ESIC has announced its first ever Data Partnership with global esports data provider, Esports Charts. This partnership signals a new trajectory for both organisations who will collaborate to develop a more sophisticated understanding of industry trends and behaviours. With the establishment of this partnership, Esports Charts hopes to support ESIC in its continued delivery of best practice standards and integrity frameworks for the broader esports industry.
As a Data Partner, Esports Charts will grant ESIC with access to its data for ESIC’s usage. Esports Charts will also collaborate with ESIC to publish periodic reports gauging particular data metrics related to integrity and industry risk. In addition, ESIC and Esports Charts will collaborate on several academic use cases for the Esports Charts data products, thereby augmenting data accessibility for academics interested in the esports field.
Esports Charts is an analytical data provider that collects, researches, processes and analyses data and statistics of live tournaments, real-time in-game events, players/teams’ performance, and even spectator reactions and emotional contexts. Esports Charts’ data helps sponsors, organisers and viewers by providing detailed statistics and analytics for tournaments, teams and organisations.
Stephen Hanna, ESIC’s Director of Global Partnerships, commented: “ESIC is happy to have Esports Charts join ESIC as a Data Partner. This partnership with Esports Charts will allow ESIC to tap into reliable data which will help ESIC stay informed about the industry trends relevant to its operations. Further to this, ESIC is looking forward to working with Esports Charts in order to augment academic prospects within the esports field through the facilitation of data accessibility. Data Partnerships like this one are vital to ESIC’s ongoing success.”
Ivan Danishevskyi, Founder of Esports Charts, said: “The integrity of data, protection of the market from fraud, systematization of information, favourable market growth, fair play – are the main tasks in the Esports Charts’ mission. And we are glad that ESIC is our teammate in these matters, who deeply shares all of them. By creating standards and best practices, together we kickstart esports to unprecedented heights!”
