Stats Perform Renews Video Rights Deal with French Ligue de Football Professionnel and Turkish Football Federation
BeIN Awards Stats Perform Long-Term Global Betting Video Rights for French and Turkish Competitions
CHICAGO/LONDON– October 1, 2019 – Today, Stats Perform, the revolutionary leader in sports AI and data, announced two long-term betting video renewals with host broadcaster BeIN. The deal includes a five-year renewal for French Ligue de Football Professionnel (LFP) and a three-year renewal for Turkish Football Federation (TFF) video rights to be distributed to licensed global sportsbook operators through Stats Perform’s Watch&Bet service.
The long-term agreement with LFP will see over 800 live football matches per season made available through Watch&Bet video feeds, including Ligue 1, Ligue 2, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophee des Champions. The extension reinforces the deep relationship between Stats Perform and French football, with Stats Perform’s fast data RunningBall arm already serving as the official data partner of the LFP. Through Runningball, Stats Perform’s network of highly trained and experienced data scouts have exclusive access to collect official, ultrafast data in stadium for distribution to global sportsbooks. Stats Perform also serves as the official tracking partner of the LFP for media and team performance.
The three-year agreement with the TFF will see over 600 matches per season from the Turkish Super and TFF First League available through the Watch&Bet service. The new deal demonstrates LFP and TFF’s commitment to providing a best-in-class betting experience and bolsters Stats Perform’s top-tier global football offering.

This renewal gives us the ability to offer global betting partners and their fans deeper coverage of their favourite leagues and players, and an extensive offering with the LFP. We are committed to enhancing the video experience with new features in order to deepen viewer connection to the game, its teams and players.”
