Penn National Gaming Inc has entered into a partnership with Sportradar, the global provider of sports data and content, to use official National Football League (NFL) data across the company’s sports betting platforms.
Under the auspices of the agreement, Penn National has the ability to offer a wide array of live, in-game wagering options on NFL games at its retail sports betting locations and on its Barstool Sportsbook app, which is expected to launch in the third quarter of 2020.
Jon Kaplowitz, Senior Vice President of Penn National’s interactive gaming division, commented: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Sportradar for NFL data in advance of the upcoming football season.
“Delivering official NFL data to our growing, loyal audience, including over 66 million Barstool fans and our 20 million casino customers, will provide tremendous wagering opportunities where we operate sports books across the country.”
The partnership will also allow Penn National access to official NFL play-by-play data feed for live in-game wagers on the company’s sports betting platforms.
Neale Deeley, Sportradar’s Vice President of US Sales and Gaming, said: “Penn National is at the forefront of sports betting in the US, and we are delighted to extend our partnership to include official NFL data. We look forward to working together and providing a unique betting experience for their loyal customers during the upcoming NFL season and beyond.”
