Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Dimayor, the leading football competition organiser in Colombia and one of the largest in Latin America, announced a new partnership with Genius Sports to provide the league with an unprecedented level of protection against match-fixing and betting-related corruption.

This new partnership will review and strengthen Dimayor’s integrity policies, including its rules around insider information and structures for running investigations, implementing international best practices, regulations and procedures.

Dimayor will also benefit from essential visibility over global betting on its games through Genius Sports’ Bet Monitoring System. By comparing real-time odds movements from regulated and unregulated betting markets with predictive algorithms and key intelligence from bookmakers, this technology will automatically flag any potentially suspicious betting activity.

Genius Sports’ integrity leadership team will also conduct a series of educational workshops with Dimayor’s players, coaches and officials, reinforcing the new rules and regulations and emphasising the potential consequences of match-fixing.

To support its enhanced integrity strategy and enhance the value of its official data, Dimayor will work alongside Genius Sports to control the collection and distribution of its live statistics. Unauthorised or illegitimate data sources on Dimayor games will be identified and disrupted, providing complete transparency and control as well as a global audience to engage.

Jorge Enrique Velez, President of Dimayor, commented: “Dimayor is committed to the integrity of football and transparency around our competitions. This is why the arrival of Genius Sports is a demonstration of our interest in tracking betting in Colombian Professional Football, through monitoring and market analysis, to prevent irregularities that may involve stakeholders from our football competitions. In this way we reaffirm our commitment with the sports betting operator guild, with the Prosecutors Office and the National Government.

“Genius Sports is the largest company worldwide to guarantee control over this and will work alongside us in all of the games of our competitions. We are the first league in South America to engage integrity and transparency directly”.

Mark Locke, CEO of Genius Sports Group, said: “Since 2016 when we opened our Latin American headquarters in Medellín and hosted the region’s first ever sports integrity summit in Bogota the following year, Colombia has been central to our global success. It is a real honour to have been chosen by Dimayor as their trusted data and integrity partner, ensuring their fans can have faith in a fair and transparent contest and the league is equipped with the information and tools to maintain a clean, honest and unpredictable sport.”

Rix.GG hires legendary tournament admin Umar “Maru” Aswat
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Rix.GG, a top UK esports organisation known for hosting grassroots tournaments, announces Umar “Maru” Aswat as the new Tournament and Events Manager.

Umar “Maru” Aswat is most known for his admin work across top CS:GO esports events in the UK and internationally including BLAST, ESL, Insomnia, and epic.LAN among others. Umar will manage all tournaments and events at Rix.GG including a series of tournaments yet to be announced.

Jamie Lewis, CEO and Founder, said: “Umar is a British LAN legend and we’re extremely excited to have him fronting our tournament operations moving forward. Maru will be instrumental in ensuring all the Rix.GG tournaments are fair, competitive, and as smooth as possible, as well as a fun broadcast for everyone at home.”

Umar “Maru” Aswat, Tournament and Events Manager, said: “I’m very happy and excited to be the Tournament and Events Manager at Rix.GG. Life does work in mysterious ways. Having ‘retired’ from my duties over a year ago, I did not think I would ever have an opportunity to make a significant impact on grassroots esports.

When Rix.GG first contacted me, it wasn’t a ‘we would like to talk to you about our plans’. It was more of a ‘we want you to be part of our plans’ and that reignited a feeling I haven’t felt in a while.

I haven’t had the opportunity to be in a leadership role in a full time capacity, so I am excited to be able to showcase my talents and be creative, but also encourage and nurture new talents to become better. I also want to help players know that they have a place to play, casually or competitively, without the fear of mismanagement. Feedback is one of the greatest tools when utilised correctly and I will do my best to make sure your voice is heard.

Finally, I have the opportunity to work in the field I love, esports. Many people who have worked with me know that I get my ‘fix’ when a tournament runs as good as it could possibly be.

I just want to say a final thank you to everyone who I have worked with, to the organisers who I have worked for and to the players who have helped me with all the feedback. You have all helped me get to this position today.

I’m ready to start this new chapter and help UK esports be the best it can be!”
