Stats Perform has announced that it has secured a partnership extension, retaining its position as the official data partner of Eredivisie football for a further three years.
All Eredivisie matches and competitions will continue to be exclusively tracked and monitored by Stats Perform’s Opta football data collection service.
The sportstech group’s data feeds and advanced Opta Analytics will track every game played across the men’s Eredivisie, Eerste Division, KNVB Beker and Super Cup, in addition to live updates from the men’s third tier, Tweede Divisie, and the women’s Eredivisie and KNVB Becker competitions.
“As another domestic campaign gets underway, I am pleased that we have extended our partnership with Stats Perform for another three seasons. Opta data enables us to share a wide range of facts and stories with our audience,” remarked Matthijs van Elk, Head of Digital at Eredivisie Media & Marketing CV.
Further duties will also see Eredivisie lead broadcaster ESPN Netherlands benefit from Stats Perform live feeds and editorial analysis to enhance matchday broadcasts.
As part of the agreement, ESPN Netherlands will also have access to PressBox Video, which comprises an extensive archive of raw video content, captured from press conferences and interviews for use in broadcast.
Alex Rice, Stats Perform Chief Rights Officer, added: “As the Official Data partner of Eredivisie, we are looking forward to seeing Opta data powering the league’s entire digital ecosystem, covering men’s and women’s competitions, as well as across the official channels of the league’s broadcast partner, ESPN.
“At Stats Perform, we aim to empower our partners by helping them develop and evolve their coverage. Through the implementation of PressBox, we are confident that we will be able to help ESPN deliver fast, compelling stories on the standout performers each week, courtesy of advanced data insights.”
