Stats Perform will distribute through its Watch&Bet streaming service content from the premium Club and National Team competitions of the European Handball Federation (EHF) to licenced sportsbook operators.
As part of the 10-year deal, Stats Perform will stream over 500 handball games a season that will be made available to betting partners of the data provider.
Alex Rice, Chief Rights Officer of Stats Perform, commented: “Handball is one of the leading indoor sports for watching and betting and its popularity is growing across Europe and beyond.
“To have secured competitions like the EHF Champions League and the European Championships (EUROS) for the next ten years enables our sportsbook partners to provide their customers with a seamless, consistent, premium handball betting and streaming experience.”
In Stats Perform’s Watch&Bet portfolio, the EHF live streams enter over 100 other tournaments, which also include live video streams of football, tennis, basketball, cricket, rugby, ice hockey and more.
The agreement forms part of the exclusive media and marketing relationship of the EHF and EHF Marketing GmbH (EHFM) with the Infront and DAZN Business, which began in July 2020.
Registered operators will be able to improve their existing markets available for handball via the coverage offered by the Watch&Bet app, enabling bettors to wager via mobile, online and retail platforms.
