Club Statement: Comsec Spot Checks

11 August 2019
We are currently liaising with a supporter who encountered a spot check from Comsec with regards to unauthorised data gathering at Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Reading at the KCOM Stadium.

Comsec are hired by Football Data Co to monitor the collection and distribution of Official Data. On request from the EFL the Club accredited Comsec to do spot checks at yesterday’s match.

We are currently working with the Superstadium Management Company, Comsec and the EFL to understand how this check was handled, and to understand how we can improve the Comsec Data Scouts Enforcement Programme at our stadium, and ultimately therefore the supporter experience moving forward.
