Stats Perform renews football video deals for Watch&Bet

1 October 2019

Sports data provider Stats Perform has renewed two agreements with broadcaster BeIN for video betting rights related to the French Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) and Turkish Football Federation (TFF).

The LFP deal will run for a further five years while the TFF agreement represents a three-year extension. Both deals grant rights for official video to be distributed to licensed global sportsbook operators via Stats Perform’s Watch&Bet service.

Under the LFP deal, more than 800 live football matches per season will be made available through Watch&Bet video feeds, including Ligue 1, Ligue 2, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophee des Champions.

The extended deal builds on a long-term relationship between Stats Perform and the LFP, with the football body already counting RunningBall as its official data partner and Stats Perform serving as the official tracking partner of the LFP for media and team performance.

Meanwhile, the TFF deal will permit Stats Perform to offer over 600 matches per season from the Turkish Super and TFF First League via Watch&Bet.

“We are delighted to have extended our partnership with BeIN and to continue to bring these two exciting competition packages to our global betting partners and their customers,” Stats Perform’s chief rights officer Alex Rice said.

“This renewal gives us the ability to offer global betting partners and their fans deeper coverage of their favourite leagues and players, and an extensive offering with the LFP. We are committed to enhancing the video experience with new features in order to deepen viewer connection to the game, its teams and players.”

The LFP and TFF live streams will now join over 100 other competitions in Stats Perform’s Watch&Bet portfolio.

Earlier this month, Stats Perform also entered into a global betting video and data partnership with the Argentine Football Association (AFA). Stats Perform will collect and distribute data from certain competitions governed by the AFA including the Superliga Argentina, Copa Superliga Argentina and Argentina Cup.
