Genius Sports announced Tuesday a new agreement with the Philadelphia Eagles to deliver data to the team’s sports betting partners at Lincoln Financial Field.

The NFL’s distributor of official play-by-play statistics, Next Gen Stats and real-time sports betting data, Genius Sports is expected to help drive fan engagement within the stadium’s sports betting lounges, providing real-time betting odds, scores and player statistics.

The new partnership for Pennsylvania sports betting will begin on Oct. 14 when the Eagles host the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quarterback Tom Brady.

The Eagles have three sports betting partnerships with sportsbooks — Unibet PA (announced October 2019), FOX Bet PA (September 2020) and DraftKings PA (October 2020).

“Tapping into and utilizing Genius Sports’ cutting-edge technology at Lincoln Financial Field will contribute to the world-class experience that we always seek to provide our fans on game day,” Catherine Carlson, senior vice president of revenue and strategy for the Eagles, said in the release. “We would like to thank Genius Sports for leveraging their industry-leading data platform in this way and for driving innovation that is creating a more enhanced game experience for fans everywhere.”

Fans at Eagles games will also have access to betting offers from the team’s sportsbook partners via QR codes displayed on screens before and during games, the release said.

“Providing new and innovative platforms for teams to engage with legalized sports betting is a fundamental part of our NFL partnership,” Josh Linforth, managing director of media and engagement for Genius Sports, said in the release. “We’re very proud to be working with the Philadelphia Eagles, activating their in-stadia partnerships through official data, real-time odds and offers as well as league-wide scores.”
