“One of the pillars of our administration is the incorporation of technology applied to the development of sport,” said ADC president Gerardo Montenegro. “This new agreement with Genius Sports marks continuity in the investment and optimisation process of the National League and of all its competitions.
“It gives us great pleasure to continue with this team effort and to be able to offer our competitions this important tool for clubs, coaches, media and fans of Argentine basketball.”

“The ADC have done a fantastic job of harnessing their real-time data to run their operations, deliver a world-class fan experience and expand their global audience. We’re proud to have extended this long-term partnership during a difficult period for all sports, and look forward to driving their continued growth going forward.”
