UK Professional Football Leagues Announce Opta as New Data Partner for 3 Seasons 2013-16


LONDON, Mar. 5, 2013/ PRN=KYODO JBN/--

     The four UK professional football Leagues (Premier League, The Football

League, Scottish Premier League and Scottish Football League) have appointed

Opta as their official media data collection and distribution partner for three

seasons commencing with the 2013-14 season.

    Opta will use their unique performance analysis technology to supply

official football data from the leagues' competitions in real-time and this

will be delivered across broadcast and digital channels globally.

    This data includes, where appropriate, detailed tactical and positional

analysis such as pitch-view graphics incorporating player-touch-maps, heat-maps

and full-passing-chalkboards. These products will provide an unparalleled level

of information and insight for the leagues' broadcast partners as well as

hundreds of millions of fans throughout the world.

    In addition, and for the first time, official partners of the Barclays

Premier League, such as Barclays and EA Sports and official partners of The

Football League Championship will be able to access and utilise live Opta

performance data.

    Opta was awarded the rights following a competitive tender process. Opta

CEO Aidan Cooney commented "This is great news for Opta and great news for the

fans of the UK leagues. Opta has created and shaped the agenda for the use of

data driven analysis and statistics in football in the UK and around the world.

We are delighted to be now working directly with leagues such as the Premier

League to expand offerings to its fans and partners."

    Richard Masters, Premier League Director of Marketing & Sales, said "The

Barclays Premier League recognises the increasing importance of relevant,

quality and immediate data to fans, which is why we are investing in a company

with a proven track record. We look forward to working with Opta and are sure

their data and analysis will help us significantly improve our digital and

broadcast offerings."

    Richard Heaselgrave, Chief Commercial Officer of The Football League, said

"The modern football fan wants cutting edge live data at their fingertips and

Opta have the ability to deliver an outstanding, market leading service. We

look forward to working with Opta and are hugely excited to be introducing live

performance data for Championship matches for the very first time."

    Opta has revolutionised the world of football data over the past decade and

now is the official data partner for the world's most innovative leagues

including Bundesliga, Eredivisie and MLS.
