The Esports Integrity Commission (ESIC) has announced that Kambi and its esports data subsidiary, Abios, are now Anti-Corruption Supporters. This partnership underscores Kambi’s commitment to corporate integrity and sports ethics, aligning with ESIC’s mission to combat match-fixing and corruption in esports.
