MGM GVC Interactive Announces Sportradar as an Exclusive Supplier of U.S. Sports Data

NEW YORK & LONDON & LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sportradar, the global leader in analyzing and leveraging the power of
sports data, today announced an agreement with MGM GVC Interactive LLC,
the joint venture between MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM) (“MGM
Resorts”) and GVC Holdings PLC (LON:GVC) (“GVC”), to be its exclusive
provider within the United States of sports betting data from certain US

proud to be their provider for US sports data,” said Neale Deeley, VP
Gaming Sales, Sportradar. “We have been preparing for the opening of the
US market for some time now with an across the board ramp up of our US
sports betting offering and we are delighted with this endorsement from
MGM and GVC that all the hard work is delivering what world class
betting operators are looking for.”

The agreement covers a wide range of pre-match and live betting services
along with bet stimulation content such as live match trackers. It is
the latest development in a longstanding relationship which is built on
trust and collaboration.

Adam Greenblatt, MGM GVC Interactive’s CEO commented, “We have a clear
and simple objective; to provide our US customers with the best and
broadest range of betting products in the market. Sportradar is a great
partner to help us get there, enabling us to offer a huge spectrum of US
sports events while leveraging off our global portfolio.”
