FaceIt have partnered with Genius Esports. This move comes in the wake of Faceit trying to increase its fan engagement and following on a new streaming platform: Youtube Gaming.
What is Genius Esports?
The global leader in sports data technology and integrity services have forged a partnership to enhance the way data and statistics are used to interact with fans.
Genius Sports, the trusted partner of global sports federations and leagues that include the English Premier League, LaLiga and AFC, have developed a CSGO analytics platform that provides real-time data-driven predictions. ECS will also benefit from Genius Sports’ eSports Bet Monitoring System to monitor betting markets in real-time and alert ECS to any unusual market patterns, as well as educational workshops conducted by the Genius Sports team.
The powerful modelled solution was in part developed in response to concerns about match-fixing and skin betting, which remains an unregulated environment in esports. Genius Sports assists many esports betting sites across the esports industry.
Michele Attisani, Chief Business Officer and Co-founder of FACEIT :
We are very aware of the challenges all leagues face as the industry grows and we felt this was a logical next step to safeguard our fans and stakeholders. Genius Sports is the trusted and go-to platform for all major sports leagues, their unrivalled experience in this sector alongside the newly developed technology specifically designed for CS:GO makes them an integral partner for ECS as the league continues to grow.”
This move comes at time when Faceit is looking to increase its fan engagement. They will rely on the services of Genius Esports to help them in this regard.
