Sportradar granted sublicence, will stop scouting in Genius-FDC settlement

Sportradar’s legal dispute against Genius Sports and the Football DataCo (FDC) has reached a resolution, with the parties agreeing out of court that Sportradar will receive a sublicence for English football data, but that it must stop unofficial scouting.

Under the terms of the settlement, Sportradar will be granted a sublicence that will grant access to a delayed secondary feed until 2024. At the same time, Sportradar will cease its unauthorised in-stadium data collection activities.

The case, which dates back to February 2020, challenged the English and Scottish football data licensing regime. The framework was established in May 2019 when Genius signed a landmark agreement with FDC that granted the data business exclusive rights to collect, license and distribute live data from the Premier League, the Football League and the Scottish Professional Football League. The case was heard by the Competition Appeal Tribunal.

Sportradar claimed that the system that had been built through..

Genius beats revenue and earnings guidance in Q2

Sports data supplier Genius exceeded its revenue and earnings guidance in Q2 of 2022, while its loss was drastically reduced as large stock-based payments no longer weighed into its earnings.

The operator’s revenue exceeded its guidance for the quarter, which was set at $68m.

Betting technology, content and services brought in $44.8m, which was up by 10.4% year-on-year. Genius said about half of the increase was due to new customer additions, around $1.5m from renewed or renegotiated contracts with existing clients at higher prices, and a further $500,000 from “increased customer utilisation of existing Genius content”.

Revenue from media technology, content and services almost doubled to $15.0m. Sports technology content and services revenue was $11.3m, up 56.9%.

Looking at revenue geographically, $43.9m came from Europe, a 4.5% increase, $21.4m from the Americas, more than double the total from a year earlier, and $5.8m from the rest of the world, up by 34.9%.
