Sportradar Integrity Services use its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) to provide bet monitoring for IHF events such as the men’s and women’s World, Junior and Youth World Championships, as well as the IHF Super Globe.
IHF president Dr Hassan Moustafa said: “We recognize the modern-day integrity threats that face global sport, and handball is no exception. The IHF makes it a top priority to have robust measures in place to help safeguard the integrity of our major events, not just at men’s and women’s senior level, but also at youth and junior level.
“Sportradar have a proven track record in the field of sports integrity, and the depth of their bet monitoring capabilities will help to support our overall integrity programme in the years ahead.”
Handball becomes the latest sport that Sportradar has agreed an integrity deal for this year, having signed multi-year agreements with the International Tennis Federation, International Cricket Council and European football governing body UEFA.
Sportradar Integrity Services managing director Andreas Krannich added: “We are delighted to partner with IHF to help support their integrity programme with our UFDS bet monitoring solution.
“We have witnessed rising integrity issues in handball over the past five years, and so we credit the vigilance shown by IHF in adding to the integrity provisions surrounding their events.
“At Sportradar, we are fully committed to assisting our partners’ integrity efforts and look forward to working together with the IHF to support the journey of global handball in the coming years.”
