Sportradar acquires Optima

Sportradar has confirmed the acquisition of omni-channel platform business Optima.

The acquisition is effective immediately, although the data supplier has not revealed the price of the deal.

Optima will extend Sportradar’s betting services portfolio, making it a full-service B2B data, betting, trading and player management platform business.

The company was founded in 2012 and Sportradar CEO Carsten Koerl believes the M & A puts his company in "prime position" within the supplier market.

Optima CEO Jacob Lopez said: "Optima joining Sportradar is the next natural step in the achievement of our company vision.

"Sportradar is an organisation I have admired for a very long time and we couldn’t be happier to be joining forces with them.

"We are fully committed to a common vision and will work hard to continue ensuring Sportradar also offers the leading platform services for the group."
