DraftKings and Stats Perform extend data deal
DraftKings has extended its partnership with data provider Stats Perform for its daily fantasy sports and live fantasy products.
Under the deal, which started in 2012, DraftKings will use Stats Perform’s live data feeds for major US leagues including the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League, as well as college football, men’s college basketball and “most top soccer leagues”.
Stats Perform said this wide range of competitions offered would allow DraftKings to expand its daily fantasy sports contests into more sports and leagues.
“DraftKings has become a premier destination for skin-in-the-game sports fans,” DraftKings chief business officer Ezra Kucharz said. “Our growing list of DFS games are extremely popular and require fast and accurate data for fans who are following along to games in real-time.
