Sportradar has entered into a new, integrity-focused partnership with West Asian Football Federation (WAFF).

Under the agreement, Sportradar and the WAFF will run a series of educational workshops to uphold and protect the integrity of regional competitions across West Asia. 

Sportradar Integrity Services’ education and prevention team will provide educational material to help educate stakeholders in WAFF competitions on topics surrounding international sports betting, match fixing and social media integrity. 

“The WAFF is committed to fighting match-fixing, and under this agreement we are demonstrating the importance we place on protecting the game in West Asia,” WAFF general secretary Khalil Al Salem said.

“We are excited to collaborate and work together with Sportradar to educate, spread awareness and protect the integrity of West Asian football.”

Sportradar’s managing director for integrity services, Andreas Krannich, added: “We are honoured to be starting this relationship with the WAFF, who are taking crucial proactive measures in the fight to prevent integrity issues. 

“We hope this relationship will be a fruitful one where we can collaboratively work together to safeguard the integrity of football in the region and help the WAFF become a model for other federations in Asia and around the globe.”
