Partner Success Story
With 213 national federations, the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) is responsible for driving the global development of the game.
FIBA wanted to equip its membership with best-in-class technology which would enable them to take direct control over their data and grow basketball’s global audience. However, it required a highly specialised partner who could deliver and support robust systems as well as the flexibility to cater to leagues and federations’ individual needs.
FIBA Secretary General Andreas Zagklis and Genius Sports CEO Mark Locke present the benefits of this historic 15-year partnership.
Genius Sports’ partnership with FIBA began back in 2004 with the development of FIBA Organizer, a digital system for the management of any basketball competition format.
After four years of successful cooperation, FIBA requested the development of a tool that would enable it to centralise its data through the real-time collection of statistics. Genius Sports subsequently launched FIBA LiveStats, giving leagues and federations of all sizes an official data feed that could underpin their relationships with fans, commercial partners and coaches.
FIBA, through its International Basketball Federation, has set a precedent for good governance across the world of sport. Its member leagues and federations have been provided with cutting-edge technology solutions, catered to their individual requirements and specifications.
Ten years on, FIBA LiveStats has become the premier live data solution in world basketball. All FIBA members can use the rich statistics to power their websites, mobile apps, fantasy sports sites, broadcast graphics and much more.
