Digital content creator Fusion Media is managing official Premier League football content from the world’s leading supplier of detailed sports data, OPTA. OPTA collects, collates and analyses live sports data from around the world and across a broad spectrum of sports – from rugby league and rugby union to cricket, baseball and motorsports.
Fusion Media already licenses, creates and publishes digital content for some of the world’s biggest sports, lifestyle and entertainment brands. Now, working together with Omnisport, a football-focused sport video provider, and OPTA’s official partner the Premier League, Fusion Media will manage an extensive range of exclusive football video and statistics content for thousands of fans across the United Kingdom.
CEO of Fusion Media, David Jarvis said “This is great news, we’ve secured the rights to publish OPTA’s Premier League content to fans via our marketing platform. This is an excellent brand for us to work with, expanding our portfolio of sports media provision and bolstering our presence in this area of the market.”
The licensed content also includes all leading UK football clubs playing in the Champions League and Europa League and is due to be published and marketed online in the coming weeks with plans to also expand into various other European territories.
