Sportradar signs Data Partnership with the Slovak League Clubs Union
Sportradar is pleased to announce the new data partnership with the Slovak League Clubs Union (ÚLK). Sportradar has signed a multi-year deal with ÚLK and its exclusive marketing representative UFA Sports Slovakia to become the Official Data Partner of the two top level leagues in Slovak club football. Sportradar thereby acquired the worldwide and exclusive right to collect, archive and distribute sports data of the premier division (Fortuna liga) and second-level division (DOXXbet 2. liga) and distribute such sports data as “Official Data” to the media and betting industry.
ÚLK is the governing body of the two highest professional football leagues in Slovakia and is responsible for the organisation and marketing of the Fortuna liga and DOXXbet 2. liga. Slovak football has been creating its own modern history ever since Czechoslovakia split into Slovakia and the Czech Republic in 1993. ÚLK was founded in 2009 as an association of legal entities and constitutes an autonomous organisation of football clubs, with its own legal personality and organisational structure. Furthermore, it is a regular member organisation of the Slovak Football Association (SFZ), the largest organisation in Slovakia with more than 400,000 members.
ÚLK partners up with Sportradar because of the experience as a leading sports data service provider. As the Official Data Partner to many federations, Sportradar understands the needs of sports federations to provide sophisticated solutions for data collection and distribution. ÚLK and Sportradar will jointly implement an advanced data collection system for all matches of the Fortuna liga and DOXXbet 2. liga. The supply of Official Data will further support integrity measures by creating a framework for more extensive information exchange and cooperation with the legal gambling industry.
Sportradar CEO, Carsten Koerl said, “We are very pleased to cooperate with ÚLK as the official governing body of the premier division of Slovak football. The Slovakians had many outstanding personalities who stamped their name on Czechoslovakia’s football story and assisted the nation in achieving glory. Today, Slovakia is a rising football nation developing with steady footsteps. Our market leading betting and sports data services will help to engage fans of Slovak football in new ways and across all platforms.”
ÚLK President, Dušan Tittel said, “As an established market leader in the field of sports data services, Sportradar will be an excellent partner for ÚLK and we are looking forward to working with them. Together we will enable all fans of Slovak football to be able to utilise the full breadth and depth of the content offered. This partnership opens up some really interesting opportunities.”
