The Background

 

Part of the Sporting Group, Sporting Solutions is the premium supplier and market leader for odds provision, trading expertise and risk management services. We were born from Sporting Index – the global leader in trading the most volatile form of sports betting since 1992 – and for the past decade have been leveraging this capability to deliver a best-of-breed b2b proposition.

 

Today, our dedicated technical team of modellers and programmers support a trading operation more than one-hundred heads, with multiple offices across the UK, Canada and South Africa. We are united by a passion for sports betting and a desire to do things differently, whether it’s the software solutions we build or the relationships we develop.  It’s why we’re now a trusted partner to more than 40 operators in regulated markets, including many of the best-known bookmakers in the UK and internationally.

Our digital products power some of the largest sports betting operators in Europe and North America, plus the fixed odds offering of Sporting Index in the ultra-competitive UK market. The success of these products is at the heart of our ambitious strategy to expand into newly regulating markets, particularly the North American market, so that our sportsbook experience is accessible to prospective partners as a suite of modular, highly differentiated products and services.
