ZURICH: FIFA subsidiary Early Warning System GmbH has signed a deal with digital media company Perform.

The agreement will see Perform integrate the historical and live performance data produced by its Opta brand into the EWS integrity monitoring system.

The two entities have also pledged to share information in an open and collaborative manner.

“This cooperation with a leading sports data service provider is a perfect fit for our monitoring approach to ensure an effective and fact-based match analysis. Perform is a very strong partner in the global fight against match manipulation, and such cooperation represents a fundamental keystone of our overall strategy,” said FIFA’s director of security Ralf Mutschke.

“Perform fully supports EWS and its commitment to monitor and respond to the threat of match manipulation. We are delighted that Perform digital content can so readily be used in partnership with rights holders in order to strengthen the integrity of competitions. We look forward to cooperating with EWS for the benefit of Fifa competitions and those of its associations and confederations for a long time to come,” said Perform director of integrity and security Matthew Drew.
