Opta data’s key strength is the ability to provide in-depth, accessible data that is consistent across the globe.

Opta debuted its current real-time data collection process for football matches in 2006, leading to an expansion in new data offerings across different sports. In 2011, the company entered the US market when it opened an office in New York and partnered with Major League Soccer. The company was sold to Perform Group in 2013 for £40 million.
