Jan 23, 2018

Reuters, an international multimedia news provider, announced that customers will now have access to expanded sports content through partnerships with Field Level Media and Opta. The new content from Field Level Media and Opta add to Reuters’ existing suite of global sports coverage. The addition of Field Level Media brings Reuters News Agency customers added breaking news, recaps, roundups, analysis, and player notes across sports events in North America, including NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, NASCAR, golf leagues, tennis, UFC, and more. Opta, part of the premium sports content firm Perform Group, will provide live, detailed data across global leagues and competitions (including major U.S. sports) that will power Reuters’ multimedia sports coverage and real-time results, expanding on an existing content partnership with Perform’s video and editorial syndication service, Omnisport.

The enhanced content is now available on Reuters Connect – the dynamic multimedia content marketplace launched in 2017 – and other Reuters News Agency products.

The new partnerships usher in an exciting year in sports for Reuters, with the Winter Olympics and the FIFA World Cup happening just months apart. The Winter Olympics begin in Pyeongchang on February 9 and the FIFA World Cup begins in Russia on June 14. Reuters planned coverage for both tournaments includes on-site breaking news reporting, match and competition recaps, picture coverage from every event, broadcast and digital video showcasing the sites and sounds of the tournaments, and a suite of ready-to-publish graphic.
