MGM GVC Interactive, the US joint venture between MGM Resorts International and GVC Holdings, has selected Sportradar as its exclusive supplier of US sports data.

Sportradar will be the JV’s exclusive provider within the US of sports betting data from certain sports leagues which Sportradar has the right to distribute.

"MGM and GVC are leaders in the sports betting landscape, and we are proud to be their provider for US sports data," said Sportradar vice president of gaming sales Neale Deeley.

"We have been preparing for the opening of the US market for some time now with an across the board ramp up of our US sports betting offering and we are delighted with this endorsement from MGM and GVC that all the hard work is delivering what world class betting operators are looking for."

The agreement covers a wide range of pre-match and live betting services, along with bet stimulation content such as live match trackers.

“We have a clear and simple objective; to provide our US customers with the best and broadest range of betting products in the market,” said newly appointed MGM GVC Interactive CEO Adam Greenblatt. “Sportradar is a great partner to help us get there, enabling us to offer a huge spectrum of US sports events while leveraging off our global portfolio."
