Sportradar Launches Integrity Exchange, Furthering Anti-Match Fixing Efforts

Sportradar Integrity Services, a unit of global sports technology company, Sportradar, has launched an integrity exchange to further engage bookmakers in the company’s anti-match fixing efforts.

Sportradar, who already supply 150 sports integrity solutions to federations, leagues, law enforcement and state authorities, have now launched Sportradar Integrity Exchange, a network which enables bookmakers to report suspicious betting activity.

Provided at no cost, the exchange marks Sportradar’s first initiative with bookmakers, which offers them the opportunity to take an active role and initiate investigations against match-fixing.

Additionally, the exchange also aims to enhance bookmakers’ understanding of the match-fixing landscape, by providing them with:

    • A two-way channel to exchange information and raise integrity-related concerns with a team of integrity experts.
    • Exclusive data-driven intelligence about the global match-fixing situation, as well monthly and quarterly reports featuring insights and analysis.
    • An onboarding session with a dedicated integrity expert and access to online education tools like webinars covering three topics – anti-match fixing, match-fixing theory and social media integrity.
    • An annual report, featuring global match-fixing trends, regional and market breakdowns, sports being manipulated and competition types most at risk.

Commenting on the launch of the exchange, Sportradar Integrity Services managing director, Andreas Krannich, said: “We’re inviting bookmakers to strengthen their contribution to the anti-match-fixing fight.”

“The Sportradar Integrity Exchange is a key part of our integrity vision to tackle match-fixing and follows the Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) bet monitoring system for sports organisations that we made free-of-charge last year.

“It means that we can address corruption from different aspects of the industry – it’s the flip side of the same coin and is the next step in our strategy to fight the growing match-fixing problem,” Krannich said.

The launch of Sportradar Integrity Exchange comes after the company released their ‘Betting Corruption and Match-Fixing in 2021’ report, where it revealed a record number of suspicious activity in global sport.
