Working with what we love, esports
Become part of our story
We are Abios, a Stockholm-based esports company gathering, enriching and distributing engaging data and statistics. We help our partners distribute their data assets and our customers leverage data to push the envelope with their products and apps, and let their users dig into data from where the action is!
Abios was founded in the dawn of esports, with a mission to facilitate and enrich the esports experience. Since the beginning, we have put a lot of effort into providing accurate data about matches, tournaments, and teams within the esports scene. Our first endeavour was a community and consumer product, but the demand for engaging data grew amongst other businesses over time. This became the start of a new chapter for Abios.
As 2015 came to an end, we shifted our focus from consumer products to B2B sales of data. We now proudly work with several world-leading esports and gaming brands, ranging from news sites and search engines to sportsbooks and esports teams. Through our partners we make data and content available to millions of unique esports users every month, powering tens of millions of page views with captivating content.
What we do
We provide industry-leading esports data and technology to customers across the globe. By collecting and supplying everything from team and player history to live scores, Abios helps many established and growing companies improve their products.
At the same time, we help our data partners distribute and monetise their data.
As a result, Abios contributes to the entirety of esports by improving the overall accessibility of information and data for the esports viewers. We provide the building blocks to help the esports industry grow.
The start of our journey
Oskar and Anton sat down together while studying at the Stockholm School of Economics and Royal Institute of Technology and discussed venturing into the untouched industry of esports.
Abios Gaming AB
Abios is incorporated under the official name of Abios Gaming AB. The idea of esports betting must wait, there needs to be structure in esports first and the industry must mature.
Launch of Abios v1.0
The world's first calendar website and TV-guide for esports is launched, covering the top four games. The picture represents our original logo.
Abios joins the student incubator at the Royal Institute of Technology called KTH Innovation.
First paid employees
With some early seed money invested by the founders Abios starts to employ its first developers and editors part time. The founders are still working for free!

Sponsor and Organiser
Abios sponsors and hosts several top tier tournaments such as Viagame House Cup in Dracula's Castle, Transylvania. Abios also works closely with many of the worlds most known streamers.
Pivot to B2B
After receiving numerous inquiries from other firms to use our data, live scores and information the decision is made to start developing a B2B API and become a data provider instead of a consumer site.
Abios raises new capital and adds two new investors as shareholders, strengthening the balance sheet to build and distribute world leading data.
API and first customers
Abios launches the worlds first esports API containing all kinds of live and historical data. It contains everything from fixtures, tournament information and player stats.
