Game data company GRID Esports has secured a partnership with esports betting data provider DATA.BET.

As part of the long-term deal, GRID will provide DATA.BET with official data assets to help improve its offerings to esports betting operators.

Since GRID entered a two-year partnership with Riot Games in 2022, it will also be able to offer DATA.BET data from all of VALORANT’s main global and regional tournaments. The company also recently extended its partnership with esports betting platform Pinnacle for the fifth year, working out a similar arrangement.

In addition, GRID is known for teaming up with other prominent betting platforms and bookmakers, including the likes of Parimatch, GG.BET and bet365, among others.

On the other hand, DATA.BET announced a partnership with esports data supplier Bayes Esports a few days ago. This collaboration will see DATA.BET utilise official live game data provided by Bayes Esports to offer its partners an improved number of covered events and better data accuracy.
