Sports data specialist Sportradar has agreed a multi-year partnership with Stockholm-listed eSports tournament and league organiser ESEN eSports.

Sportradar will become the exclusive worldwide supplier of betting audio-visual streams and transmissions for all of ESEN eSports matches, while distributing official data from events such as the popular King of Nordic tournament.

ESEN will also utilise Sportradar's Fraud Detection System to monitor betting patterns across its competitions.

"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," said ESEN eSports chief executive Joakim Stenberg.

"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."

Sportradar eSports product manager Mark Balch commented: "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 recognise our unique proposition and our commitment to safeguarding the integrity of all competitions we work with."
