The Football Conference sign contract with Sportradar
Sportradar, one of the world’s leading suppliers of sports related data, is pleased to announce its new partnership with The Football Conference. Sportradar has signed a three-year deal with The Football Conference to become “Official Sports Data Partner of The Skrill Premier, North and South”.
The Football Conference was formed in 1979 from leading teams in the Northern Premier League and Southern League and had a single division for the first 25 years of its existence, but since the 2004/05 season has consisted of three divisions.
The Football Conference partners up with Sportradar because of the experience as a leading sports data service provider and believes that the distribution of Official Data will support integrity measures by helping to eliminate the unauthorised collection, dissemination and use of official or erroneous data and the presence of unofficial data collectors at events of The Skrill Conference Premier, North and South. The supply of Official Data will further support integrity measures by creating a framework for more extensive information exchange and cooperation with the legal gambling industry.
Brian Lee, Chairman of the Football Conference said: “We believe that Sportradar will be an excellent partner for The Football Conference and we look forward to working with them. As an established market leader in the field of sports data services they will become a very welcome addition to our portfolio of official partners. More information on match day impact will be supplied to our members shortly but an important element to recognise is a financial benefit from this arrangement, which will go into central funding to our clubs.”
Carsten Koerl, group chief executive officer, Sportradar, said: “We are very pleased to begin this cooperation with The Football Conference. Our market leading betting and sports data services will engage fans in new ways across all platforms.”
