“Football DataCo has worked successfully with Perform in the media and betting markets for the last three years to deliver best of breed products and services. We look forward to a new rights cycle working with Perform and providing customers with high quality and innovative data services.”

Totally Gaming says: Working alongside a series of partners such as Perform Group, Football DataCo has managed the collection, management and distribution of official event and performance data for professional football leagues in the UK since 2001. There is now a huge demand for high quality, fast and accurate data, not to mention official data which Football DataCo is able provide.
