As a result of the agreement, Abios will distribute official server data from Fragleague, Fragbite’s CS:GO tournament series, to ‘relevant stakeholders’ in the industry.
According to the release, Abios has provided esports data to Fragbite for League of Legends and CS:GO since 2017. The data has helped fuel Fragbite’s tournament and match calendars, as well as the platform’s match statistics.
Oskar Fröberg, CEO and Founder of Abios, commented: “Being a Stockholm-based company, we’re excited to support the grassroots movement in nordic esports. 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.”
In addition to Fragleague, Abios has also secured data rights partnerships with tournament organisers such as Elitserien’s Area Academy and King of Nordic’s ESEN. In August, sports betting service provider Kambi Group acquired Abios for up to £22m.
Daniel Pereaux, CEO of Fragbite, added: We have a long and good relationship with Abios and we are impressed by the development of their business and product. As the leading league in the Nordics, we always aim to offer our community the best possible experience.
“This data collaboration will lift the Fragleague production even further with customised gadgets and products from the Abios system.”
Esports Insider says: Given Fragbite’s existing partnership with Abios, it’s not a surprise to see the data platform secure a deal for the Fragleague. It’ll be interesting to see where the data will be distributed and what Abios classes as a ‘relevant stakeholder’.
