This week sports information group Sportradar announced that they've signed an agreement with the European Handball Federation, wherein they'll provide data collection and distribution to media groups and online casinos.
The deal will run through 2030 and will see stats collected for more than 1,500 national team and beach team matches per year, with an additional 750 European Cup matches per season also included. Sportradar has become one of the world's largest data collection groups for sports information related to sportsbetting.
Commenting on the deal Sportradar's David Lampitt said, "We have a long-standing relationship with EHF and EHFM and we are delighted to have further extended our partnership to secure a long-term data and distribution rights agreement. We will be working alongside them to continue to grow the sport via our extensive network of media and betting partners."
EHF managing director of marketing David Szlezak added: "It is absolutely vital to offer high-quality and accurate data from the EHF's club competitions. With this new cooperation, we are adding to the top-level scouting we have already achieved with Sportradar. For example, right from the first rounds, data collected in the new EHF European League will be on EHF Champions League standards. We are looking forward to working with Sportradar over the next decade to realise the full potential of this data."
