Industry market insights provider H2 Gambling Capital has agreed to extend its ‘Global Betting Summary Dataset’ market data coverage to include data on suspicious betting reported by the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).
The new dataset tracks back to 2017 when 266 alerts were logged, to the 183 reported last year. H2 updates its breakdown coverage on a quarterly basis, categorising data by continent, country and sport.
Tennis and football are currently the most targeted sports by match-fixers making up around 80% of all IBIA cases, albeit there have been alerts reported on 15 sports in total during 2017-19.
David Henwood, Director at H2, commented: “We are committed to providing the best independent data and market commentary there is within the sector. We also want to highlight best practice where we see it, particularly when it comes to developing a safe betting environment in both sport and gambling regulation.
“IBIA is world-leading in its work and a quality data provider in its own right so showcasing these numbers to our H2 Subscribers is a natural extension of our partnership going forward.”
IBIA CEO Khalid Ali added: “The association is delighted to extend its ongoing collaboration with H2 and to be able to add its suspicious betting alert data to H2’s leading market analysis and intelligence.
“As membership of the association continues to grow, so does its global market coverage, with IBIA data representing the most accurate picture of the impact of corruption on regulated betting markets. I hope that all H2 subscribers engaged in sports and/or the betting arena will find this data of interest.”
