The report also showed Sportradar’s adjusted EBITDA grew to €36.4m in Q3 2022, against €20.8m for the same period in 2021 – representing a rise of 75%.
For the first nine months of the year ending September, Sportradar’s revenue totalled €523.9m compared to €408.8m in 2021, and its EBITDA rose to €90.7m from €80.6m.
