Matchroom has today September, 14, announced a five-year renewal with Stats Perform, a deal that will see the partnership with the SportsTech leader in data and AI technology pass twenty years.
The long-term, trusted partnership sees Stats Perform retain the worldwide exclusive live betting streaming rights for Matchroom Multi Sport and PDC TV events, including some of the biggest tournaments in sport from the Mosconi Cup, World Darts Championship, Champion of Champions Snooker, and more.
Under the multi-year agreement, Stats Perform will have the exclusive right to distribute live video streams of the competitions to licensed sportsbooks, creating exceptional betting experiences online, on mobile, and in retail betting venues.
Stats Perform recently worked with the PDC Darts Home Tour delivering coverage to some of the world’s leading sportsbooks as Matchroom and the PDC led the way in sports innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alex Rice, Stats Perform Chief Rights Officer, commented: “We are delighted to be able to continue our long-standing relationship with Matchroom. The multi-sport nature of the deal provides our clients with a broad range of content which appeals to a high number of betting fans. In Matchroom, we have found a great partner who shares our vision for providing access to premium betting content.”
The Matchroom announcement follows the recent news that Stats Perform acquired the live streaming rights to the Belgium Jupiler Pro League. Both of these partnerships form part of Stats Perform’s official betting live streaming portfolio which also includes the Brazilian Leagues, National Basketball League, Spanish La Liga soccer, Women’s Tennis Association, French Ligue 1 soccer, Kontinental Hockey League, and more.
Matchroom Chairman Barry Hearn added: “Stats Perform are one of our longest-serving partners and this new partnership underlines our commitment to leading the way in sports programming. I’m delighted to see it pass 20 years of working together and long may that continue.”
