FIBA, basketball’s international governing body, has expanded its long-term partnership with Genius Sports, the international sports data technology company, until 2035.

Under the terms of the new agreement, Genius Sports has been selected as FIBA’s official data and video capture and production partner, as well as the federation’s official innovation and technology services partner from 2025 for a 10-year term.

Through the renewed agreement, Genius will provide AI-powered technology, automating official data collection, live video production, and optical player tracking for leagues and national federations globally.

The technology will also provide users access to coaching tools and analytics, automated officiating, and broadcast augmentation tools.

The new technology will “transform the entire data and video ecosystem of international basketball, providing a unified, connected solution to automate and synchronize the collection of live game statistics and video production with advanced player tracking.”

Genius Sports has had a partnership with FIBA since 2004 and the two parties have provided over 200 leagues and national federations worldwide with both the FIBA LiveStats and FIBA Organizer offerings, “helping to collect official play-by-play statistics and drive digital transformation at all levels.”
