ZUG, Switzerland and CHICAGO, May 07, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infront Bettor, the betting-focused division of Infront, and Rush Street Interactive Inc (NYSE: RSI) (“RSI”), one of the leading operators in the Americas and the online operator of BetRivers in North America and RushBet in Latin America, have entered into a strategic partnership.

The new agreement covers Infront’s extensive portfolio, including access to the official fast path data of all International Tennis Federation (ITF) events, exclusively distributed by Infront Bettor from 2025. Official feed data directly from the umpires chair will be made available for over 58,000 matches from the Men’s and Women’s World Tennis Tour, the Billie Jean King Cup and the Davis Cup. The corresponding video streams will also be distributed for a large portion of these matches.

The deal also covers Infront’s wider streaming portfolio from more than 40 global rights holders across soccer, basketball and ice hockey. This includes top European soccer competitions such as France’s Ligue 1 Uber Eats from the 2024/25 season and premium ice hockey tournaments such as the IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.

Diogo Almeida, Head of Sales, Infront Bettor, said: “Our venture into the US betting landscape marks a significant milestone for the bold plans we have for Infront Bettor, and partnering with a key player, like RSI, in the industry is obviously the best way to significantly bolster our presence in this rapidly expanding market. It also ensures that fans have unmatched access to top-tier global sports events, which will be perfectly complemented with 24/7 betting opportunities through our partnership with the ITF.”

Richard Schwartz, CEO Rush Street Interactive, said: “This partnership is a pivotal step for us in enhancing our offering to make sure we have premium and round-the-clock coverage for our customers. We are also very proud to continue to deliver the ITF to our bettors through next year, offering an enhanced tennis package that will see us consume more events than ever before. We know Infront has plans to offer a more immersive tennis betting experience, adding supplementary betting markets through collecting level 2 and level 3 data, and we look forward to seeing these come to life next year.”
