The International Hockey Federation (FIH) has extended its data partnership with AltiusRT until the end of 2019.

The collaboration will see all hockey data continue to be captured through a safe database system provided by the sports technology firm.

AltiusRT has been a partner of the FIH since 2013.

FIH Chief Executive Officer, Thierry Weil, said: “We are delighted to continue our relationship with AltiusRT. With more than 1,200 matches taking place each year, the amount of data being captured is huge, therefore it was important that we continued with a partner that we trust.”

He continued: “With an increasing demand for data, whether through social media or in our broadcasts, our data capture provider will play an important role in keeping our fans updated with the latest results and in preserving our sports historical records.

“With some extremely high profile competitions on the horizon, including the FIH Pro League and the Hockey Series, it is important that we capitalise on data in order to bring our sport to life.”

Hari Kant, President of AltiusRT, added: “We have worked with the FIH to provide the exact features needed to make hockey statistics come alive. We look forward to building on our productive relationship as we move towards some incredibly exciting events coming up over the next two years.”
