Sportradar renews partnership with Australian premier cricket competitions

Sportradar renews partnership with Australian premier cricket competitions
August 31, 2022

Leading global sports technology company, Sportradar, has renewed its partnership agreements with the top tier club cricket competitions in Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia. Currently, Sportradar is partnered with every single state and territory cricket governing body in Australia.

The extension of the Cricket Tasmania Premier League, KFC Queensland Premier Cricket and Western Australia Premier Cricket deals will see Sportradar remaining as the official streaming partner until mid-2025.

The alliance provides cricket associations with industry-leading digital solutions offered by Sportradar, including custom-themed match centres with live streams, highlights, live scores, fixtures, and statistics on one dedicated site.

The Australian 2021-2022 premier cricket season saw more than 3,000 cricket streams and 1.36 million balls captured, with 145,000 automated highlights generated from over 3,000 matches. The dedicated sites hosted 230,000 users and registered four million views across the match centre, highlighting Sportradar’s contribution to boosting visibility of Australian cricket and engaging fans and participants.

The announcement of the renewals comes after a collaboration with NT Cricket and its Cricket 365 initiative earlier this year by providing streaming solutions to support the program and bolster the Australian cricket community by keeping selectors’ eyes on emerging talent all year round. 

Jarod Pickering, Head of Cricket, Sports Solutions, Sportradar notes “Premier Cricket competitions are an important pillar connecting community cricket with elite cricket pathways. These partnerships have allowed us to build relationships and digital experiences to make visible emerging talent to more fans, boost engagement and create new sponsorship opportunities. We are committed to adding value to our partners and seeing grassroots cricket thrive in Australia.”

Nick Stuart, Head of Premier Cricket, Integrity & Projects, Queensland Cricket enthused “we are excited to continue our partnership with Sportradar and value their contribution to the local cricket community in Australia. Through our ongoing partnership, we have been able to utilise Sportradar’s advanced innovative technology to create an engaging viewing experience for local cricket fans.”

Sportradar is the trusted partner of more than 1,700 customers in over 120 countries and an official partner of the NBA, NHL, MLB, NASCAR, UEFA, FIFA, ICC and ITF.  Sportradar covers over 890,000 events annually across 92 sports.
