Stay on top of the action with Opta

Whether you have in-ground staff reporting live, teams covering the action remotely for broadcast and OTT services or focus on news and magazine programming, we have unique tools, services and a team of experts to help support your broadcasts and add context and detail to commentary and coverage. 

Our stats helpdesk provides a team of experienced sports data journalists who produce content throughout the week and respond to queries in real-time during fixtures. The in-depth preview packs they produce provide the perfect preparation for commentary teams and summarisers and their Opta Facts bring one-line data-driven insights to help shape pre-match narratives, highlight key in-game moments and provide insights for highlights and social media content after the final whistle.

Our web-based Live Monitor and QueryTool bring the user, whether a commentator, researcher, editor or producer, a broad range of Opta data displayed in easy to comprehend visualisations and tables. Live Monitor also provides a direct line to our expert editorial help desk, who are on-hand to answer your queries and provide you with reactionary content as the game unfolds.
