In a multiyear partnership, leading esports tournament and league organiser ESEN eSports will be calling on Sportradar to collect and distribute audio-visual and data content across those competitions, including the King of Nordic tournament. Moreover, the partnership is underpinned by the fact that Sportradar’s award-winning Fraud Detection System will be monitoring all those competitions in order to identify any instances of match-fixing.
As part of the multi-year deal, Sportradar will be the exclusive worldwide provider of betting audio-visual streams and transmissions for matches played within ESEN eSports competitions. As one of the world’s leading suppliers of sports-related data and content, Sportradar will also distribute all the official data from the tournament organiser’s competitions.
A key pillar of the deal was the employment of Sportradar’s Fraud Detection System, which monitors and analyses betting patterns from over 600 operators around the world, including esports-only bookmakers.
ESEN eSports CEO Joakim Stenberg felt that this partnership was a great step forward for esports: “By establishing this partnership with Sportradar, we have developed a new source of revenue for the company but we have also unlocked a range of content opportunities that will increase insight and improve engagement in the matches and competitions we are hosting. I am especially proud to have put the Fraud Detection System in place. This is such a critical piece of the deal and will give priceless peace of mind to players, coaches and our spectators and fans wherever they are watching”.
Mark Balch, Esports Product Manager at Sportradar, added: “Following our award for Best Esports Supplier at the end of last year, we have seen a real spike in interest from both esports competitions organisers who want to get broad and credible engagement, as well as betting operators who want the richest mix of leagues, tournaments and competitions in their offering, safeguarded by our peerless Fraud Detection System. It is an exciting time in esports and we are delighted that key stakeholders in the esports ecosystem recongise our unique propsition and our commitment to safeguarding the integrity of all competitions we work with”.
