The Dutch football top-flight Eredivisie has renewed its partnership with Stats Perform, with the latter retaining its position as the league’s official data partner for the next three years.
Stats Perform will continue to exclusively track and monitor all Eredivisie fixtures and competitions using its OPTA football data collection service.
Leveraging Opta Analytics and its data feeds, Stats Perform will track and monitor every game across the men’s Eredivisie, Eerste Division, KNVB Beker, and Super Cup.
The sports data technology and analytics firm will also provide live updates from the men’s third tier, the Tweede Divisie, as well as the women’s Eredivisie and KNVB Becker competitions.
Alex Rice, Stats Perform Chief Rights Officer, remarked: “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.”
Stats Perform will also provide live feeds and editorial analysis to enhance matchday broadcasts for the Eredivisie’s lead media rights holder ESPN Netherlands.
ESPN Netherlands will have access to Stats Performs’ PressBox video, which comprises an extensive archive of raw video content, captured from press conferences and interviews for use in broadcast.
“As another domestic campaign gets underway, I am pleased that we have extended our partnership with Stats Perform for another three seasons,” said Matthijs van Elk, Head of Digital at Eredivisie Media & Marketing CV. “Opta data enables us to share a wide range of facts and stories with our audience.”
