Genius Sports Group, the global leader in digital sports content, technology and integrity services, has been named in the fourth edition of the Financial Times’ FT 1000.

Produced in partnership with leading data provider Statista, the FT 1000 recognises Europe’s fastest growing companies, celebrating significant revenue growth between the years 2015 and 2018.

Genius Sports Group was in the top 50 UK-based businesses and the only sports tech company to be named in the 2020 list which can be viewed here. Its software is used in over 150 countries worldwide, capturing split-second data and streams to power advanced solutions for hundreds of sports leagues, licensed bookmakers and brands.

Mark Locke, CEO of Genius Sports Group, commented: “Being nominated by the Financial Times as one of Europe’s fastest growing companies is testament to four years of unprecedented growth for Genius Sports Group. Over the past five years, we have built strong, long-term partnerships with world renowned sports leagues and federations, media networks and listed betting companies.

“In 2018, Genius Sports Group’s aggressive growth culminated in the acquisition of the company by Apax Partners, one of the world’s largest private equity firms. We are proud of what we have achieved to date and are passionate about being the most trusted and respected sports data and technology company in the world.”
