Esports betting services provider Oddin.gg has announced a data rights partnership with tournament organiser PGL for the upcoming Major Copenhagen 2024.
Oddin.gg will offer its data-focused products including odds, risk management tools and services, esports-centric iFrame, and comprehensive widgets.
In addition, the company will offer its API and trading stream to partners that want to utilise the data within Oddin’s infrastructure. Interestingly the partnership marks Oddin.gg’s foray in the official esports data market.
Previously the company has teamed up with game data platform GRID for competitions such as Dota 2’s Dota Pro Circuit.
The PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 will be the first Counter-Strike Major since the game’s transition from Counter-Strike 2 to CS:GO. Taking place in March 2024, the PGL-run event will feature 24 teams and a $1.25m (~£980,000) prize pool.
Commenting on the collaboration, Marek Suchar, Managing Director and Co-founder at Oddin.gg, said: “We are thrilled to be pushing the boundaries once again, and doing what others are not capable of doing: finally directly connecting two worlds we deeply care about. On one hand, we have PGL, the apex of esports, renowned for its elite production quality, premier tournaments, and unparalleled viewership.
“On the other, there’s a roster of our esteemed clients like Betway, Stake, Yolo, Altenar, Betby, among many others. We’re thrilled to bridge these worlds, leveraging data from the first ever Counter-Strike 2 Major to enhance fan engagement through dynamic odds and interactive widgets.”
PGL, Silviu Stroie CEO, added in the announcement that the company’s new partnership with Oddin.gg aims to “harness the full potential of our esports data” through fan engagement avenues and innovations.
Oddin.gg currently has official betting supplier licences in New Jersey, Colorado, Ontario, with the company stating that it is in the process of acquiring more licences in the US. This year has seen the esports betting services provider Kazakhstan bookmaker Olimpbet and Serbian sportsbook MerkurXTIP.
