Sportradar announced today that they have signed a long term partnership agreement with the Hong Kong Football Association, which will allow Sportradar to monitor all fraud related issues with sports and betting. Sportradar will deploy their Fraud Detection System (FDS) and ensure that fraud will be close to impossible to pull off.
The new agreement will cover all leagues under the Hong Kong FA, which includes around 113 games per season. The Hong Kong Premier League, Community Shield, Senior Shield, FA-Cup and Play-offs are all covered by this new FDS.
Speaking immediately after the panel, Darren Small said: “As part of our commitment to providing our clients with 24/7 coverage of football worldwide, Sportradar opened its first Asian office in Hong Kong. So it is incredibly exciting for us to add our ‘local’ FA from Hong Kong to the list of associations who will not compromise on integrity. It was a really proud moment for me to be able to discuss our shared commitment to safeguarding football with Mark Sutcliffe before the eyes of some of the most important stakeholders and decision-makers in global football”.
Mark Sutcliffe added: “It has really been impossible to ignore the credibility and reputation of Sportradar’s Security Services both in the region and internationally. So to have the FDS monitoring all our professional level football is reassuring and to have that in place for three seasons underlines our own commitment to keeping our competitions safe. Soccerex is the forum where football meets and to be able to put pen to paper here in Manchester and to be able to show our resolve to our fellow football leaders attending the match-fixing panel this morning was an opportunity the Hong Kong FA could not miss.”
