Sportradar granted sublicence, must stop scouting in Genius-FDC settlement

Sportradar’s legal dispute against Genius Sports and the Fooball DataCo (FDC) has reached a resolution, with the parties agreeing out of court that Sportradar will receive a sublicence for English football data, but must stop unofficial scouting.

Under the terms of the settlement, Sportradar will be granted a sublicence that will grant access to a delayed secondary feed until 2024. In exchange for this, Sportradar will cease its unauthorised in-stadium data collection activities.

Sportradar claimed that the system that had been built through this..
