News Gathering From The Tournament

Unrivalled Football Expertise

Across our own channels and data editorial teams, no-one knows football better.

“I just wanted to say thanks very much for everything during Euro 2020. All the previews and post-match facts are always so useful for the live programmes.

 Likewise the specific research around individual games – even if it doesn’t get used it really helps us build a more detailed picture of what each team is doing.”
