SIS (Sports Information Services), the international multi-channel supplier of live betting services, enters the Australian market through a partnership with Sportsbet, the country’s biggest online bookmaker.
Sportsbet, which is owned by the Flutter Group, will now be able to add greyhound racing events from the United Kingdom and Ireland to its portfolio thanks to the deal with Sports Information Services.
The content from SIS will also be shown throughout Australia on Tabcorp’s (TAB) SKY Racing network and in the TAB app. The new greyhound offering will feature up to 53 meetings every week, taking place on famous British tracks including Central Park, Towcester, Crayford, Doncaster, Harlow, Henlow, Hove, Monmore and Romford. The platform will also include Irish events from Cork, Youghal, Kilkenny, Limerick, Mullingar, Tralee and Waterford.
This move by Sports Information Services follows a recent agreement that the company reached with Racecourse Media Group to deliver British and Irish horse racing to Sportsbet, the biggest online bookmaker in Australia.
Sportsbet Australia started out in 1994, then went online in 1999 and was acquired by Paddy Power in 2009. In 2015, Paddy Power and Betfair merged and formed Flutter Entertainment plc, which continues to operate Sportsbet.
