Sportradar To Provide NFL Data Feed to FanDuel
FanDuel and Sportradar have signed a partnership whereby Sportradar will provide the official NFL data feed to power FanDuel’s fantasy-football competitions. In April, the NFL named Sportradar its exclusive distributor of comprehensive statistics, providing official real-time scores, player statistics, and play-by-play data as well as the NFL’s proprietary Next Gen Stats player data, consisting of real-time, location-based data — such as routes ran, speed, and distance traveled — for all players in all games. With an acute focus on technology and development, Sportradar has quickly built an industry reputation for the highest-quality data distribution.
“We are building the best technologies, products, and features for sports fans and part of that is offering our users the most accurate and most compelling content,” says Nigel Eccles, CEO/co-founder, FanDuel. “Sportradar has built an incredible platform, and we are partnering with them to complement our core product by delivering the fastest play-by-play feed to our players.”
“Daily fantasy sports is an intensely competitive space,” says Steve Byrd, chief commercial officer, Sportradar, “and we could not be more pleased to partner with FanDuel to ensure that their fantasy players experience the most accurate play-by-play data this football season.”
The partnership with Sportradar comes a week after FanDuel’s acquisition of numberFire, the leading next-generation sports-analytics platform, which uses the powers of quantitative analysis to be the world’s most accurate predictor of sports performance.
