The acquisition and integration are a result of Stats Perform’s strategic focus on fan engagement and helping clients succeed in a highly competitive sports media market.

Many teams, leagues, and media companies face the same challenge of capturing, engaging, and grabbing fans’ attention across different mediums, including social media, broadcast, stadium screens, or scoreboards. Visualisations combined with data and insights are critical to success, however, creating those graphics and integrating them with data is not an easy task. PressBox Graphics, powered by Stats Perform’s best-in-class Opta sports data and most advanced AI, empowers users to produce these graphics in just seconds.
The addition of PressBox Graphics to the PressBox platform follows the launch of PressBox Live and PressBox Video earlier this year – meaning in-play storytelling, video discovery and now visual content creation are all accessible via a single platform.
“We are excited to have PressBox Graphics join the PressBox platform, not only is this enabling high speed production of stunning visuals, but it is now easier for our clients to leverage the entire PressBox suite of products, all powered by the world’s best sport’s data and AI. Says Nancy Hensley, Chief Product and Marketing Officer at Stats Perform. “Content is king, and time is money, with PressBox Graphics, we can address both challenges.”
