Euroleague Basketball teams up with Sportradar to safeguard integrity

Euroleague Basketball, the organiser of top European club competitions, has forged a partnership with Sportradar, a leading sports technology company, to uphold the integrity of its competitions over the next two years.

Under the terms of the agreement, Sportradar Integrity Services will implement comprehensive measures to ensure integrity protections across EuroLeague, EuroCup, the under-18 competition and the Euroleague Basketball Next Generation Tournament.

Sportradar will leverage its advanced AI-powered Universal Fraud Detection System to analyse and monitor betting patterns on matches from Euroleague’s flagship competitions, ensuring early detection of any suspicious activities.

Sportradar will deliver anti-match-fixing educational support to stakeholders through a combination of in-person and online workshops, equipping participants with the knowledge and tools to combat unethical behaviour.

“Euroleague Basketball is fully committed to guarantee that all games are disputed under an unquestionable Fair Play environment, practicing a zero-tolerance policy for any inadequate behaviour,” stated Ibrahim Erkan, Euroleague Basketball’s sports director.

“Sportradar Integrity Services’ vast knowledge in the field of sports integrity is an invaluable control tool to reinforce the monitoring protocol deployed in our competitions to guarantee that they fulfill the most strict moral and ethical principles and values such as honesty, honor, dependability, and trustworthiness.”

Andreas Krannich, Executive Vice President of Sportradar Integrity Services, added, “At Sportradar we have witnessed growing integrity issues across global basketball in recent years, so it is vitally important that such a significant player in global basketball has acted by opting to utilise our robust and varied integrity solutions.”

Sportradar Integrity Services boasts partnerships with numerous sporting organisations worldwide, including World Aquatics, the European Table Tennis Union, the International Golf Federation, and the Brazilian Football Confederation. With tie-ups spanning over 150 sports federations and leagues, Sportradar Integrity Services is at the forefront of safeguarding integrity across a wide spectrum of sports.
