Sportradar Expands on Maine’s Sports Betting Market

Sportradar Group AG, a leader in sports data and content, has reached a significant milestone with its U.S. betting subsidiary, Sportradar Solutions LLC, being granted a temporary Sports Betting Supplier License in Maine by the Maine Gambling Control Unit (MGCU).

This achievement, announced on November 1, marks Sportradar’s continued expansion in the North American sports betting landscape.

Strengthening Presence in North America

With the addition of the Maine license, Sportradar now holds a total of 53 licenses or equivalents across various jurisdictions in North America, including U.S. states, territories, tribes, and Canada.

This extensive licensing underlines Sportradar’s commitment to providing high-quality, reliable sports data and services to a wide range of clients within these areas.

The company’s role in enhancing the sports betting and gaming industry, while promoting transparency and integrity, is further solidified by this expansion.

Impact of Maine’s Sports Betting Launch

The launch of both retail and online sports wagering in Maine on November 3 represents a broader movement in the U.S. towards legal sports betting. With Maine’s entry, sports betting is now legal and operational in 37 U.S. states, including the District of Columbia.

This development not only reflects the growing acceptance and legalization of sports betting across the United States but also presents new opportunities for companies like Sportradar to extend their services and influence in the market.
