Polish sports data and statistics provider STATSCORE has been named the official data provider of Poland’s top-flight Women’s Ekstraliga and the men’s third division 2. Liga.
The deal is an enhancement of the firm’s initial agreement with the Polish Football Association (PZPN) in 2020, which saw STATSCORE deliver statistics for the second-tier men’s 1. Liga.
“We warmly welcome the Women’s Ekstraliga and the 2. Liga of football among STATSCORE’s partners!” said Tomasz Myalski, CEO of STATSCORE. “It’s thanks to you that we’re able to build the biggest sports data centre in the world.
“As a company that strategically supports Polish sports, we’re happy to be able to support the development and promotion of two more leagues operating in our country.
“Fans of 2. Liga and Ekstraliga will surely appreciate the advanced statistics and exceptional live coverage of the games of their favourite teams.”
Under the terms of the new arrangement, LeagueCentre platforms will be integrated into the official webpages of the leagues within the Łączy nas piłka website, whilst similar TeamCentres will be added to the official websites of specific clubs.
Pawl Guminak, Chairman of the 2. Liga, said: “We know how important the analysis and statistics are nowadays, and how well they attract the attention of football fans.
“We can say that they have become a crucial, or even indispensable, feature of this sport.
We are also happy to keep improving the quality of the league by establishing such a collaboration.”
STATSCORE and both the Women’s Elkstagliga and Men’s 2. Liga stated that the cooperation will allow the PZPN to provide coverage of the competitions in ‘better and more efficient ways’.
“The cooperation of STATSCORE and the Polish Football Association is a good example of reaching our goals in relation to sports organisations,” added Radosław Firlej, Business Development Manager at STATSCORE.
“We are glad that new competition organisers recognise the vast and unique opportunities of development that our company offers to sports tournaments as their Official Data Provider.”
In August last year, STATSCORE was selected as the naming rights sponsor of the Futsal Ekstaklasa, and as a result, was integrated into the league’s new logo, gaining significant advertising exposure.
This was followed by an agreement with sportsbook Altenar in October, which saw the two join forces to create ‘high-quality’ LivematchPro widgets.
The data provider was named one of the 50 fastest growing technology companies in Central Europe in 2018, and also maintains partnerships with media outlets Le Figaro and Onet, and bookmakers Ladbrokes and Eurobet.
