Esports Integrity Commission signs Pandascore as latest data partner

| By Robert Fletcher
Esports data provider Pandascore has agreed a deal to become an official data partner of the Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC).

Pandascore will work with ESIC and its network of members to identify and investigate suspicious betting behaviour in the esports market.

This will see Pandascore contribute to the monitoring of betting market behaviours in order to uncover data-driven insights, with the aim of supporting ESIC’s ongoing risk monitoring activities.

Founded in 2015, PandaScore provides esports data and odds to Entain brands Ladbrokes and Neds, as well as Betcris, CSGOEmpire, CSGO500 and Pixel.bet. PandaScore also has a distribution partnership in place with Scientific Games.

“Through the power of high-quality data, we hope to be a key contributor to the successful implementation of ESIC’s Global Integrity Framework, ensuring the sustainable growth of our burgeoning esports industry,” Pandascore chief executive Flavien Guillocheau said.

ESIC director of global strategy and partnerships Stephen Hanna added: “Reliable data is at the centre of ESIC’s ability to effectively administer its integrity programme. 

“Partnering with reliable data providers that possess an integrity mindset, like Pandascore, is a step towards more effective administration of a global integrity framework.”

Last month, ESIC also announced esports odds and risk management supplier Oddin as an anti-corruption supporter.
