Eliot Crist, FTN Networks chief operating officer.
“This important partnership with the outstanding team at FTN represents a key building block in our ongoing development of the definitive bridge between raw data and sports viewers, gaming enthusiasts and bettors.” Said Alex Kornilov, CEO of Betegy.
“Bringing data to life is essential to engaging fans fully, as more and more providers across sports and games – and across screens – are realising. With this FTN alliance, Betegy’s presence encompasses traditional sports like American and European football and basketball, traditional gaming such as cards, and emerging categories such as Esports and, now, fantasy sports.”
The global fantasy sports market is projected to grow from $20.36 billion in 2020 to $22.31 billion in 2021 for a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.5%, per a September 2021 report from Research & Markets.
The alliance follows important commercial agreements signed by Betegy, most recently including ESTV, PokerGO, Germany’s Tipico, as well as Parimatch, Bwin and Coingaming.io, as it continues to bring its EGR award-winning solution to tier-one gaming and sports betting companies worldwide.

Checkd Dev returns to enhance Sky Sports Fantasy Football game ahead of World Cup
Successful igaming technology specialist back for new competition boosted by Media campaign
Fast-growing igaming technology business Checkd Dev has enhanced the free-to-play Sky Sports Fantasy Football (SSFF) game to incorporate the 2022 World Cup.
The SSFF platform, which includes integrated customer management elements from Sky Betting & Gaming, will be available to play through native iOS and Android apps and the SSFF website during the tournament in Qatar. It follows an ongoing campaign providing the domestic Premier League competition app and platform to Sky Sports.
In addition, Checkd Media is back in its role as a promotional partner ahead of the World Cup. The campaign will focus on the chance for players who missed out on selecting the likes of Premier League top scorer Erling Haaland to gain a second chance at glory during the World Cup.
The extension of the Media relationship follows a campaign that achieved over 18 million impressions and 1.5 million views during 2021-22, before Checkd Media was re-selected to drive awareness ahead of the current Premier League season.
Checkd Dev’s production of a fully rebuilt, future-proofed app and web-based platform for the game was bolstered by an outstanding and unrivalled stability record during 2021-22, with SSFF experiencing no downtime across the whole season.
The World Cup project is the latest of several high-profile media alliances for the tech development arm of Checkd Group.
Adam Patton, Checkd Dev MD, said: “The World Cup is the pinnacle of the global game and it’s fantastic to have been presented with the opportunity to create a Sky Sports Fantasy Football game that incorporates it. The news follows on from our creation of a platform last season that not only contained improved functionality but also a great deal of stability.
“Sky Sports Fantasy Football is a sophisticated and popular game that fans love and it’s a major boost for the Checkd Group to be the key delivery partner once again following a similarly successful second season in 2022-23, in which we once again leveraged our highly engaged social audiences.”
Luke Lockwood, Sky Bet Senior Product Manager, said: “Sky Sports Fantasy Football is a hugely popular game and it is vital that we utilise a platform that provides stability as well as enhanced features for our players. We believe Checkd Dev will deliver a World Cup contest that delivers the goods across mobile and desktop platforms, while as our promotional partners Checkd Media will make plenty of noise around the game to help drive sign-ups.”
Will Tyrrell, Director of UK Media at Checkd Media, said: “It has been fantastic to see Sky Sports Fantasy Football engage so well with our communities once again this season following the promotion of the competition through our popular channels. We look forward to putting together a similarly entertaining and engaging campaign around the World Cup game to capture the imagination of our audience.”
