Genius Sports Group has announced an extension with the Spanish ACB league of its long-term exclusive betting data agreement.
As part of this extension, the Betgenius division of Genius Sports Group will obtain the official rights to continue transmitting ACB data in real time to its global network of licenced sportsbook operators
Said Sean Conroy, Commercial Director at Genius Sports, reflecting on the agreement: “With several esteemed clubs including FC Barcelona Bàsquet and Real Madrid Baloncesto, ACB is globally regarded as one of the best, most competitive leagues in basketball.
“We’re proud to extend this partnership as their exclusive Official Data partner, providing continued investment and opportunities to engage new fans around the world.”
In an attempt to safeguard both the quality and importance of its official records, ACB recently initiated its first compliance rights programme.
Unauthorized data collectors will continue to be excluded from ACB stadiums as part of the expanded agreement with Genius Sports Company, thereby granting the league leverage and exposure over how its live data is used, handled and circulated for betting.
Joan M. Carreras, ACB ‘s director of international growth, added: “We increasingly appreciate the importance of our competitions data and we take the choice of our data partner very seriously, so after the experience of previous seasons we are glad to establish a long-term partnership with Genius Sports.
“Its expertise with data management and its involvement in integrity are a guarantee for us in such sensitive matters.”
