Sportradar subsidiary Betradar has adapted its virtual football game and re-launched it as the Nations Cup following the end of the Euro 2016 football tournament.

The new title is an update on the Euro Cup game which was launched in May to tap into public interest in the Euro 2016 competition.

The Nations Cup is a virtual international competition played by 24 national teams, providing 70-minute tournament cycles and over 1,000 betting opportunities per tournament.

The game is powered by an extensive collection of data and statistics designed tol ensure that the product offers “the most realistic reflection of real events, outcomes and probabilities.”

The tournament is contested by the best national teams drawn from around the world and teams are accurately modelled to reflect their real world strengths and weaknesses.

“Over 20 operators launched our Euro Cup version prior to kick off in France,” said Neale Deeley, managing director of virtual gaming at Betradar. “Interest from punters was exceptional with overall stakes on virtual football up almost 30 per cent on the previous month.

“The Nations Cup builds on that success by delivering high quality virtual football in a way that is built for betting.”
