Sportradar has announced it has received a supplier license in North Carolina ahead of online sports wagering going live on March 11.

Sportradar Solutions LLC, Sportradar’s U.S. betting subsidiary, was granted the license by the North Carolina State Lottery Commission and is valid for five years.

This latest news means that Sportradar holds 56 licenses, or equivalent, in North America across the U.S. states, territories, tribes and Canada

According to Sportradar, it provides sports data to sports betting and gaming agencies as well as advancing transparency and integrity across the marketplace.

Earlier this week Sportradar inked a deal to become the United Soccer League’s (USL) official Betting and Technology Partner. It will be responsible for collecting, licensing and distributing the USL’s betting and media data as well as offering live streaming of USL competitions for sports betting to its network of betting operators and media outlets.

At the end of February eight operators were approved to go live when the market opens on March 11. The operators approved to launch are as follows: bet365, BetMGM, DraftKings, ESPN Bet, Fanatics Sportsbook, FanDuel and Underdog.

Caesars Sportsbook has also been granted a supplier license as they are working with the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians. The operator made history this week as it accepted the first online wagers in North Carolina at two casinos in the state.
