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.
