Official rights holders

Opta's philosophy is based on bringing data to life. We use our in-house expertise to add value to data, making it interesting, compelling, relevant and accessible.

We are determined to make sense of stats in the way that everyone can understand. It is our passion and it is the reason that sports fans recognise and value our brand.  

Opta can act as custodians of the sporting heritage. Using a technologically robust production and distribution framework Opta collate, manage, protect and bring to life the stories that underpin this heritage.

Opta understand that not all rights holders are the same. Each has different priorities and strategic objectives. Establishing official data partnerships involves an understanding of these specific objectives and how data can help drive or support these. Opta are experts at collecting, managing and distributing official data on behalf of rights holders, maximising existing distribution channels, as well as opening up new ones to help gain maximum exposure, column inches, downloads and page impressions.
