Futsal Ekstraklasa, Poland’s top flight of futsal has signed an agreement with STATSCORE, the biggest sports data provider, under which the company based in Katowice will become the naming rights sponsor of the competition. The league will be from now on officially named STATSCORE Futsal Ekstraklasa.
Having a titular sponsor is a major step in the professionalisation and development of any league with great ambitions – and it’s no different in this case. After having expanded the media coverage of its matches, and having employed professionally delivered official statistics in the previous season (provided by STATSCORE), Poland’s top futsal league has just made another important step.
– We started the talks a year ago. From the very beginning, we’ve wanted to build the future together. The first stage consisted in providing the league with statistics, which always add value to a competition. Today we have shown that we want to move in the right direction together, despite the difficult times. Thank you very much for putting your trust in the Futsal Ekstraklasa. I know that we’ve been appreciated for our work during recent years when we have been noticed as a developing brand in the Polish market. STATSCORE has chosen us, despite the attempts made by other competitions in Poland. This is a great distinction – said Maciej Karczyński, chairman of the Futsal Ekstraklasa.
As the titular sponsor, STATSCORE will not only be included in the name of the competition, but it will also be integrated into the league’s new logo, which will be displayed on the competition’s website, clubs’ shirts and in numerous places within the halls where the matches are played.
The choice of Futsal Ekstraklasa as the first Polish professional sports league to which STATSCORE will lend its name hasn’t been accidental. A dynamic company from Silesia is one of the global leaders in the field of providing statistics and advanced widgets for sports organisations, media outlets and bookmakers. For years, it has been focusing on innovation, for which it has been repeatedly appreciated by industry experts, as evidenced by prestigious awards, such as Deloitte’s Rising Star in 2017, and Technology Fast 50 CE as one of the 50 best-growing technology companies in Central Europe in 2019. The dynamically developing Futsal Ekstraklasa, which also aims to become one of the most major sports leagues, turned out to be a perfect partner.
– Together with our partners, we want to build the world’s biggest sports data center, where we will collect all the statistics, thus helping sports fans and organisations to derive even greater joy and higher benefits from sport. This is our vision! This is the reason for which STATSCORE exists. Extending the cooperation with Futsal Ekstraklasa gives great satisfaction to me and to the whole team. It is also a huge challenge, but having such an experienced and well-balanced team, and a Partner who wants to develop with us, I’m sure that we will once again show our strength. I believe that together we will raise the STATSCORE Futsal Ekstraklasa to the world’s top level, providing fans with numerous innovative solutions – summed up Tomasz Myalski, founder and CEO of STATSCORE.
From the 2020/21 season on, STATSCORE will not just continue to deliver exhaustive statistics from all the games of the Futsal Ekstraklasa, but it will also support the league with its experience and expertise in this field.
