STATS, Inc. (the company name is technically an acronym for "Sports Team Analysis and Tracking Systems") is a global sports statistics and information company. The company was founded in 1981, initially focusing on baseball statistics. In the 1990's, they expanded their focus to the NFL, NBA, NHL and many other sports.

In 1996, STATS won a court case, along with Motorola, on appeal against the NBA in which the NBA was trying to stop STATS from distributing in game score information via a special wireless device created by Motorola. The victory in this case plays a large part in defending other cases where sports leagues have tried to suppress live in-game information from their events being distributed by other outlets. [ [ NBA Lawsuit -] ]

The company is a joint venture between News Corporation and Associated Press holding 50% each after the merger of STATS Inc. with AP Megasports in 2005.
