Sports betting provider Sportradar has announced that basketball icon Michael Jordan will serve as a special advisor to the company’s board of directors, while he will also increase his level of investment in the supplier.
Jordan will offer strategic counsel to the board, focusing on the US market and using his experience of building successful business partnerships in the sports industry.
The 58-year old also holds a special advisory role on the DraftKings board of directors, after taking an equity interest in the fantasy sports operator in 2020.
