Sport directly or indirectly affects the lives of millions of people daily around the world.
In many sports, series play a central role. This means that the actual series layout is extremely important for various stakeholders such as teams, fans, TV companies and security authorities – in other words, the quality of a game schedule has a great impact on both the league / league and the team’s finances!
TV companies and sponsors are often willing to pay a higher price if the game program meets their wishes, for example that audience matches and the derby are scheduled on attractive days or that matches between certain teams are to be spread over the season or played during specific rounds. These wishes are also important for fans when deciding on ticket purchases.
For the team, it is important that the game program is fair, ie the number of breaks is evenly distributed and that, for example, you do not start or end a series with one break (two home or away matches in a row).
A well-developed optimized gaming program can, in addition to reduced travel costs, lead to a higher interest among fans and audiences, which in turn contributes to higher audience revenues and greater opportunities to attract sponsors and partners!
