Perform has agreed a new integrity partnership with real-time betting market consultancy TXODDS.
The companies will collaborate on a variety of projects focused on protecting the integrity of sports competitions and betting markets.
Perform and TXODDS will provide innovative new systems with access to additional intelligence and analysis to investigate matches on behalf of rights holders and sport governing bodies.
Ross MacEacharn, chief executive of Perform Content, said: “We are delighted to have partnered with TXODDS, the leaders in the betting odds data field. Having access to their market-leading data and insight is a great advantage for Perform in the development of our monitoring system.
“We are pleased to have supplemented our range of Integrity operations with a best-in-class system that can assist sports bodies’ efforts to protect the integrity of their sport.
“We also look forward to supporting the TXODDS roll out of additional integrity products for the betting sector.”
The Perform/TXODDS partnership has already led to the development of the proprietary and unique betting market monitoring system used by the Perform Integrity Unit.
It is powered by a bespoke volatility alerts feed, tailored to highlight potential irregularities in betting markets across a range of competitions. The feed is built using the Perform fast data service, RunningBall, the provider of real-time sports data to the betting industry, and TXODDS’ betting market data compiled from a range of global operators.
Einar Knobel, chief executive of TXODDS, said: “TXODDS is a trusted data source that understands the sports betting industry, making it our aim to protect it from any suspicious activity.
“We are very excited to be continuing our work with Perform, having already developed a system designed to detect, monitor and investigate activity to help in the challenge of maintaining the integrity of sporting competitions across the globe.
“We look forward to introducing our new integrity-led services with Perform, supplying the most reliable data to clients all over the world and leading the fight against corruption in sport.”
