UK sports business publisher Digital Sport – part of the Snack Media family of titles – and leading sports data analysis company Sportradar have announced a partnership to bring cutting-edge events to industry professionals in central London this autumn.

As the business of sport becomes ever more global and interconnected, it is crucial that organisations within the sector learn from each other to the benefit of everyone. With the digital media landscape revolutionising how sports fans consume, understand and connect with their sports, there are more opportunities than ever before for partnership and growth.

Together, Digital Sport and Sportradar will bring a series of insightful events to industry professionals in a relaxed setting in the heart of London. Aiming to answer questions and stimulate discussions about key topics the industry will have to face in the near future, the series will feature a host of speakers from key organisations within the sector and bring together the diverse strands of the industry at large.

In October, Sportradar and Digital Sport will explore what the rise of US sports in the UK means for the industry. In November, the series will move on to the new appetite for live-streaming and over-the-top platforms in sport – and how digital fan engagement will work in this maturing world of connected devices.

David Lampitt, Managing Director, Group Operations, Sportradar, said, “The sports media industry is one that’s constantly evolving and changing so it’s vital that all stakeholders continue to discuss, evaluate and engage with emerging trends alongside their peers. We’re looking forward to working with Digital Sport to provide a platform for these discussions as well as producing a series of thought-leadership pieces.”

Niall Coen, Founder and CEO, Snack Media added: “At Snack Media we’re committed to ensuring that the Digital Sport business continues to act as a hub for the sports industry in the UK. A key part of delivering that is partnering with other industry-leading organisations to present an events series bringing together some of the biggest names in the sector for discussion and idea-sharing. We are delighted to be working with Sportradar to further these aims.”
