Cricket West Indies (CWI) has entered into a new media and data agreement with Stats Perform. The sports content giant will now become CWI’s exclusive partner of official international and domestic cricket data and live stream rights.
This partnership brings a new revenue outcome for CWI through live streams, live data, and news video for all CWI home international fixtures across all men’s and women’s formats. It will include the ongoing high-profile tours against South Africa and Australia, and both Men’s and Women’s fixtures against Pakistan. It also covers CWI’s domestic competitions such as the CG Insurance Super50 Cup and West Indies Championship.
Dominic Warne, Commercial Director for CWI, said: “Partnering with Stats Perform creates a valuable new channel to increase the audience for and distribution of West Indies and regional tournament content allowing us to further connect with fans and partners in the Caribbean and overseas.
“This partnership also delivers a new revenue stream for CWI with distribution of content and data into sportsbooks, fantasy providers, global media and broadcasters. Stats Perform should be an excellent partner for CWI, considering their understanding of fans and the sports ecosystem, and the additional reach and data benefits that this partnership provides.”
