H2 Introduces IBIA Aerts To Global  Betting Summary Dataset

Industry market intelligence provider H2 Gambling Capital has agreed to expand consumer data coverage of its ‘Global Betting Summary Dataset’ to provide data on illegal betting published by the International Betting Integrity Association (IBIA).

The new data set traces back to 2017 when 266 warnings were logged, to last year’s 183 registered ones. H2 reviews on a quarterly basis its breakdown coverage, categorising data by region, nation and sport.

Tennis and football are currently the most targeted sports by match-fixers representing about 80 percent of all IBIA incidents, while in 2017-19 warnings have been recorded for 15 sports in total.

The Director at H2, David Henwood 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.”
