Fragbite taps Abios as server data distribution partner
The companies have collaborated since 2017, with Abios supplying League of Legends and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) data to power Fragbite’s tournament and match calendars, and in-depth match statistics.
Fragbite chief executive Daniel Pereaux said he had been impressed by the development of Abios’ business and products over the course of their relationship to date.
He added that the expanded partnership would raise the standards of Fragleague tournaments, with customised gadgets and products created using Abios’ solutions.
Having launched in 2002, Fragbite is an established name in the Nordic esports space, with Fragleague comprising CS:GO, Valorant and PUBG tournaments.
“Being a Stockholm-based company, we’re excited to support the grassroots movement in Nordic esports,” Abios chief executive and founder Oskar Fröberg said. “Fragbite has a long history of supporting and providing content for Swedish esports fans and enthusiasts.
“We are happy to not only provide data and technology-solutions, but also be the exclusive rights-holder of their real-time tournament data. We very much look forward to building and offering a completely new set of products targeted specifically at the Nordic audience.”
The deal comes in the wake of Abios being acquired by sports betting technology provider Kambi in a deal worth up to SEK270m (£22.9m/€26.6m/$31.5m). Both Fröberg, and chief technology officer Anton Janer, are to remain in their roles once the transaction closes.
