Genius Sports, the global leader in the capture, distribution and commercialisation of live sports data, has expanded its presence in Bulgaria with a new 400-capacity office in Sofia.
The new office will act as the nerve centre for Genius Sports’ data collection and monitoring operations, building cutting-edge software that underpins its strategy of representing official data rights and monetising them on behalf of sports.
Genius Sports is the proud official data partner of the Bulgarian Football Union along with the Bulgarian and Volleyball and Basketball Federations. Around the world, it helps more than 500 leagues and federations unlock the value of their live data in the betting and media sectors, including the English Premier League, Serie A, the NBA and FIBA.
Located just off Tsarigradsko Shose, next to The Mall shopping centre, the office provides a collaborative and creative space across two floors, complete with mini golf, games rooms, indoor basketball, a terrace complete with hammocks, library and TV rooms, while staff can travel around the office by micro scooter.
Stephen Gardner, Chief Services and Delivery Officer at Genius Sports Group, said:
“Genius Sports first invested into Bulgaria four years ago and we haven’t looked back. The talent we’ve been able to attract has been hugely impressive, building one of our largest global locations and continually enhancing business-critical services that are used by the largest brands in sports and betting.”
