The Services Provider of 2021 was Sportradar; the multinational business is an industry leader in collecting and analysing sports data. The company has more than 7,000 data journalists, 250 IT experts and 1,000 clients. It has also partnered with popular leagues and sporting brands across the world like the NBA, ITF, Nascar and FIFA, making it the ideal candidate to take the Award home.
The runner up was Fast Track; even though the company is a well-known name within the industry, having partnerships with Kindred and Gaming Innovation Group, the brand was unable to take top spot off Sportradar.
In third place was Continent 8 Technologies; the company has been around for more than 20 years and has grown to create a global network with data centres and strategic points of presence in four continents. The rest of the Shortlist included Omega Systems, CSB Group, Enteractive, Internet Vikings, Bayes Esports, VAIX and Wiggin.
“It’s one we’re extremely proud of. It’s certainly been an eventful time, and this is a great recognition of a lot of hard-working and talented people involved in this from Sportradar’s side”- Adam Azor, Global Head of Marketing, Sportradar
