SportsRadar, one of the world's leading providers of sports results to bookmakers, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Olympic and non-Olympic International Sports Federation Union, SportAccord. The deal has been signed in order to try and cooperate to educate approaches towards the sports betting industry.
“SportAccord’s position as the union for International Sports Federations from all around the world makes it a vital player in the global fight against betting- related match-fixing and they should be applauded for the work they are doing to protect the integrity of sport,” CEO of SportRadar, Carsten Koerl said and added;
“Sportradar through the signing of this agreement is honoured to assist in any way that we can.”
The agreement has been signed not long after SportRadar released their Sport Integrity Standards Organization, which is a project that will help share information between sports betting companies as well as create their own licensing system.
“Sportradar’s proven expertise in the field of betting related- match fixing prevention and education will prove invaluable to us.” President of SportAccord, Marius Vizer said.
