Opta also understand that the way sports fans watch a sport is changing and that live consumption across multiple platforms is now commonplace. Recent research by MRM London suggests that over 33% of fans use a second screen during their consumption of sport.
Done well, a second screen proposition can add life and longevity to the discussion around a match. This all helps extend the life cycle of a match and the engagement in the league, creating talking points that can last long after the final whistle has blown.
