The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has announced that Sportsflare, the betting arm of Tiidal Gaming Group, will join more than forty other ESIC anti-corruption supporters around the world, assisting the organization in investigating suspicious betting activity across numerous platforms. Sportsflare will also aim to work against match-fixing and betting fraud within the esports industry.
“Anti-corruption supporters like Sportsflare greatly assist ESIC in investigating suspicious betting activity, assisting up in ESIC’s greater fight against cheating and corruption across esports,” said Ian Smith, Commissioner at ESIC.
Recently, ESIC had 35 North American esports players investigated for match-fixing, and the entity is currently working with Riot Games to find players that switched from CS:GO to VALORANT. ESIC also issued a 2-year ban to former HEROIC coach Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen for sharing strategies with opponents ahead of IEM Cologne 2021.
Sportsflare works with sportsbook operators and igaming-related businesses, offering a range of products including an esports odds feed, bet builder, and other widgets.
