Linius’s CEO Chris Richardson said: “We are increasingly seeing sports clubs and leagues globally acknowledge and appreciate the immense value that personalization can bring to their bottom line.

“Personalizing content for viewers and fans of sports simply creates a deeper engagement, with which new revenue opportunities become apparent for these businesses.
