Sportradar To Sell Official NFL Data and Next Gen Stats to Legal Sports Betting Operators

The term, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too,” is how I am defining the sports tech news announced yesterday regarding the new deal involving official NFL data and Next-Gen Stats distributed both domestically and internationally to legalized betting companies through an updated deal with Sportradar.

NFL Renews Partnership With Zebra Technologies As Official Player Tracking Provider

Zebra continues to power Next Gen Stats as NFL’s Official On-Field Player Tracking Provider

The National Football League loves the Next-Gen Stats platform so much they renewed their contract with Zebra Technologies Corporation as the Official Player Tracking Provider through the 2021 season. The CBA expires in 2020 so it is interesting to note that the NFL did not go beyond a three-year extension meaning the NFLPA might want a bigger piece of stats they generate in some form or fashion as many issues are debated at the bargaining table such as player safety, the percentage of money players get versus the owner take, and other important league issues...

Turkish official Cuneyt Cakir and VAR decide Champions League Quarter final match

It’s long been stated that referees in soccer need technology to help them get decisions right; it’s a topic that always rears it’s head after a high profile error – Frank Lampard’s strike against Germany in the last 16 tie of the 2010 World Cup is one that stands out as a goal that never was. Goal-line technology (GLT) was adopted and what a glowing success it has been. Unfortunately, it’s not only goal line decisions that cause debate and the hunger for more technology to follow gathered momentum and gradually different soccer authorities have gone live with Video Assistant Referees (VAR for short). The Sports Techie community blog is a strong supporter of VAR sports tech...
