Racing content and data services provider Sports Information Services (SIS) has confirmed that it has added a multi-year extension to its existing rights agreement with the German Tote.
The extended partnership will allow SIS to include coverage of German horseracing across all of its verticals, including retail and digital 24/7 channels, and to be sold as standalone content on a watch and bet or bet and watch basis for digital use.
Paul Witten, Product Director at SIS, commented: “We are delighted to extend our relationship more deeply with the German Tote for inclusion of their high-quality racing in all our services.
“This content sits very well within our overall portfolio, and its availability in the near future is sure to fill a significant gap for operators seeking betting content to fill any void whilst domestic racing is still in lockdown.”
It comes after the German government has relaxed some restrictions across the country following the COVID-19 lockdown. It has been suggested that German horseracing could resume as early as 1 May.
The deal initially covers all German thoroughbred racing with the option to extend to include harness racing in the future.
Riko Luiking, CEO at German Tote added: “SIS has proven to be a strong partner for German Tote, and we are very pleased to extend our relationship even further.”
