In a new long-term agreement, the sports data firm will power all major men’s and women’s CEV competitions across indoor, beach and snow volleyball with its suite of scoring, coaching and competition management capabilities.

For fans, Genius will deliver real-time statistics for improved coverage, with live scoring solution ‘e-Scoresheet’ now having been specifically developed for beach and snow.

This should provide consistent and official match scoresheets across dozens of competitions such as CEV EuroBeachVolley, the CEV Beach Volleyball Continental Tour, and the CEV Snow Volleyball European Tour.

Commenting on the organisations’ partnership, Mark Locke, Genius Sports’ CEO, said: “Providing sports with cutting-edge solutions to maximise the value of their live data and streamline the running of their competitions has been a central part of our business for more than 20 years.

“This approach is more important than ever for us and our partners and we are proud that our partnership with CEV will drive the growth and digital transformation of European Volleyball across indoor, beach and snow.”

As an integrity partner to the National Football League, English Premier League and Euroleague Basketball, CEV hopes Genius can help preserve the transparency and fairness of European Volleyball from betting-related corruption.

Its Bet Monitoring system will analyse betting activity across all CEV competitions, cross-referencing real-time odds movements with predictive algorithms to automatically flag any potentially suspicious activity.

“The partnership with Genius Sports is a pivotal piece of our long-term vision to modernise volleyball and its governance,” remarked Aleksandar Boričić, CEV President.

“We wish to innovate at all levels and the latest solutions provided by Genius Sports will be playing a key role in supporting our efforts to engage with our passionate fans even further, and to provide a standardised, high-quality digital experience across all of our competitions.”
