FantasyData

FantasyData was created by CEO Scott Gimpel out of necessity when a need for sports data feeds on a different project was met with a lack of market options and steep pricing for start-ups from incumbent competitors. Our first few years in operation were marked with slow organic growth by providing NFL feeds to various fantasy companies. Starting in 2013, FantasyData made a push into the global sports data market by launching new sports and more comprehensive coverage. Today, we provide general and fantasy-specific feeds for all major professional and college sports, golf, NASCAR and top domestic & international soccer leagues. Headquartered in Philadelphia PA, FantasyData is privately held and debt-free, servicing more than 150 clients globally from fantasy & gaming to mobile, web and broadcasting industries.
