PvPRO agrees streaming deal with Sportradar

5 September 2017

Esports platform PvPRO has entered into a partnership with Sportradar.

Under the deal, Sportradar will distribute the audiovisual streams and data from all upcoming PvPRO competitions on an exclusive, worldwide basis.

Sportradar’s Integrity Services will monitor betting patterns from all relevant bookmakers and operators around the world to help identify suspicious betting activity related to PvPRO events.

In addition, Sportradar will employ its Fraud Detection System across PvPRO’s various CS:GO games, tournaments and leagues.

“Launching our first stop of our first ESG Tour is a super exciting development for us and we are delighted to have secured the involvement of top CS:GO teams such as SK, Virtus.pro and mousesports,” PvPRO chief executive Stamos Venios said.

“Securing Sportradar’s support and expertise was really important to the credibility and distribution of the Tour and as we start this journey, we could not be happier to have Sportradar by our side.”

James Watson, head of esports at Sportradar added: “Tournament organisers in the esports ecosystem are getting savvier about the opportunities and threats that they now face as interest and investment grows.

“Dealing with Stamos and his team has been a pleasure, as they really get what is at stake and we are really proud that they chose to trust us, our experience and our relationships to help them take the ESG Tour and their growing competition portfolio to the next level.”
