Stats Perform has announced a three-year extension to its cooperation as the official statistics partner of Eredivisie football.
Stats Perform’s Opta football data gathering service will continue to follow and monitor all Eredivisie matches and competitions.
The data feeds and advanced Opta Analytics of the sportstech group will track every game in the men’s Eredivisie, Eerste Division, KNVB Beker, and Super Cup, as well as live updates from the men’s third tier, Tweede Divisie, and the women’s Eredivisie and KNVB Becker competitions.
Matthijs van Elk, Head of Digital at Eredivisie Media & Marketing CV said: “As another domestic campaign gets underway, I am pleased that we have extended our partnership with Stats Perform for another three seasons. Opta data enables us to share a wide range of facts and stories with our audience.”
ESPN Netherlands, the Eredivisie’s leading broadcaster, will use Stats Perform live feeds and editorial analysis to improve matchday broadcasts.
ESPN Netherlands will also get access to PressBox Video, an enormous archive of raw video content recorded from press conferences and interviews for use in broadcast, as part of the partnership.
Entire digital ecosystem coverage
Stats Perform’s Chief Rights Officer, Alex Rice, added: “As the Official Data partner of Eredivisie, we are looking forward to seeing Opta data powering the league’s entire digital ecosystem, covering men’s and women’s competitions, as well as across the official channels of the league’s broadcast partner, ESPN.
“At Stats Perform, we aim to empower our partners by helping them develop and evolve their coverage. Through the implementation of PressBox, we are confident that we will be able to help ESPN deliver fast, compelling stories on the standout performers each week, courtesy of advanced data insights.”
