Sportradar strengthens commitment to the integrity of global sports

Sportradar Integrity Services – global leader in delivering sports data and content to media companies, sports federations and the betting industry– have released their plans for a Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) thereby strengthening its position to continue safeguarding the integrity of global sports.

The UFDS will be built on Sportradar existing bet monitoring system that since 2005 had classified more than 5,300 matches as suspicious while in 2020 alone, over 600,000 matches were monitored across 1000+ leagues and competitions across 26 different sports.

Evolving from its current bet monitoring service and supported by major sports organizations such as the International Olympic Committee, the UFDS will be funded by Sportradar and offered free of charge to any sports federation, or league worldwide. The planned release will be in October 2021.

Carsten Koerl, Sportradar Group Chief Executive said: “Today marks a very special day in the history of our company, as we announce the upcoming launch of our core bet monitoring system, at no financial charge to any sports federation or league that wants to use it.

We believe that integrity is fundamental to public confidence in sport, and that wrongdoing at any tier of competition affects all levels of sports and its fans.”

The IOC’s Olympic Movement Unit on the Prevention of the Manipulation of Competitions commented: “It continues to be important for all sporting organisations to understand the most sustainable way to protect sports from competition manipulation. Utilising this substantial investment by Sportradar with its proven and reliable bet monitoring of the global betting market can be the foundation for a holistic integrity programme.” While also adding that: “An all-encompassing approach is fundamental in order to achieve sustainable and long-term results.”

Sportradar was established in 2001 and have their headquarters in St Gallen Switzerland. Sportradar has offices across 24 countries employing over 2000 people while serving more than 1000 companies and organizations.
