The European Handball Federation (EHF) has renewed its integrity partnership with Sportradar

The European Handball Federation (EHF) has renewed its integrity partnership with Sportradar.

Under the multi-year deal, Sportradar will provide the EHF with additional services aimed at safeguarding the integrity of the federation’s competitions.

The EHF and Sportradar have been working together since June 2017 in a joint effort to clamp down on threats to the integrity of the sport of handball.

Sportradar already provides a range of data, streaming, marketing and digital services across European Cup club competitions, but will now extend this to also include employing its Fraud Detection System across a number of EHF events.

In addition, the EHF will have the option to utilise Sportradar’s Intelligence and Investigation services, through which a team of dedicated intelligence experts can help investigate organisations or individuals who may be targeting European competitions.

“The EHF is committed to protecting the integrity of its flagship club and national team competitions,” EHF secretary general Martin Hausleitner said.

“This further extension to our cooperation with Sportradar brings us in line with many other leading sports organisations and will provide us with the tools and support to be able to maintain European handball’s reputation worldwide.”

Andreas Krannich, managing director integrity services at Sportradar, added: “We are very pleased to be able to provide our integrity services to the EHF as we forge an ever-stronger bond with this forward-thinking federation.

“Our expert team has been monitoring matches from the start of the year, using our unique and world-class intelligence and detection systems to flag any attempts to manipulate or corrupt this incredible sport.”
