The acquisition is aimed at accelerating the growth and development of its FanCode’s multi-sports research and statistics service for all sports fans.
Founded by Viswanath K and Ramkumar V in 2019, FanDuniya provides statistics assistance for fantasy sports players.
At present, FanCode provides access to sports data and statistics to sports fans and fantasy sports users through Fantasy Research Hub (FRH).
“We are happy to merge FanDuniya’s expertise and services with FanCode’s sports data and statistics offering including the FRH. In a short period, FanDuniya saw organic growth and favour among the fantasy sports users’ community. Being at the intersection of sports and technology, this strategic integration will help FanCode to scale our sports data and statistics offering and build a robust research and tech team,” said Prasana Krishnan, co-founder, FanCode.
As part of its sports data and statistics offering, FanCode provides access to information and data on sports leagues, teams and players for sports fans and fantasy sports users. This includes match previews, venue details, pitch reports, weather forecasts, player performances and post-match analysis.
It also has about 20 experts on-board across sports categories to provide data and predictions through a detailed analysis of players and teams, supplemented by video representation, infographics, and even blogs as official authors.
FanCode believes that while the fantasy sports industry has grown, there is a dearth of organised and reliable sports data and statistics platforms in the market for sports fans to access, which is where the acquisition of FanDuniya will add value.
Ramkumar V added, “Sports fans are deeply engaged and constantly looking to equip themselves with in-depth understanding and knowledge of the sport they love. FanDuniya was founded with the idea to provide best-in class stats and research to fantasy sports users. FanDuniya’s business proposition and expertise fits perfectly with FanCode’s aim to provide credible and comprehensive sports data and statistics. Synergising our services, FanCode will become a single destination for sports fans providing comprehensive and authentic sports statistics, analysis, expert views, prediction and much more.”
Since the launch in 2019, FanCode claims to garner over 15 million users. It has launched interactive live streaming of matches with multimedia commentary, live scores, news on the sports industry across the globe, bite-sized video content like match highlight packages, chat shows with sports personalities in a new-age format, fantasy sports research and expert opinions.
