Sportradar pens sporting integrity MoU with Bulgarian police

| By Robert Fletcher
Sportradar has signed a new memorandum of understanding with the General Directorate National Police of Bulgaria, with the aim of protecting and maintaining the integrity of sports in the country.

Under the strategic partnership, the organisations will exchange information, documents and analysis relating to sporting integrity, in order to better tackle fraud, match-fixing and corruption.

The General Directorate National Police of Bulgaria and Sportradar will also explore other opportunities for joint projects they can collaborate and support each other on.

“The MoU between the General Directorate National Police and Sportradar will contribute to the improvement of cooperation in the field of protection and safeguarding of integrity in sport and sports betting. Bulgarian sport is in a safer position as a result of this cooperation,” General Directorate National Police chief commissioner Nikolay Hadzhiev said.

Sportradar’s managing director integrity services Andreas Krannich added: “Maintaining the integrity of global sport is our number one priority, and partnerships like this one will help us reduce the threat of betting related corruption.

“Our objective is to establish effective communication channels with the General Directorate National Police in order to swiftly identify and resolve integrity issues facing sport in Bulgaria.”

The deal comes after Sportradar last week announced details of a similar agreement with the West Asian Football Federation.
