Data and AI technology company Stats Perform has announced a multi-year extension with the digital sports entertainment and gaming provider DraftKings.
The deal provides DraftKings access to Stats Perform’s sports data feeds for use in its daily fantasy sports (DFS) contests and DK Live, the company’s play-by-play fantasy app.
