Sports data and analytics provider Stats Perform has entered into an official data partnership with Liga Profesional de Fútbol del Ecuador (LigaPro), the organisation that runs the country’s Serie A and Serie B domestic club football competitions.
Under the agreement, Stats Perform will serve as the official data partner for the LigaPro Serie A and Serie B.
Stats Perform’s Opta and RunningBall data brands will exclusively deliver official data and player performance data to licensed betting operators, broadcasters, publishers, fantasy providers and the leagues’ own digital platforms.
The deal will also see Stats Perform’s Integrity Unit help protect the integrity of the LigaPro by monitoring global betting markets, implementing an integrity intelligence programme and running a performance integrity analysis service.
“We are excited to be working with Stats Perform; not only will they help us improve on-field performances through deep and accurate data, they will support us in preventing match manipulation and betting fraud,” LigaPro president Miguel Ángel Loor said.
“Stats Perform’s pedigree for collecting deep, accurate and fast data and unrivalled distribution network will help us engage fans globally and grow the sport we love. ”
The deal comes after Stats Perform in August was also appointed as the exclusive streaming rights and betting data provider to the Brazilian Série A and Série B club football competitions.
