LONDON, Dec. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The UK football leagues including the Premier League via Football DataCo (FDC), and their official data partner, Genius Sports (GSG) are pleased that, whilst the Competition Appeal Tribunal (CAT) has decided today to retain jurisdiction over a dispute involving unauthorised football data collector, Sportradar, it has also recognised that claims concerning the private law rights of Genius Sports and DataCo, which will be heard in the High Court, are intertwined with this dispute and should be case managed together. Genius Sports looks forward to the issues being determined. Genius Sports' and DataCo's' connected arguments to be heard in the High Court concern Sportradar's alleged trespass, rights infringement and breach of contract. These are cases that centre on the funding of sport and football leagues' ability to participate in revenue from data collected on their events.
