Sportradar seals integrity deal with Swiss Handball Federation
| By Nosa Omoigui
Sportradar Integrity Services has entered a multi-year partnership with the Swiss Handball Federation (SHV) to monitoring events for suspicious betting activity.
Sportradar Integrity Services will deploy its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) to provide bet monitoring for events such as the Quickline Handball League, Mobiliar Handball Cup and other men’s and women’s matches at senior and youth level.
UFDS combats match fixing by analysing betting patterns for abnormalities and reporting any suspicious activity to Sportradar’s partners.
“We have witnessed growing integrity threats over the years, particularly due to recent global events, as well as an increasing betting interest in sports such as handball, and so are excited to have entered into this partnership with the SHV,” Sportradar Integrity Services managing director Andreas Krannich said.
“At Sportradar, we are fully committed to assisting our partners’ integrity efforts and look forward to working together with the SHV to support the integrity of Swiss handball in the years ahead.”
“We are taking all the necessary steps to safeguard our game,” added Jürgen Krucker, managing director of Swiss Handball. “We recognise that bet monitoring plays an important role in this across all levels of competition.
“Sportradar Integrity Services have a proven track record in the field of sports integrity, and by bringing them on board to monitor our competitions through their UFDS solution we will have crucial visibility of global betting activity surrounding our competitions.”
