Also in his communiqué, Locke reiterated certain “core principles” that will form the basis of his approach to 2022. These include: the need to drive operational excellence in all businesses, aiming for sustainable growth; communicate clearly and maintain a focus on creating long-term shareholder value.

The news comes days after Genius Sports confirmed it will partner with the Canadian Football League (CFL), in a move that will expand its portfolio of data rights, which it will market and sell around the world.
The deal will allow Genius Sports to leverage CFL’s digital infrastructure, including increased live game streaming, advanced data tracking tools, highly targeted fan engagement solutions and cross-platform streaming capabilities.
