Swiss sports data and content supplier, Sportradar, has become the official sports data provider for The Action Network courtesy of a new multi-year partnership.
More specifically, the New York-based sports analysis and media company will capitalize on Sportradar’s data services for its premium subscription product, Action Edge.
Available in a monthly or annual subscription package, the product provides bettors with “accurate and reliable real-time data” including “live odds” and “public money” trends for every game in all the major sports.
Commenting on the new partnership, Managing Director for US Media, Sportradar, Dave Abbott, said in an official press release…
“Sportradar, like The Action Network, sits at the center of sports, media and betting.
“As such, we are always looking to align ourselves with like-minded brands that understand the shifting nature of the fan experience and how to create engaging, bespoke products for sports fans. We are excited to work with The Action Network to fully unlock the potential of its growing audience.”
The collaboration will also aid in supporting the “creation of dynamic content,” which will allow the sports media company to provide sports consumers with a range of “unique data insights.”
Able to deliver more in-depth content regarding team and athletic performance, the aim of The Action Network is to have real-time interaction with consumers as they follow their action.
Chief Product Officer for The Action Network, Matt Restivo, elaborated…
“The traditional digital scoreboard must evolve to serve bettors. Sportradar’s seamless real-time data offering will allow us to do what we do best, which is serve our audience through our best in class app and memberships.
“Sportradar will help us efficiently scale the sports that we support, bringing more unique data and information to the consumer.”
