Sportradar signs integrity partnership with new venture Twain Sport

| By Robert Fletcher
Sportradar has agreed to provide its Universal Fraud Detection System (UFDS) to Twain Sport, the newly launched live sport vertical from the Hybrid Sports League and BetGames.

Under the deal, Sportradar will integrate its UFDS into Twain’s hybrid sports tournaments, helping organisers to identify betting-related manipulation by tracking odds changes and liquidity across a range of markets.

The integrity partnership will also include auditing of events, league rules and concepts and monitoring of every single match played, while Sportradar will work with organisers to educate athletes about integrity standards.

The arrangement commenced with Twain Sports’ League launch earlier this month when the inaugural T-Basket competition began. 

“UFDS is the world’s best system to monitor and analyse the worldwide betting market for suspicious betting patterns,” Sportradar Integrity Services managing director Andreas Krannich said. “Using it, we support integrity in sport, law enforcement and state authorities to monitor, detect and analyse betting-related manipulation and other types of corruption.

“The extensive UFDS historical database and our unmatched experience mean that we are uniquely positioned to analyse and report on any relevant matter related to suspicious activity. We’re sure that with Twain Sport, we can now promise its products will be protected by some of the world’s most advanced technology.”

Twain Sport is a joint concept between BetGames, a developer of live dealer fixed-odds betting games, and the Hybrid Sports League, that stages hybrid sports tournaments in a range of custom-built arenas. 

The organisation aims to deliver 6,300 matches per month, averaging a turnover of matches every three minutes.

BetGames’ chief executive Andreas Koeberl said: “The highest level of integrity has always been the foundation of our new betting offering. We see the integration of Sportradar’s industry leading FDS into Twain Sport as key layer of integrity on behalf of our operator partners – ensuring we offer the very best live sports product on the market.

“Promising high-frequency betting and low-spend extended playing sessions, we’re confident that Twain Sport will prove transformative in the industry, and we can’t wait until the action kicks off in August.”
