Through this collaboration, Sportradar will add yet another sports organization to its network of integrity solution clients. The firm will be monitoring all matches and competitions of the International Biathlon Union and will be utilizing its fraud-detecting algorithms to combat match-fixing and other suspicious activities.
This multi-year contract is an extension of the two organizations’ previous agreement which involved Sportradar’s intel and investigation solutions.
As match-fixing is a prominent risk for all sports around the world, we are delighted to have this opportunity to bolster our integrity efforts with Sportradar. Our new partner will help us implement one of the industry’s best sports integrity toolkits, which will help us ensure that our competitions are fair and free of any bad actors.
commented the Head of the Biathlon Integrity Unit, Greg McKenna.
As Biathlon is rapidly gaining popularity across the world, it is important to implement high-quality measures to protect the sport from malicious actors. This collaboration with the IBU is a clear indication that the sports organization is committed to holding a high standard of integrity for the sport, which is an objective that we are more than looking forward to helping them with.
remarked the Managerial Director of Sportradar’s Integrity Services, Andreas Krannich.
