Sports data provider Sportradar has finalised a multi-year agreement to become the data partner of the International Basketball Federation (FIBA), the world governing body for the sport.
Sportradar has gained the non-exclusive right to collect, distribute and archive data from all adult competitions organised by FIBA, for use by the media and betting industries.
The agreement also comes with an option for FIBA to take delivery of Sportradar’s integrity services, designed to provide an early warning system to identify potential match-fixing and unusual betting patterns.
As the world governing body for basketball, FIBA organises and holds the commercial rights to major international tournaments such as the FIBA Basketball World Cup, as well as continental championships including the FIBA EuroBasket.
It commented that it had partnered with Sportradar due to its position as a leading sports data service provider which understands the needs of sporting federations to provide solutions for data collection and distribution.
Sportradar chief executive Carsten Koerl commented: “We are very pleased to cooperate with FIBA as the world governing body for basketball.
“Our market leading betting and sports data services will engage basketball fans worldwide in new ways and across all platforms,” he added.
