2. Bundesliga Extends Contract with Pointstreak
Feb 20, 2008
Successful launch of Pointstreak’s German language system for the 2007/2008 season results in continued relationship.
2. Bundesliga is part of the Eishockeyspielbetriebsgesellschaft (ESBG), the German hockey organization, and consists of fourteen franchise teams throughout Germany. Prior to deals with the Deutsche Eishockey Liga (DEL) and 2. Bundesliga, Pointstreak’s system was available only in English and in Russian. For the 2007/2008 season, Pointstreak developed the capability to support the German language within its real-time scoring system. Being among the first elite European leagues to use Pointstreak for the 2007/2008 season, 2. Bundesliga expressed high satisfaction with the performance of Pointstreak’s real-time scoring and league management system.
"We commend the 2. Bundesliga for taking a leadership role in adopting Pointstreak for its 2007/2008 season and we thank them for their continued vote of confidence" said Ken Cook, CEO of Pointstreak, “We believe that our proven relationships with the elite German hockey leagues demonstrate Pointstreak’s dedication to our European clients as well as our ability to handle multiple languages.”
