Kindred Secures Access to Stats Perform’s RunningBall and Opta Solutions

The partnership comes as Kindred continues to develop and upgrade its proprietary sportsbook platform

Kindred announced that it has secured a new extensive agreement with sports data and analytics specialist Stats Perform. This will provide the former company with access to the latter firm’s RunningBall and Opta product suites and includes comprehensive, real-time official sports data feeds and statistics.

According to Kindred, the new deal will allow it to provide its customers with a frictionless in-play betting experience and trusted proposition betting markets centered on player performance.

The partnership comes as Kindred continues to develop and upgrade its proprietary sportsbook platform, Kindred Sportsbook Platform (KSP). By leveraging the official in-play sports data feed RunningBall and Opta player statistics, Kindred will be able to provide customers with tons of entertaining and informative content.

In the meantime, high-quality and low-latency data will ensure that the overall experience is fast and frictionless.

Kindred described Stats Perform’s RunningBall and Opta products and services as “important components” for achieving a high level of differentiation. The former company also praised the data specialist for its Content Player Pro, which makes the delivery of contextual insights, previews, live expected goals and in-game momentum possible.

Kindred concluded that the new deal is in line with its ambition to build a superior product and experience that is steeped in differentiation.

The New Deal Expands a Long-Standing Partnership

Stats Perform’s chief betting officer, Andrew Ashenden, expressed his excitement about the new agreement. He pointed out that this new deal deepens an already long-standing and highly productive partnership.

We are excited to help take Kindred to great heights through our market-leading, built-for-betting RunningBall and Opta products. We are delighted that Kindred recognizes the value we will unlock together in this exciting new partnership.
