Bayes Esports continues content-driven innovation with EFG partnership

Bayes Esports has been selected as the exclusive match data provider for several esports leagues, tournaments and events hosted by ESL FACEIT Group (EFG).

The strategic match data partnership will run until 2025 and will cover all ESL Pro Tour in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) competitions, ESL Impact and FACEIT Collegiate CS:GO Tournaments. This will be in addition to EFG’s Dota 2 properties.

Martin Dachselt, CEO & Managing Director of Bayes Esports, stated: “What a tremendous start we have had to 2023. To be able to make some many impactful announcements, one of which
being this absolutely momentous partnership with EFG, is incredible.

“Besides being a great sign for us that shows that we are on the right track and that what we are doing is catching on with the industry’s most important players, it’s also a clear statement towards the grey market of the esports data industry.”

This partnership will build upon a prior agreement between the two companies, which originally set out to build “match data infrastructure necessary for esports to reach its full potential”. Both Bayes Esports and EFG hope to use this renewed collaboration to professionalise esports as a whole.

Dachselt continued: “With the leader in competitive games and esports and data from over 12.000 matches by our side, we can move forward and continue to shape esports around official data, ensure the integrity of its biggest events and give those that hurt the long-term development of this industry through improper offerings no quarter.”

EFG will benefit from access to Bayes Esports’ existing technological product portfolio. The two companies will also work alongside one another to develop “best-in-class practices” to protect the integrity of esports. To do this, EFG will use the Bayes Esports’ premium integrity market monitoring and rightsholder protection.

“Over the last couple of years, we were able to establish uniform industry standards for official data together with Bayes Esports. Because of our joint initiatives, we are at the forefront of preserving and promoting integrity in esports,” said Bernhard Mogk, Senior Vice President of Global Business Development & Commercial Strategy at EFG.

“We are excited to continue our long-term strategic partnership and to keep on innovating in the area of data-driven content solutions to create additional value that will contribute to the long term commercial sustainability of the entire ecosystem.”
