Sportradar secures sports betting approval in Connecticut and West Virginia
| By Robert Fletcher
Sportradar has secured an online gaming service provider licence in the state of Connecticut and renewed its sports wagering supplier licence in West Virginia, while the provider also struck new integrity deals with two European basketball organisations.
Connecticut opened its legal retail and online betting in October 2021, while West Virginia was one of first states to legalise sports betting after the repeal of PASPA, launching its market in August of 2018.
The licences will enable Sportradar to offer sports data and related services in both states.
“As sports betting legalisation accelerates in the US, strong and transparent data will help govern the growing industry expansion in a sustainable and ethical manner,” Sportradar US chief executive Arne Rees said.
