GRID Esports, a Game Data Platform and a long-standing partner of renowned gaming companies such as Riot Games, Krafton, WePlay, and BLAST, has received the International Betting Integrity Association’s (IBIA) industry accreditation relating to the quality of data collection and distribution in sports betting. Sportradar and Stats Perform are two firms that have previously received IBIA accreditation.
The GRID was recognized after passing an independent audit undertaken by the eCommerce and Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA), an organization specializing in the testing, inspection, and certification of online gambling software and systems.
Accredited firms must adhere to the IBIA’s requirements to ensure high levels of accuracy and openness. The standards are divided into three sections: people screening and training, data collection methods, and data integrity and reporting.
CEO of IBIA, Khalid Ali, said:
“This is an important milestone in the evolution of the Data Standards accreditation with GRID being the first esports-focused data company achieving the accreditation. It recognises a high level of integrity in the collation and distribution of esports data by GRID, which in turn gives an important reassurance to those parties wishing to utilise that data that it is of a high level of reliability and accuracy. It is essential that consumers have confidence in the integrity of the product and of the data supply chain creating that product.”
Mikael Westerling, CSO at GRID Esports, added:
“GRID has been created upon the conviction that official data assets should be standard in gaming and esports. For the past four years, we have been building and improving our technology to ensure that the quality of our service, reliability of data, and level of support we offer to our partners enable the sustainable growth of the industry we are passionate about. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and being awarded the IBIA accreditation is a testimony to the hard work of our team and a great motivation to strive for excellence.”
