StatBroadcast and Genius Sports announce compatibility partnership for NCAA LiveStats


StatBroadcast, a leading provider of statistics delivery and technology for NCAA schools, and Genius Sports, a global leader in sports data, technology and integrity services, announced today that the StatBroadcast live stats platforms and NCAA LiveStats for Volleyball and Soccer will have full compatibility with each other for the 2019-2020 academic year.

 The NCAA LiveStats solutions are part of a ground-breaking initiative launched by the NCAA in May 2018 alongside Genius Sports, to transform the digital collection and distribution of intercollegiate sports data across all three divisions. NCAA LiveStats for Volleyball and Soccer were released earlier this month, following the successful launch of NCAA LiveStats for Basketball last season which was used at courtside across more than 10,000 games.

 “We're excited to be able to continue this collaboration that allows the NCAA and its member institutions the ability to leverage the power of our live stats platform while using the enhanced statistics collection tools that the NCAA and Genius Sports are developing,” StatBroadcast President Nate Policar said. “The new software has not only improved the process and reliability of the data, but is also creating a depth of new statistics that hasn't been available before and that can be leveraged and used by all parties including coaching staffs, players and broadcast partners.”

 Together last March, the StatBroadcast and NCAA LiveStats platforms helped deliver live in-game statistics and data to the NCAA, its membership and its strategic partners throughout every game of the NCAA Division I Men's and Women's Basketball Tournaments.
