STATS Insights leverages more than 37 years of research experience to
deliver deep historical and comparative statistical insights,
play-by-play descriptions and in-game trends based on events as they
happen in the match. Before, during and after each match, SpokeHub will
harness STATS Insights to amplify conversations among World Cup football
communities. During the game, live Insights will deliver trends on
players and teams based on in-game events, statistics and milestones.

“No sporting event gets global attention like the World Cup, and every
fan is looking for deeper analysis around their favorite teams and
players,” said Mike Rodriguez, Vice President of Account Management at
STATS. “STATS Insights taps into our extensive historical database to
uncover stories many fans may be missing. SpokeHub is a great fit to
feature STATS Insights because it engages with soccer fans in ways no
other social engagement platform can. We are excited to work with
SpokeHub and look forward to seeing more in-depth World Cup
conversations on its platform.”

The SpokeHub app features “Hubs” on the homepage that connect users with
the content that is most relevant to them. Hubs bring together
communities with real-time conversations around important trending
topics, like World Cup moments for each national team. The app features
built-in news and scoreboard updates and enhanced engagement features,
including polls and the first-ever AR chat experience.

“With the World Cup being the largest sporting event in the world,
SpokeHub is excited to partner with STATS to allow fans globally to
connect and engage utilizing our chat technology. This partnership is a
game changer to the World Cup fan experience as we know it – for the
first time ever we are connecting fans around the world in one unified
place.” – Robert Hartsfield, CEO of SpokeHub.
