New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has renewed its agreement with Stats Perform, a global provider of cricket data, to be its exclusive official data partner for international and domestic competitions.
According to the agreement, Stats Perform will collect and provide event data to NZC as well as broadcast and betting operators, including “NZC’s official digital and social media platforms, providing insights and information to deepen the engagement of fans and bettors with NZC’s competitions, teams and players.”
The company will also provide live streaming to licensed sportsbook operators and expanded NZC competitions, but the service will be restricted to the Watch&Bet streaming platform.
Stats Perform is currently the partner of the England and Wales Cricket Board, Cricket Australia, New Zealand Cricket and Cricket South Africa.
Chief rights officer Alex Rice said: "We are thrilled to have renewed our partnership with New Zealand Cricket. We look forward to continuing to provide extensive coverage for all of the premier Cricket New Zealand matches and supporting the production of live streams from previously un-broadcast competitions."
"We look forward to providing an expanded premium in-play gaming experience, improved data insights and providing more content for sponsors."
In addition, Stats Perform has also reached a six-year agreement with GVC Holdings, soon to become Entain plc, to provide a new and exclusive official WTA tennis data service for in-play wagers.
