Sports data and technology supplier, Stats Perform, announced it has secured the long-term official betting data rights for the United Soccer League (USL) competitions.
The deal covers the USL’s two professional leagues, the USL Championship and USL League One.
Stats Perform will supply the data to licensed sportsbooks and daily fantasy operators. It follows the supplier’s announcement in January this year that it had secured the exclusive official data rights to Major League Soccer (MLS), as well as US men and women national team games.
The deal will see Stats Perform provide game, team and player data for over 1,000 USL soccer matches per season. There is potential to add more competitions beyond USL Championship and League One.
Stats Perform chief rights officer Alex Rice commented: “Soccer is the undisputed biggest betting sport in the world, which means hundreds of licensed sportsbooks and millions of bettors trust us to power their entertainment by collecting data with the utmost professionalism and integrity. Our data collection team is the best in the world at what they do and we’re delighted to have been selected by the USL to deliver the best possible betting experiences across their competitions.”
