Sports technology company Sportradar has deepened its relationship with South American soccer’s Conmebol after securing exclusive global audio and video (AV) and betting data rights to the governing body’s club competitions for the next four seasons.
The agreement covers betting rights for the major regional club tournaments including the top-tier men’s and women’s Libertadores, second-tier Sudamericana, and the Recopa Sudamericana – all pan-continental competitions.
It marks the first time that domestic AV betting rights for Conmebol club competitions have been offered in the region.
The deal also adds to Sportradar’s existing betting rights in the region, which include Conmebol’s Libertadores U20, men’s and women’s Libertadores Futsal, and Libertadores Beach Soccer.
Conmebol secretary general José Astigarraga said: “We are glad to strengthen the relationship with Sportradar, one of the best companies in terms of technological innovation and transparency in global sports betting.
“We are sure that the prestigious Conmebol club tournaments, with more than 60 years of history, will be a great showcase to be able to get closer to the true fans of South American football.”
